The Elkton School District now uses an Internet-based system for delivering changes in schedule, such as snow closures, to the news media.

The message delivery is being extended directly to the public through a system called FlashAlert. Through the FlashNews.net website, Valley Information Network, (serving Lane, Linn, Benton, Douglas & Coos Counties) collects emergency information, news releases and high school and college sports scores from dozens of schools and provides it to the news media via a continuously updated website and e-mails. It also automatically places this information into the websites of participating stations and newspapers.

You are now able to self-register and manage up to five home or office email and/or cell phone text message addresses and receive emergency information just minutes after we post it, at no cost to you.

To register, go to FlashAlert.net and in the left frame, select “Subscribe to receive news from participating organizations.” Enter your primary email address twice. On the next screen, under “Add an Organization,” choose the “Eugene/Springfield/Albany/Corvallis/Roseburg” region, then “Douglas Co. Schools”, then “Elkton”. Click on “Subscribe.”

Below that, you can enter up to four more addresses. When you are done, click “Update Email Addresses and Send Test Messages.” A verification message will be sent to each of your listed addresses.

Please be aware that with the proliferation of spam and the resulting spam filters, it is impossible to completely guarantee message delivery, since different filters block different messages. After adding or changing email addresses, have test messages sent to verify they will pass through your mail server’s filters.

All addresses registered on FlashAlert will remain confidential and shall not be released to any person or organization. Once a year, you will receive an email at your primary address asking if you wish to continue your subscription.

If you have any questions or need help signing up for this service, contact Patty Gray at Elkton High School at 541-584-2228 ext #1.
