Southeast Webster-Grand CSD is now using the School Alerts Event Notification System to help notify parents, caregivers, district patrons, and the media of any unexpected closings or changes in the schedule.
School administrators will post notices about school closings, delays and early dismissals, and media outlets, parents and others can sign up to "watch" certain schools or school districts, and receive instant notifications when those school administrators post a notice.
How do parents, guardians, daycare providers, school staff and the media receive notifications:
- E-mail/Cell Phone Alerts - When a school notice is sent out, you can receive an e-mail at home, work, or on e-mail-enabled mobile devices like cell phones and PDAs. To find out if you can receive e-mails on your mobile device, contact your service provider. Please note that School Alerts is not responsible for any fees your service provider may charge for receiving alerts.
Once you create an account, you can add as many e-mail addresses for as many schools or school districts as you like.
Here's how you can take advantage of this free service & sign up for e-mail and text message alerts:
- Click on "Sign Up!" in the Main Menu at https://schoolalerts.iowa.gov. This will take you to the "Enterprise A&A" screen for the State of Iowa.

Once you've selected Southeast Webster-Grand School, you are asked to enter the e-mail addresses or cell phone addresses where you would like notifications sent.
