As we get into the peak of winter (and possibilities of cancellations/delays increase) we would like to remind our parents that a free messenger service is available. This service provides text and/or voice messages from AES about important announcements, including cancellations and delays. School officials will try to update parents/guardians using the messenger service in a timely manner whenever possible. It is highly recommended to monitor local media outlets as well.
Instructions are available for download in the 'Parent Information' section of the resources tab.
If you're a first time voice user, be aware that automated phone messages may initially identify as being from the Eastport School Department. This is because the AOS central office is located in Eastport, and where the program originates. After following the instructions, the system will then clarify the message is from the Alexander Elementary School.
Please note: First time text users must agree to receiving text messages (typing "Yes" or "Y") to the number 67587. If you have not confirmed using this method, you will not receive messages.

If you are not receiving messages, and would like to, please contact the school for information OR visit the 'Closings/Delays' section in the resources tab to sign up.
If you already have signed up for the messenger service through AES and would like to change how you receive messages (i.e. get only text alerts) please contact the school OR visit the 'Closings/Delays' section in the resources tab to submit changes.
