In an Emergency
Should the school be closed (or opening delayed) due to emergency conditions or unusually inclement weather, please check the front page of our website at www.rowlandhall.org between 6 and 8 am for further information.
School Closure or Delayed Start
Details will also be provided by Rowland Hall to:
- Channel 2 (KUTV)
- Channel 4 (KTVX)
- Channel 5 (KSL)
- Channel 13 (FOX)
- Radio stations KUER FM 90.1 (Wasatch Front), KUER FM 89.5 (Park City) and KSL 1160 AM.
Please do not call the school. It is important to leave the school lines open in times of emergency.
The Alert Now Notification SystemRowland Hall is using the AlertNow Rapid Communication Service to deliver urgent campus-wide or school-wide emergency messages via voice and text messaging within minutes to parents’ telephones or any Internet-enabled device, including mobile phones and computers. Please make sure that when you change email or phone service providers and have new contact information that you notify the front desk at your child(ren)’s division(s) as soon as possible.
Alert Now will be used to communicate snow day or other school closure notifications or any other urgent emergency information as needed.
AlertNow will supplement our emergency communication procedures and replace outdated phone trees that require large blocks of time to deliver messages to multiple recipients. When you receive an AlertNow message from us the school phone number is displayed on caller ID for non-emergency calls and distinguishes urgent emergency calls with a "411" caller ID display.
Parents, please remember that Rowland Hall will only release students to an adult (not a sibling).
General Emergency Procedures
Emergency drills – fire, earthquake, shelter in place – are held regularly at both campuses and emergency preparedness procedures are reviewed and evaluated continually by both in-school faculty and staff emergency committees and parent committees associated with our Home and School Association.
Earthquake Emergency ContactThe out-of-state phone number to call during an earthquake, or any other emergency when local phone service is disrupted, is the Pilgrim School, Los Angeles, CA, 213-385-7351.
Note to Media
In an emergency, please do not call our school's land line. Instead, please call Director of Marketing and Communication Stephanie Orfanakis on her mobile phone at 801-244-2862 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
