PSESD Closure Guidelines

PSESD Communications  is committed to trying to have inclement weather closure announcements made by 6:00 a.m.

There are several ways employees can find out if the PSESD office has closed due to inclement weather:

  • For those who have internet access, check the Public Schools Emergency Communications System at FlashAlert.net. More specific announcements will be placed, on the front pages of www.psesd.org and www.mypsesd.org.
  • A message will be sent to employees via our Emergency Communications service, FlashAlert.net. Sign-up now for FlashAlert.net.
  • Closure information will be given to the media via FlashAlert.net. The following stations are most likely to broadcast this information: KIRO TV (CH. 7), KIRO RADIO (710 AM), KOMO TV (CH. 4), KOMO Radio (1000 AM), or KING TV (CH. 5)

Closed Means Closed  When the offices are closed, all events at PSESD Renton and/or Puyallup locations will be cancelled. If anyone has an event to be cancelled or delayed and are unable to reach participants through phone, email or other methods, please contact comm@psesd.org and we will add it to the office closure news item on the front page of psesd.org.
