Worth reading.


This update for this app is quite literally the stupidest bunch of nonsense I have ever witnessed. I can’t even check the local school closings, because the application wants to send me to an alternate website and my won’t let me view the domain of which it requires to view it. I have a brand new iPhone, so I know it isn’t due to software failure on my part. Seriously, the simplest thing on the entire application is officially as useless as this updated app.

Don’t care for the update


I’m having issues with the update. School closings are difficult to find, and loads an insecure page warning. If I continue, I get a SPAM advertisement. I also got insecure page warning when I clicked on privacy policy. Needs some work.

School Closing issue


Thank you for finally making it where we can view closings now.
