  • SchoolMessenger Emergency Alert System Test for September 3, 2015 Has Been Canceled - The District had originally planned on testing our SchoolMessenger emergency alert system on Thursday, September 3, 2015. This test has been canceled. Implementing an emergency alert test may unintentionally cause trepidation to those receiving the message, as well as result in additional disruptions to the operation of our school offices. TheSchoolMessenger emergency alert system was successfully utilized on three separate occasions on Tuesday, September 1, 2015 in response to the Fox Lake Tragedy.

    If you did not receive any of the SchoolMessengeralerts on Tuesday, September 1, 2015, please contact the WGS school office.
