Emergency Closings

Providing a safe and secure environment for our students, faculty, staff, and community is a top priority at San Jacinto College. San Jacinto College has partnered with SendWordNow to create SJC AlertMe, which will contact members of the College community through email, voice, and text messages, in the event of an emergency situation. In addition, the system also integrates with National Weather Service weather alerts, and offers a free app for smartphone users to receive push notifications in the event of a campus or college emergency.

SJC AlertMe provides San Jacinto College with another communication tool to keep students, faculty, staff, and the community informed during threatening situations and weather-related closings. In order to receive email, voice, and text messages, you must provide your current, up-to-date, personal contact information. Current San Jacinto College students, faculty and staff should do this through SOS. Members of the San Jacinto College community who wish to receive SJC AlertMe messages should sign up online at www.sanjac.edu/alert-me.

SJC AlertMe will be activated when the College determines a serious threat exists and the College community must take immediate action to remain safe and secure. The system will also be used to announce an unscheduled College and / or campus closing, or cancellation of classes due to situations such as severe weather.

Email is the official form of communication with San Jacinto College students, faculty, staff, and community. All SJC AlertMe alerts will be sent via email to students' and employees' San Jacinto College email account. Text and voice messages, as well as mobile app push notifications, may also be activated. There is no cost to sign up for this notification service. However, you are responsible for any data charges from your phone service provider associated with receiving messages.
