Note: If you do not respond, then you have “Opted Out,” and you will not receive any text notification.

In the case of emergencies such as a school closing, Moraine Valley will notify you by e-mail, phone message, college Web site, and various news media outlets. The communication type used is based on the requirements of the message to be delivered.
