Swiftk12 Alerts for Cancellations and Delays

North Tama uses SwiftReach/SwiftK12, to provide emergency notifications to parents. 

In the event of a delay, cancellation, or early dismissal due to weather, a SwiftK12 alert will be sent via phone, text, and/or email to parents of students registered at North Tama.

Parents were able to indicate their contact preferences notifications at registration, and will receive voice calls or texts or emails as requested.

Parents who would like to make a change in preferences can do so by contacting the school, 319-478-2265.

Media Sources for Late Starts, No School or Early Outs

In the event of a late start, cancellation, or early out, North Tama contacts the following media sources:

  • KWWL (Channel 7) 
  • KCRG (Channel 9) 
  • KGAN (Channel 2) 

Please keep in mind that these television stations do not always broadcast our announcements on the air; sometimes, they only list the announcements on their websites.  North Tama also has no control over how quickly the announcements are made.  The BEST way to make sure you are informed of delays, cancellations, and early dismissals is to subscribe to the SwiftReach Text Alerts described above. 


Adjusted Bell Schedule for JH/HS

In the event of a late start, the Junior High and High School will run an adjusted bell schedule.
