FlashAlert Phone App

ESD 112’s Early Care and Education centers use FlashAlert, an Internet-based system, for delivering news and emergency closures or other information regarding our centers. As we head into the winter months and the potential for unpredictable weather, the FlashAlert app is a great way to stay up-to-date on any emergency or weather-related closures or changes to our center operating hours. This free iOS/Android app, FlashAlert Messenger, allows you to receive emergency messages through Push Notification.

Download the FlashAlert App

Follow these simple steps to get started:

  1. Go to and enter your email address to start the subscription.
  2. Using the app store on your phone, download and install the free FlashAlert Messenger app that looks like the icon to the right.

All addresses registered on FlashAlert will remain confidential. Once a year, you will receive an email at your registered email address asking if you wish to continue your subscription.

All notifications about our child care centers in Clark County will come from “Early Care & Ed – ECE @ ESD 112” so make sure you are signed up for this alert if you attend one of these centers.

Frequently Asked Questions

And the app will allow you to see all of the recent news posted in your region.

Child Care Inclement Weather Procedures

If a school district closes, any ESD 112 Early Care and Education Center in that school district will also close program. It is really important that families are familiar with which school district their center resides in the event that there is a closure or late start. We have included a chart which identifies our Early Care and Education Centers and the school district boundary in which they are located, as well as a direct link to the school district’s FlashAlert page.

Please contact your Center Director with any questions. Thank you.
