Weather & School Closures

Severe weather or another emergency may require school to be closed. A decision to close school is generally made by 6:00 a.m. and is made for one day at a time.

Please be assured that we are in constant contact with weather service forecasts. If weather forecasts for our immediate area begin to worsen, we will always make decisions based on the safety of our students and staff. Always assume that school will open as usual; however, it is always important to check with one or more of the following sources of information to obtain accurate and up-to-date information:

  • Text and Automated Messaging: School closings are announced through a text and messaging process through our emergency notification system. This process will contact every phone number in our school system.
  • Call: 1-847-885-3230, Press 5. This is the school number. Information will be provided regarding the opening or closing of school.
  • Online: - Status will be posted on the home page of the school's website.
  • Facebook and other social media outlets. 

The parent or guardian, ultimately make the decision whether to send your child to school. If you do decide to keep your child home on a day in which the weather is extremely inclement, the absence will be considered excused and your child will be given every opportunity to make up missed work. Please be sure to notify the office as you would for any other day your child is absent.
