D230 Emergency Closing Procedures in the Event of Inclement Weather
With the second semester underway, District 230 would like to inform students, families, and staff about Emergency Closing Procedures in the event of inclement weather or other reasons to close campuses.
In the event of an Emergency Closing, the district will run the Fully Remote Schedule for the day of the closure. For example, if it is a Monday, the district will run the schedule typically followed for a Monday, however, all students will be remote. While in Stage 1, 2, or 3 of the D230Proud Reopening Plan, if it is a Wednesday, the district will run the typical Wednesday fully remote schedule with no Zero Hour or Advisory Period.
In the event of an Emergency Closing, all staff will work remotely. The three high schools, the administration center, and Willow Grove will be closed to staff. Only custodial, maintenance, or designated staff needed to remove snow and maintain the safety of the buildings, etc. will report onsite.
In the event that District 230 needs to close school because of inclement weather or some other emergency, check these sources for information. Communication will be sent as soon as possible to allow families and staff to plan accordingly. Every effort will be made to communicate the night before the closing, however, when this is not possible communication will be sent by 7 a.m. on the day of the closing.
Phone, Text & Email
The district will send an “all call” phone message, text, and email to families announcing a school closing. In the event of an early dismissal due to an emergency, this message will be sent to all emergency contacts provided in Skyward. It is important for families to provide accurate information during the registration process.
