Emergency Closings

SnowfallImportant Information

On inclement weather days, it may be necessary to cancel school or delay the start time of the school day. On such occasions, the school district encourages parents to check the website for up-to-date information on school closings or call (847) 238-1234 (touch-tone phone needed). You may also listen to the radio, watch local newscasts, or check in with the Emergency Closing Center.

In addition, the district will utilize its mass notification system, SchoolMessenger, to alert parents and staff of any alteration to the school day due to inclement weather. Login to Family Access and customize which phones receive Weather Alerts from District 201-U. Click here for more information. PTO's also have a telephone chain system in place to notify parents when school closes or dismisses early.

If the possibility exists that a parent or older sibling will not be home, we encourage parents to designate an alternate destination for their children if school dismisses early due to inclement weather or an unforeseen circumstance.
