It never seems soon enough to communicate our plan concerning inclement weather or a school building heating or power emergency. Parents have the ability to update contact information in their PowerSchool parent portal to select how they wish to receive emergency alerts (text, voice, or e- mail). We also post school closing information online at www.Emergencyclosings.com. This online website also electronically sends the information to local radio stations (WGN 720 and WBBM 780) and to local television stations (Channels 2, 5, 7, 9 (WGN), 32 (FOX), and to CLTV) for reporting to the public.
In light of the experience of utilizing all five snow days this past winter, the District now has the option of utilizing Pulaski Day on March 2, 2015 as a school attendance day rather than a holiday should we have a similar experience in 2014-15. Should the District decide to exercise this option, parents will be informed in a timely manner.
