With snow in the forecast, now is the time to remind yourself of the various ways District 205 announces school closings and late start openings resulting from inclement weather. (And it’s also the time to think about childcare plans.) A late start or school closing announcement is made by 5:45 AM via the following channels:
• Information is first posted on the District's website at www.elmhurst205.org
• Talk205 phone calls, e-mail and SMS messages are sent out.
• A message is recorded on the District 205 Center’s main telephone line at (630) 834-4530.
• Notification is sent to the Emergency Closing Center, which broadcasts such information on WGN-AM (720), WBBM-AM (780), and CBS-TV (2), NBC-TV (5), ABC-TV (7), WGN-TV (9), FOX-TV, and CLTV cable. Visit the .web site at http://www.emergencyclosingcenter.com
The next all-district Student Late Arrival Day is Wednesday, December 14. Certified staff and administrators will be using this time to collaboratively review student data, discuss professional growth topics, problem solve, share best practices and continue the work of building a Professional Learning Community.
The Student Late Arrival instructional schedule for 2016-17 will be as follows:
AM Early Childhood – 9:45 AM to 11:55 AM
The 2016-17 School Calendar (which provides a one-page overview of this information), may be found on the District 205 calendar page.
