Emergency School Closing Information

  •  

    The decision to close school or to change start or dismissal times because of inclement weather or other unanticipated emergencies will be based upon available information from local law enforcement agencies, weather forecast services, and neighboring school district administrators. If school will be closed, every effort will be made to finalize the school closing decision by 5 a.m. of that school day. Roadway conditions and the possibility of dangerously unsafe temperatures are the main factors that drive the decision.


    Most of the District's schools are not fully air-conditioned, and the decision to close schools may be made for extreme heat conditions. To learn more about how the NSSD112 decides to close schools during hot weather, click here.
     
    If one or more of our schools close, or the schedule changes, the District will communicate with parents and staff as soon as possible in the following ways:
     
    Website:
    School closing and schedule change information will be posted on our district website at www.nssd112.org, and on each school’s home page.
     
    Telephone: 
    All parents who have shared their phone contact information and given permission will be contacted through our automated phone messaging system as soon as the decision to close or change the schedule is made. If a parent does not receive a school-closing call, it is because the phone number is either not listed properly in our system, or the permission is not on file. Please contact the school office on the next valid school day to update the files.
     
    Email:
    All parents who have shared their email contact information and given permission will be also be contacted via an email alert.

    Other Sources:

    Closing information will be shared with local broadcast media, including WBBM Radio 780; WGN Radio 720;  all local television news stations, and  www.emergencyclosings.com.
