All District 54 schools and offices are closed tomorrow – Thursday, February 3, 2011 – due to the winter storm. In addition, the School Board meeting and parent conferences scheduled for February 3 have also been canceled.
Parents who are interested in rescheduling their student’s conference should contact their teacher to arrange a mutually agreed upon time over the next few weeks. District 54 plans at this time to still hold any conferences scheduled for Friday, February 4.
The decision to close school is not one we make lightly. Our top concern is whether we believe the more than 14,000 students we serve can get to school safely (whether they walk, take a bus or ride in a car).
District 54 makes every effort to keep our schools open, but circumstances beyond our control (such as snow) sometimes dictate that we close. Thank you for your understanding and support. The decision to close schools is made one day at a time.
