This area of our web site is reserved for the reporting of emergency school closing information in District 57. The information on this page will be updated as necessary. During the school year, this will give parents and staff timely information about the status of our schools during inclement weather, and any other conditions that might call for the closing of our facilities. For detailed information, please see this letter to parents
The District will update this website and our social media accounts (Facebook and Twitter) as soon as a school closing decision has been made. SwiftK12 phone messages also are sent. However, the system sometimes takes up to an hour to complete all calls, so in the event the decision to close school is made after 9:30 p.m., the District will wait and send out the telephone notice by 5:30 a.m. the following morning. In addition, a facility search is available at the on-line Emergency Closing Center at http://www.emergencyclosingcenter.com/
. For further information, families also can tune to local media outlets, including AM radio stations WGN (720), and WBBM (780), and TV stations CBS (2), NBC (5), WLS (7), WGN (9), Fox (32), and CLTV News on cable.
