INFORMATION about WEATHER RELATED SCHOOL CLOSINGS

Weather Related School Closings

Cancelling school is a difficult and complicated process for any school district to make, and it's a decision that impacts our families in many different ways. As we head into another unpredictable winter season in Illinois, here are a few things to remember.


WHEN IS THE DECISION MADE?
If the district plans to close schools for the day due to inclement weather, the decision is made so calls can go out at 6:00 a.m.  Our district website and Facebook may have the information posted earlier than 6:00 a.m. 

WHERE WILL INFORMATION BE POSTED REGARDING SCHOOL CLOSINGS?
District Website: www.oes141.org
Facebook: OES 141
Local Media: WCMY 1430
