School Closed Thursday, February 19th

Posted February 18th, 2015 by Ms. Durchslag

All District 54 schools will be closed tomorrow, Thursday, Feb. 19, 2015. The National Weather Service has issue a wind chill advisory until noon Thursday, which calls for wind chill values as low as -26.

Our number one priority every day is keeping children safe. We have about 8,000 students who ride a bus. The other 6,500 students either walk or get a ride to school. We cannot assume that all students can get a ride to school on a cold weather day. We also can’t assume that all children will be dressed appropriately for this weather. Thank you for your understanding and support.

All after-school and evening activities at schools on Feb. 19 are canceled as well. The Rafferty Administration Center will be open and the School Board meeting scheduled for 7 p.m. Feb. 19 will be held.

The District 54 Choral Festival scheduled for 7 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 18, will still occur. The event is located at Frost Junior High School.

School Closed on Monday, February 2nd

Posted February 1st, 2015 by Ms. Durchslag

All District 54 schools will be closed on Monday, Feb. 2, 2015, due to the weather. All after-school and evening activities are canceled as well.

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 today’s blizzard) sometimes dictate that we close. Thank you for your understanding and support. The decision to close schools is made one day at a time.
