Emergency School Closing information, as well as information on weather-related or other school emergency situations will be posted on this page.
A severe storm or other emergency may require school(s) to be closed. Generally, a decision to close school is made by 6:00 a.m.
Please continue to check this page for additional updates, or call the High School District 211 announcement line at (847) 755-6635.
In cooperation with local and State authorities, all precautions are taken for the safety and protection of students and staff.
Safety drills are held periodically, including fire, severe weather, and lock-downs. During any emergency situation or drill, it is important for students to follow directions from staff. Specific exiting directions are posted in all classrooms and hallways.
In the case of severe weather or other particular emergency situations, students will stay in the building in safe areas. They will not be released from school until allowed to do so by authorized personnel.
If school is not in session and severe weather or another emergency will cause school to be closed, District 211 utilizes a District-wide communication system. Parents are encouraged to update all phone numbers and email addresses in order to receive such communications. Parents also are advised to listen to the radio or television, log-on to the District 211 web site (www.d211.org), or call the District 211 announcement line (847-755-6635). In the event of an emergency, please try to avoid calling the school as this will tie up emergency telephone lines.
