School Closing Information
In instances of weather-related or other emergencies, you will receive an automated phone call from District 205. Email and text notifications will also be sent to those signed up for those notification services.
One of the following emergency options will be implemented:
1. School will be closed for the day
2. School start times will use the Emergency Late Start schedule.
If you do not receive a phone message, email or text or find emergency closing information listed on the website, posted to the District's social media pages or in the media, then assume that school is in session.
