  • Cold Weather

    Dear District 50 Families,

    This record cold weather has been a challenge for all of us, but we have been able to operate a normal schedule this week and plan to continue normal operations into next week, barring unforeseen circumstances.

    It is important that children are dressed appropriately for when they come to school. This is especially true for students who walk to school or wait at bus stops.

    In the event of a closure or delay, families will receive an automated phone call and email from the Communications Department. It is important that your individual school have the correct contact information.

    In addition, details will be immediately posted on the District web page as well as the District's Facebook and Twitter accounts. Local media outlets will also share information with the public.

    Please stay warm and safe.
