PLAN AHEAD As winter weather is approaching, please make a plan if we would need to close school. HOW DO WE MAKE OUR DECISION? Please understand that we make the decision to open or close school for inclement weather based on careful analysis of all relevant factors, such as: • Road conditions. We must consider the most dangerous roads in the district. Even if your street looks clear, travel elsewhere in the district may be dangerous. • The amount of snow and ice that has accumulated. • Whether or not precipitation is continuous. • Building/facility conditions. • Temperature and wind chill. • Weather predictions. We prefer not to make our decision based on weather predictions because they are not always accurate. However, sometimes it is unavoidable. COMMUNICATIONS PROTOCOL Families will be informed of school cancellations or schedule changes as soon as possible through the following methods: • Text/Phone Message • Villa Grove School District App • School Social Media Platforms (Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram) • School Website • TV – WCIA Channel 3 Please be sure that your contact information is current in TeacherEase. This is crucial for ensuring important information is adequately communicated.
See you tomorrow!
Greetings to you during this bright time of year! May you experience the light of laughter, the warmth of love, and the joy of gratitude this season and beyond.
