Emergency Closing Information
Emergency Closing Information

In case it should be necessary to close or delay the start of school, notification will appear on the District 210 home page and the District's Facebook page. The announcement will also be given to the following radio stations:

WJOL AM 1340 in Joliet,
WJOL FM 96.7 in Joliet,
WGN AM 720 in Chicago, and
WLS AM 890 in Chicago.

Students and parents may also call the student attendance number at:

(815) 485-7777 for Central
(815) 464-3150 for East
(815) 534-3100 for North
(815) 717-3535 for West

to find out if school is closed or has a weather emergency day schedule. The phone line is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Bus drivers and students are instructed to start ten minutes earlier during severe weather and road conditions. If the bus fails to arrive within a reasonable time, the students should get under cover and wait for a second bus. The extra bus is always sent from the school and leaves promptly upon notification.

In case of an impending storm during the day, students may be sent home early.

Lincoln-Way High School District 210 has implemented the Connect Ed mass communication service. This service enables the school district to reach all parents, faculty and staff by phone or e-mail almost instantaneously. The Connect Ed system provides two ways to communicate to our parents: one to use for emergencies only and the other to use as a community outreach service. The emergency system will dial up to six phone numbers and send to a maximum of four e-mail addresses per student. The community outreach dials the primary/phone number. To date we have used this system to notify parents of weather emergencies such as delayed starts due to inclement weather.

Thank you to our parents who have updated their phone numbers and e-mail addresses with the school. Please continue to do so by contacting the PPS office in your student’s high school. Our contact list is only as accurate as the information we receive from our parents. As always, we appreciate your support.
