If District 49 issues a 2-hour delay or closure students will work virtually from home. Teachers will be available online for student support.
If you are unsure of a closure or delay:
- D49 website - The D49 website will include weather information on the home page in the District Updates section. In addition, you can look for a banner at the top of the home page that will provide a brief statement such as "delayed," "Delayed Monitoring, or "Closed."
- Local TV stations - When winter weather hits, tune into any local TV station's newscast to view their weather delays/closure information.
- Social Media - Stay connected regarding delays and closures on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Follow District 49 on each of these platforms to see current information.
- Email/Text Messages - Be sure you have current contact information in our Student Information System to receive emails or text messages. Check with your child's school to ensure they have up-to-date information. If you do not receive an email or text when the weather is questionable, be sure to check other resources.
