Schools closed February 1, 2019
We regret to inform you that we will be closing schools again on Friday, Feb. 1, 2019. Our bus company First Student, notified us today that despite working on them all day, they were unable to start a large number of buses due to the extremely cold conditions.
District 54 buses about 11,500 students every day. With the temperatures below 0 degrees tonight, they do not feel certain that the buses will start tomorrow morning. Therefore, we are erring on the side of caution and safety and cancelling school tomorrow. While not all students take the bus, we felt it unfair to have school when many students would not be able to attend.
The Rafferty Administration Center will be open. Thank you for your understanding and support.
