Emergency Closing Information

  • On rare occasions, it may be necessary to close District 65 schools and centers due to extreme temperatures, inclement weather, or other emergency situations. The decision to cancel school is always a difficult one, yet is made with the safety of students and staff in mind. As an alternative to closing schools for the entire day, District 65 has implemented a late start option where all schools and centers would open two hours after their normal start time. Please see additional information regarding late starts below.

    In the event of a school cancellation, the district will communicate with staff and families as follows:

    Please ensure that the most current contact information is on file with the district. Any changes can be made via SISK12 (parent portal), email parents@district65.net, or call 847-859-8055 / 847-859-8056. District 65 staff members can access the 'Change of Information Form' by navigating to the 'Staff Resources' section of our website and selecting 'HR Documents'.
