Closings and Cancellations

The Superintendent makes the decision to close schools in the event of severe weather or other emergencies that threaten the safety of students, staff members, school or property.  Information about school closings will be announced immediately after a decision is made.  The best ways to find out if school will be in session are to:

  • Wait for notification from District 200.
  • Visit the District 200 website.  A large banner will be posted across the top of each webpage, announcing any emergency closing.
  • Visit the D200 Facebook page, where a message will be posted.
  • Watch/listen to Chicagoland/McHenry County news media.
  • Check out the Emergency Closing Center at www.emergencyclosings.com.
