School Closings, Emergency Notifications
Snowflake 1 District 70 takes closing schools seriously. When the decision is made to close schools due to inclement weather, District 70 uses an emergency notification system to deliver phone calls and emails about school closings or safety emergencies.

 There also now is an option to opt-in to receive the information via text by texting 67587 with either Y or YES as the message you send. 

 This text (SMS) service only will be used in the event of school closings or a school emergency. For more information about school closings, please read the FAQ.

Snowman It's snow season!  Students must have their "5 points" to be able to play in the snow: coat, hat, gloves, snowpants and snowboots. Without all 5, students will stay on the blacktop. Come dressed to play in white stuff! PLEASE REMEMBER TO SEND YOUR STUDENT WITH SHOES TO CHANGE INTO ONCE THEY ARE INSIDE THEIR CLASSROOM. Leaving gym shoes at school is a great solution to this problem!

If the temperature drops below 10 degrees fahrenheit or the wind chill drops below 0, the students will stay inside for recess.  We use the weather website weatherbug.com because it has a station as close Libertyville High School and because it shows both temperature and windchill separately.

Please follow this link to learn about what determines a "snow day": http://www.d70schools.org/?sect=dept&func=cust&dept_id=24&cust_id=64
