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&nbsp;<strong>school closings or safety emergencies</strong>.<br /><br />&nbsp;There also now is an option to opt-in to receive the information via text by texting <strong>67587</strong> with either <strong>Y</strong> or <strong>YES</strong>&nbsp;as the message you send.&nbsp;<br /><br />&nbsp;<em>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&nbsp;<a href="http://www.d70schools.org/?sect=dept&amp;func=cust&amp;dept_id=24&amp;cust_id=64">FAQ</a>.</em> Thu, 15 Dec 2016 12:26:02 -8200 http://www.d70schools.org/schoolsites/?school_id=5#5082 Robotics Classes Offered at All D70 Schools http://www.d70schools.org/schoolsites/?school_id=5#5027 Robotics&nbsp;classes with NAO are being offered this winter break on Dec. 27 with a special $35 mini-camp at Butterfield School (Check out the flier on our Virtual Backpack) and&nbsp;at <strong>Highland Middle Schoo</strong>l with HMS and <strong>Rockland School </strong>students, on Mondays from Jan.&nbsp;23, 2017-Feb. 20, 2017.&nbsp;Here, Supt.

From parents to community to staff focus groups, information has been gathered to support the two-day strategic planning process. A compilation of information gathered has been well integrated into a solid and formidable five-year plan. Approved by the Board of Education in June and introduced to teachers on their opening Institute Day, the energy and promise of District 70&#39;s future is at an all-time high. The new <a href="http://www.d70schools.org/lib/redirect.php?res_id=1261">Strategic Plan 2016-21</a> is now posted on the D70 website under DASHBOARD.

Field tests provide opportunities to enhance teaching and learning aligned with the New Illinois Science and Language Arts Standards as teachers and students interact with materials selected by our science and language arts committees. Following the field testing, feedback gathered from teachers, parents and students will help guide future decisions.

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!<br /><br />If the temperature drops below 10 degrees fahrenheit or the wind chill drops below 0, the students will stay inside for recess.&nbsp; 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.<br /><br />Please follow this link to learn about what determines a &quot;snow day&quot;: <a target="_blank" href="http://www.d70schools.org/?sect=dept&amp;func=cust&amp;dept_id=24&amp;cust_id=64">http://www.d70schools.org/?sect=dept&amp;func=cust&amp;dept_id=24&amp;cust_id=64</a> Mon, 12 Dec 2016 15:44:50 -8200 http://www.d70schools.org/schoolsites/?school_id=5#5072 Order your yearbook TODAY! http://www.d70schools.org/schoolsites/?school_id=5#5117 <img src="http://www.d70schools.org/schoolsites/icons/new.png" style="float:left; margin-right:3px;" /> <p>Rockland Yearbooks for the 2016-17 school year are on sale now!
