Soft Lockdown Lifted 4.23 at HMS & RO Schools
District 70

The Libertyville Police Department this morning (April 23), requested that both Highland Middle and Rockland schools be put on soft lockdown because of police activity in the area. Both schools were in a soft lockdown for about an hour. All students and staff were accounted for and safe during this time. 

During a soft lockdown in District 70, which has a low impact on school activities, students and staff move freely throughout the school although no one is allowed in or out of the building, and outside activities are canceled. 

In an abundance of caution, D70 Supt. Matt Barbini requested outside student activities be canceled at Adler Park, Butterfield, and Copeland Manor schools during the soft lockdown, although people were allowed to enter and exit the schools freely.  

As is District 70's tradition, information about a soft lockdown is shared as rapidly as possible with the staff and families impacted by the event at that school. More information is emailed to parents as it becomes available and if it is appropriate. We ask that community members not call the schools during lockdowns because the administration and staff are focused on keeping children safe and following law enforcement directions. We will post a notice on the website once police give us the all-clear for the buildings. 

Please note: the Libertyville Police are handling the incident that led to the lockdown as an active investigation and directly requested that District 70 share no more information about it. In partnership, District 70 is honoring that request.

D70's eLearning Plan
District 70

District 70 created an eLearning Plan to replace Emergency Days through the next three school years, 2020-2023.  

The plan allows District 70 to use eLearning days, instead of Emergency Days (such as Snow Days), so that students can continue to learn remotely.

The state mandates that five emergency days are built into the school calendar to accommodate emergency school closures due to inclement weather or other events beyond our control (flooding, school power outages, etc.).  The emergency days are built into the school calendar at the end of every school year.

The eLearning Plan, approved by the school board and the Regional Office of education, allows students to learn remotely when schools have to be closed and also will allow the school year to end on a set date without being extended to accommodate the built-in emergency days.
