School Closings, Emergency Notifications
Caution

District 70 takes closing schools seriously. When the decision is made due to inclement weather or power outages in schools, District 70 uses an emergency notification system to deliver phone calls and emails about school closings or safety emergencies.

For more information about school closings, please read the FAQ.

 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 will not be activated for 48-hours from when you opt-in.) This text (SMS) service only will be used in the event of school closings or a school emergency.

School Board Meeting Time Change
Announcement Photo

During an August board meeting, the Libertyville District 70 School Board voted to change the start time of its regular monthly board meetings to 7 p.m. on the fourth Monday of the month. The Board also voted to discontinue the practice of engaging in a Committee of the Whole (COW) meeting on the same evening immediately prior to each regularly scheduled board of education meeting. COW meetings are open to the public and provide the school board with an opportunity to discuss, but not act upon, matters pertaining to the district. 

 

In the spirit of continuous improvement and transparency, the District 70 School Board will now hold conversations that have historically occurred in the COW meeting during regular board meetings.  

 

Information on the District 70 website has been revised to reflect this change.

STOP! For School Buses
Announcement Photo

Our District 70 school buses are on the road. Please obey the law. 

In Illinois, all lanes of traffic in both directions must stop when a school bus is stopped to pick up or drop off kids while traveling along a two-lane road. This also applies to one-way streets no matter how many lanes of traffic.

On a four-lane road with at least two lanes moving in the opposite direction, only motorists going in the same direction as the bus are required to stop
