Inclement weather and virtual learning

February 1, 2021

Topic: Updates

In the event of inclement weather where conditions are too dangerous to travel to/from school, in-person students will stay home and engage in learning virtually for the day(s) we experience extreme cold weather or other winter-related conditions. Inclement conditions during travel times include:

  • a forecasted sustained wind chill of -30 degrees Fahrenheit or colder,
  • a forecasted sustained actual temperature -15 degrees Fahrenheit or colder, or
  • snow, ice, or other conditions that may make travel unsafe.

If inclement conditions exist, CCSD21 will make the notification by 5:30 AM the day of the closing. If we are able to make the determination the night before – meaning the forecast undoubtedly warrants virtual learning for all students – we will attempt to notify families between 6:00 PM – 9:30 PM.

Typically, we do not send out a telephone notice after 9:30 PM as the system can sometimes take up to an hour to complete all calls. The District will update its website (ccsd21.org), social media accounts (facebook.com/ccsd21 and @CCSD21), and the Emergency Closing Center website (emergencyclosingcenter.com) as soon as a decision has been made. In the event the decision to close school is made after 9:30 PM, the District will wait and send out the telephone notice by 5:30 AM the following morning.
