National School of Character AwardState School of Character Award




Dear Parent or Guardian,

Winter has arrived. With weather reports predicting snow and extremely cold temperatures, I wanted to take this opportunity to issue a reminder regarding school cancellation procedures.


In addition to closing school for the entire day, this year we will also consider delaying school by two hours using our 10 a.m. late-start schedule. This option will give us the flexibility to minimize disruption by retaining the current school calendar. If the 10 a.m. start-time option is used, all busing, arrival and dismissal times will follow the regular, 10 a.m. start schedule.


In the event of any late-start or closing needed to keep students and staff safe, you will be notified by District email. You will also be able to check up-to-date closing status via the following means:

·         District website,

·         Twitter, follow the District @HinsdaleD86

·         Emergency Closing Center website,


As you may remember, the school calendar adopted by the Board of Education allowed for the use of scheduled holidays and other non-attendance days as make-up days to recover instructional time. If schools close due to severe weather, the plan for converting non-instructional days to school days will be announced as quickly as possible.


We understand that any changes or closures disrupt our families’ schedules. We appreciate your understanding and support in keeping student safety our top priority.



Dr. Bruce Law

Superintendent of Schools
