Winter Storm 12-22-2022  Early Dismissal Notification

December 21, 2022

Topic: Updates

For the last several days we have been working closely with the National Weather Service tracking Thursday’s predicted winter storm. Each day the timing of when the storm is likely to produce difficult travel conditions has trended earlier and is now projected to worsen mid-afternoon. 

As a result of those projections, CCSD 21 will have an early dismissal on Thursday, December 22, 2022.  All CCSD 21 Middle Schools will dismiss students at 1:00 p.m. followed by all CCSD 21 Elementary Schools at 1:45 p.m. 

All Afternoon Preschool classes are canceled on Thursday, December 22, 2022. 

After school care programs will remain open tomorrow. 

In times of inclement weather, Illinois School Code and District policy allows parents to call their student(s) out for an excused absence if you have concerns about your child safely traveling to or from school.

We will continue to closely monitor the path of this storm and if conditions warrant a full school closure, that decision will be made by 5:30 a.m. on Thursday and communicated through our ParentSquare notification system, on the district website, and through district social media.
