School Closing Information

It is sometimes necessary to close Religious Education events due to an emergency. Inclement weather is usually the major cause of program closings; however, other emergencies such as power failures, heating problems, or water problems could occur at any time necessitating the closing of such events.


The primary and official source reporting closings is found at the Emergency Closing Center website sponsored by the Chicago Tribune. Click the text in blue or the following graphic to be taken to the site.
