Emergency Closing Information

If District 214 closes school for the day:

  • Community Education will not hold morning/afternoon classes at District 214 buildings. Daytime emergency closing information can be found on the district website.  We will wait until the afternoon District 214 announcement re: evening activities.     
  • If after-school activities are continued at the schools in the afternoon/evening, Community Ed classes at District 214 buildings will take place normally.        
  • If after-school activities are cancelled at the schools in the evening, Community Ed will also cancel evening classes at District 214 buildings to protect the safety of our students and teachers.
  • If District 214 does not close school for the day but the forecast for the evening is foreboding and the weather turns bad in the late afternoon, Community Education may cancel evening classes held at District 214 buildings for the safety of our students and teachers. The closing decision will be made by 3 p.m. A closing announcement will be posted on this page.
