A couple of times ago, the Chicago Public Schools were pretty much to last to announce they were closing because of the weather.
Today, they were the first I saw.
McHenry County Schools seem to have followed suit.
I checked with
- Alden-Hebron High School District 19
- Harvard Unit District 50
- Hebron High School District Marengo High School 154
- Crystal Lake High School District 155
- McHenry High School District 156
- Huntley Unit District 158
- Richmond-Burton High School District 157
- Woodstock Unit District 200
- Algonquin Unit District 300
All are closing on Thursday due to “inclement weather,” as District 300’s web site says.
The grade school districts feeding each of the high schools above that I checked were also shutting their doors.
