Inclement weather in the early morning hours during the winter months can often lead to decisions of closing school for the entire day due to unsafe travel over the roads. However, two hours later, the sun has come out, the roads have been cleared and salted and travel is much safer…..and learning could be taking place in our classrooms. As a result of this scenario, the Lisle administration and Board of Education solicited the opinions of our school community via the web site regarding the idea of implementing a delayed start to the school day, due to inclement weather.
So, to honor the majority of responses in favor of implementing a delayed start to the school day, as well as provide learning opportunities for our students, the District has created a delayed start schedule where buses will arrive at the current pick-up points two hours later than their regularly-scheduled time. Those students who walk or drive to school should not arrive prior to the drop off times listed below. In the event a delayed start schedule is utilized, class periods will be shortened but dismissal times will NOT change. Please visit our web site at www.lisle202.org for specific information. Aramark, our food service provider, will continue to serve meals as usual.
This delayed schedule will be piloted for the 2010/2011 school year. Our normal school closing policy will continue to be in effect.
If a delayed start schedule is activated:
- Schools will begin exactly two hours later than usual
- All busses will operate exactly two hours later than usual.
- Parent drop off time will be two hours later than usual
Delayed Start Schedules are as follows:
