There are several mediums through which Geneva School District will advertise late starts or school closings.
If schools close or a late start implemented, the legal guardians of all students will be notified through use of Geneva School District’s emergency notification system. The system will call the guardian’s primary and mobile phone numbers and send a message to the guardian’s email address, provided that current phone and email information is on file in the District’s student information database.
In addition, school closing and late start notifications will be tweeted to the District’s @Geneva304 Twitter account followers, posted on Geneva School District’s website and emailed to all 304 Connects subscribers. Families may also call the District’s Administrative Offices – (630) 463-3001 – to hear a recorded telephone message concerning school closings and late starts.
This information is also reported to the Emergency Closing Center, which broadcasts the information on the following Chicago stations: WGN-AM (720), WBBM-AM (780), and CBS-TV (2), NBC-TV (5), ABC-TV (7), WGN-TV (9), FOX-TV, and CLTV cable.
Every effort is made to make a decision regarding school closures by 6 a.m. In the event that a late start is utilized, please be aware that there is still a possibility that school will be cancelled if conditions do not improve. Every effort will be made to make this decision by 7 a.m., and parents and students are encouraged to continue to monitor the District’s website and local television/radio stations for updates.
