Any student who receives transportation through Naperville School District 203, including those who attend parochial schools and out-of-district facilities, will not be transported in the event that school is closed. In such cases, students will receive an excused absence, so there is no obligation for parents to transport their students to school that day.
Please note that to receive an SMS (mobile text) message, you must specifically provide your SMS number for your student records. District 203 does not assume that cell phone numbers are authorized to receive text messages. See the Campus Portal Help FAQ page for information on ways to provide an SMS number using your parent account on the Infinite Campus Portal.
School closures and late starts are 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.
Families may also call the District Administrative Offices at (630) 420-6300 to hear a recorded telephone message concerning a school closing or late start.
Naperville School District 203 will continue to run a late start schedule for all schools on severe weather days. The late start schedule provides the flexibility to begin school two hours later than normal, allowing time for roads to be cleared and temperatures to rise. This alternative eliminates a situation where severe weather in the early morning leads to a decision to close schools for an entire day when it is not warranted.
On late start schedule days, District buses will arrive at the scheduled pick-up points two hours later than their regularly-scheduled time. Students who walk or drive to school should arrive at (not prior to) the times listed below. In the event a late start schedule is utilized, class periods will be shortened to accommodate a shorter day but dismissal times will not change. Aramark, our food service provider, will continue to serve meals as usual.
On late start days, parents and staff are encouraged to continue to monitor this website for updates on the status of after-school activities. Information will be posted no later than 2 PM.
