School Closing Information

  • Parents will ONLY receive notice if schools are starting late, dismissing early or closed, otherwise the day will proceed as usual. Please recognize that no system is foolproof; a power outage or extreme demand on these systems could affect access to communications technologies.

    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 Document Library 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
  • School closures and late starts will be announced by 5:45 AM on:
    1. the home page of this website
    2. through the District’s Talk203 notification system (encompassing email, SMS and telephone calls)
