Dear Beaubien Bulldog Families,
As you are likely aware, this week’s forecast is calling for severe winter temperatures. It is always the district’s intention to open schools on time in order to minimize disruption to student learning, but for the latest information on potential school cancellations, please follow the district’s social media feeds (Chicago Public Schools Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram) and sign up for emails on the CPS website. In the event school is cancelled, Beaubien social media accounts will also post information as soon as we are able.
An update on the district’s plans will be provided by Tuesday at noon when the district has greater certainty about Wednesday’s anticipated temperatures. If classes are cancelled, all after school programs will also be cancelled. If you are concerned for your family’s safety in these cold temperatures, please contact the school ASAP so we can assist you and your families with shelter, food, water, clothing etc.
A BIG Thank You to our facilities, bus monitor and security team (Mr. DeBartolo, Mrs. Kuszynski and Mrs. Santana) have been hard at work ensuring the safety of our students. They are making sure that the entry ways are clear, that our heating systems are working properly, our bus riders are safe and traffic flows as smooth as possible. If you see them out and working, please thank them for their hard work!
Traffic: We know the road conditions are horrible. Please don’t add to it by double parking and leaving your vehicle. If you are asked to move your vehicle by school staff, please do so promptly without giving them a hard time. Remember to give yourself plenty of time to get to and from school and please be patient.
Recess: We will hold indoor recess any day the weather is below 20 degrees windchill and/or the playground has unsafe conditions.
Stay warm and safe Bulldogs!
