Dear CPS Families and Friends,
The safety of our students is the district’s highest priority, and due to inclement weather forecast for this week, CPS will take the following action:
Tuesday, January 29, 2019: After-school activities including sports competitions will be canceled due to falling temperatures expected in the afternoon.
Wednesday, January 30, 2019: All CPS classes will be canceled and school buildings will be closed due to anticipated temperatures. District and network offices will be open.
All students are encouraged to remain indoors for their safety.
While school buildings will be closed Wednesday, the Chicago Park District has designated fieldhouses throughout as warming centers to help families stay warm through this cold spell.
To ensure students do not miss out on valuable instruction, a student instructional day will be added to the CPS calendar for Wednesday, June 19, pending approval from the Chicago Board of Education.
Thursday, January 31, 2019: The district will provide an update to families by noon Wednesday regarding the status of school opening.
For the latest updates, please visit the CPS website, or follow Chicago Public Schools Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Recorded updates will also be available by phone at (773) 553-1000.
Please share this message with your friends and family who have children in CPS schools.
