School Closing Information
The District’s mass notification system will contact all student households when a school must be closed for emergency reasons. School closings will also be posted on the District’s website, www.bsd2.org and the Emergency Closing Center website www.EmergencyClosings.com. In cases of extreme weather or emergency situations, parents/guardians should receive a phone call, email, and/or text message no later than 6 a.m. if their contact information with the school is up to date. Please make certain your proper contact information is on file at your school to ensure you are notified through this system.
Emergency eLearning Days
If possible, remote instruction (an eLearning day) will be scheduled when schools are closed due to severe weather. An eLearning daycounts as a regular school day, and will not require the District to use a built-in emergency day at the end of the school year.
Students in Grades K-8 bring their chromebooks home daily to be prepared for a school closure. Parents/guardians will be notified no later than 6 a.m. if the District is closing its schools and holding an eLearning day. (No announcement means it will be a normal school day.)
Attendance will be taken during eLearning days, and the hours of the school day will be the same. Instead of traveling to school, though, students will join their classes through their teachers’ virtual links, which will be posted on the District website and sent to parents/guardians via email and text message.
