(And it’s also the time to think about childcare plans.) A late start or school closing announcement is made by 5:45 AM via the following channels:
 

• Information is first posted on the District's website at www.elmhurst205.org

• Talk205 phone calls, e-mail and SMS messages are sent out.

• A message is recorded on the District 205 Center’s main telephone line at (630) 834-4530.

• Notification is sent to the Emergency Closing Center, which broadcasts such information on WGN-AM (720), WBBM-AM (780), and CBS-TV (2), NBC-TV (5), ABC-TV (7), WGN-TV (9), FOX-TV, and CLTV cable. Visit the .web site at http://www.emergencyclosingcenter.com
