Crisis Information- Información de Crisis

Due to a change in the Federal Communications Commission regulations, District 54 needs to receive parent permission to call your phones when school will be closed. You will not receive a phone call when we are closed due to weather, unless you follow the steps outlined in the attached letter from District 54 Community Relations Director Terri McHugh. The steps outline how you can subscribe to text messaging and also how you can use the SchoolMessenger InfoCenter app or website to give permission for us to call you in a weather-related closing. Regardless of the choice you make, we are still able to call all parents and emergency contacts in emergency situations, such as a hard lockdown.

I am also attaching a letter outlining the drills that we do with students to prepare for crisis situations. Please take a minute to read through that letter as we will begin drills shortly after students return to school.

Información de Crisis

Debido a un cambio en las regulaciones de la Comisión Federal de Comunicaciones, el Distrito 54 necesita recibir permiso de los padres en  la eventualidad  de cierre.  Usted NO recibirá una llamada en la eventualidad de cierre por causa de mal tiempo  a menos que usted siga los pasos  listados en la carta adjunta que remite  La Sra. Terri McHugh, Directora de Relaciones Comunitarias del Distrito 54. Los pasos describen cómo usted puede suscribirse a mensajes de texto y también cómo puede utilizar la aplicación “School Messenger Info Center” o su sitio web para dar permiso para que le llamemos en la eventualidad de un cierre relacionado con el clima. Independientemente de la elección que usted  haga, seremos  capaces de llamar a todos los padres y contactos de emergencia en situaciones de emergencia, como por ejemplo un bloqueo  fuerte “Hard lockdown”.

Adjunto también una carta  que lista los ejercicios que realizamos con los estudiantes  para prepararles   en la eventualidad de situaciones de crisis. Por favor tome un minuto para leer esa carta  ya que empezaremos los ejercicios un poco después de que los estudiantes regresen a la escuela.
