Managers of Burlington Stores present a $10,000 check to Mrs. Wilson & Mrs. Houlihan

Burlington Stores Inc., through its partnership with AdoptAClassroom.org, donated $10,000 to Eisenhower Junior High School in celebration of its new store on Roselle Road in Hoffman Estates.

Tom Floore, Burlington’s Regional Vice President, along with Dan Hoss, manager of the Hoffman Estates store, presented the check to Eisenhower Principal Heather Wilson and Assistant Principal Amy Houlihan during an assembly at the school on Oct. 27.

“On behalf of the students and staff at Eisenhower Junior High, I would like to thank Burlington and AdoptAClassroom.org for this generous donation,” Wilson said.

The donation will provide staff members with funding for classroom materials that directly impact the more than 600 students at Eisenhower.

“This is a way our community is here to help support your success,” Wilson told the students.

Notification & Procedures for School Closings (& Weather Warnings)

School Cancellation Notification

Last year the Federal Communications Commission had changed its regulations and would no longer allow us to call home when school was closed for weather unless given permission. We sent instructions about logging in to the School Messenger Notification System’s InfoCenter to update your phone permissions. Well the FCC regulations have changed once again.

Under the revised regulations, the FCC recognizes a weather-related closing (such as a snow day) as an emergency. Therefore, District 54 will once again be calling parents and staff members if we were to close for a snow day. We have reset the SchoolMessenger settings to make this the default setting. If you do not wish to receive a call, please login to SchoolMessenger’s InfoCenter by following the instructions at http://sd54.org/schoolcancellations and update your preferences.

District 54’s procedure during a Wind Chill Warning and Wind Chill Advisory

A warning is typically issued by the National Weather Service when the wind chill will be -30 degrees Fahrenheit or colder OR the actual air temperature is -15 degrees Fahrenheit. When a warning is issued, classes and extracurricular activities will be cancelled. During a wind chill advisory, we will have class, but students will be kept inside for recess, PE, etc.

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.
