Wesley Child Care Center follows Northfield District 29’s policy & decisions for school closings due to extreme weather conditions. The school district's decision is based on weather reports and road conditions which may impact the safety of children and staff. We recognize that everyone looks at weather related closures through their own personal lens, and there may be times that you may not always agree with the district's decision. Please know that any decision will be made with the safety of the students as the top priority (visit www.sunsetridge29.net
for specifics as to their policy).
When a decision is made to close District 29 schools,
Wesley’s District 29 After School Program will also beCLOSED.
If extreme weather conditions necessitate closing Wesley's programs during a time in which District 29 schools are closed for holidays, in-service or are not in session; Wesley’s Executive Director & administrative team will follow the same procedure and notify Wesley personnel so families may be notified accordingly.
Whenever extreme weather conditions exist, Wesley personnel and families should tune into the Emergency Closing Center via Chicago radio, TV and ECC website for updated school closing information (Please visit www.emergencyclosings.com
). Remember watch closely for your specific Wesley program as we serve multiple districts.
If weather conditions deteriorate during the school day and District 29 makes the decision to close early due to extreme weather conditions, the Wesley directors will evaluate the situation and determine a plan that will provide for the safety of the children in the Wesley school age and preschool programs. Deteriorating weather conditions may mean that the preschool site and school age programs will close early. Families may be notified for early pick up.
Mechanical issues such as power, boiler or water system breakdowns may necessitate closing only the affected Wesley child care facility. If the breakdown occurs at our main site, 727 Harlem, the notification procedure will be followed for that facility only. If an individual school in District 29 must close due to a breakdown, there will be no school age programming at the impacted site.
Please Note: There are no reductions in fees in the event of an emergency closing.
