Emergency School Closings
On rare occasions, it becomes necessary to close school or delay the start of school because of weather or other emergencies. The decision is made by the Superintendent, with the safety of students and employees as the main consideration. The administration, Board of Education, and PTOs of Deerfield High School and Highland Park High School have set up procedures and channels of communication to assist you in the event of emergency school closings.
What to do in case of a potential emergency closing:
Your best source is to log onto the School District’s Web page at www.dist113.org
The district will communicate via Infinite Campus for any emergency-related late starts or closings.
Each school’s main phone number will also have updated recordings in case of school closings.
- District Office: 224-765-1000
- Deerfield High School: 224-632-3000
- Highland Park High School: 224-765-2000
Please do not telephone the radio station or local police departments for school closing information.
