When the forecast of snow happens, we wanted to share the procedures for decisions regarding emergency notifications.

The DuPage County Superintendents have conference calls regularly during the evening and early morning when the conditions are expected to impact safe travel to/from school. These conversations, along with input from Wood Dale 7 and Bensenville 2 Superintendents, will contribute to the decision to close school or institute a late-start plan. The decision will be made prior to 5:30am and will be shared with parents, staff and community at that time.

The procedures for keeping our Fenton family informed is through the following:

  • phone calls to numbers supplied for families and staff. This message will be sent in English, Spanish and Polish.
  • email messages. This includes parent, student and staff email.
  • posting on the website homepage,
