We all need to work together to ensure children are dressed appropriately for cold weather and that child safety is our first consideration. During the winter, some District 202 custodial and maintenance personnel work around the clock to keep the buildings open. Bus drivers work an extended schedule to provide transportation over roads that at times are less than ideal. Parents suffer inconveniences when transportation is interrupted or when weather conditions are adverse. We will continue to work to make sure that lines of communication are kept open to our students and to our parents in all situations.
