If Timothy must close for any reason we notify the Chicagoland Emergency Closing Center. If weather threatens a school day, we will try to communicate this decision before students leave home for the bus or school. Timothy parents will also receive a text.
The Emergency Closing Center announcements will be available on their website at www.emergencyclosings.com and the following AM radio stations:
WGN 720, WBBM 780
Also, several local television stations will make the announcements:
WBBM, WMAQ, WLS, WGN, WFLD and CLTV.
You can receive automatic e-mails on any changes in the schedule of our facility by signing up at Emergency Closings Website www.emergencyclosings.com. Click on the “Email Notification” tab at the top of the page and follow the prompts.
Please note: There will no longer be a public phone number to call to check our facility’s status. Changing habits and modernization have rendered that part of the ECC’s service largely obsolete, as email notifications and the website have become preferred methods of ascertaining closing status. The local TV “crawl” and radio station announcements will remain as-is.
In addition to all of the methods above, the website editing staff has made the commitment to announce all school closings on the homepage of our website.
