School e-learning announcements:

Hononegah has announced:

Due to the predicted freezing rain and dangerous road conditions, Wednesday, February 22nd, will be a weather-related remote learning day for students. All students must check their school email accounts for Google Meet Codes to participate in virtual classes and follow the directions from each of their teachers. Attendance will be taken for their online participation in all classes.

The Village of Roscoe has announced:

Here we go again. National Weather Service is issuing a Winter Weather Advisory to be in effect from 6:00 AM Wednesday through 6:00 AM Thursday. Forecast is for freezing rain with expected ice accumulation up to 1/2". Public Works will be out salting at 5:00 AM in advance of the rains, and will be applying additional salt throughout the duration of the event. PLEASE exercise caution while driving, as conditions will be slippery and we should expect tree damage with branches down from the weight of the ice.

Kinnikinnick has announced:

Due to safety concerns caused by inclement weather, the school buildings will be closed today as well as Kids Care. Students and staff will still have an E-Learning (remote) Instructional Day. Please utilize this link for attendance and assignments or go to our website for more information.
