With fall arriving in force Tuesday, winter snow can't be too far off (insert frowning emoticon here), so Batavia School Superintendent Lisa Hichens has sent out a note to parents announcing six ways you to find out about school closings.

You can always check Batavia Patch, of course, and for heaven's sake, make sure to sign up for breaking news alerts, if you haven't done so already.

But in addition to that you can check any of the following sources for school closing information:

1. BPS Messenger, Emergency Advisories: (sign up at www.bps101.net/messenger to have e-mail notification sent directly to you).

2. BATV, Batavia Channel 10: School Closing Information will be displayed on the information scroll.

3. Twitter Text: follow BPS101

4. Emergency Closing Center-Broadcasts
  • WGN AM 720
  • WFLD TV Ch 32
  • CLTV News Cable
  • WBBM AM 780
  • WMAQ TV Ch 5
  • CBS TV Ch 2
  • WGN TV Ch 9
  • ABC TV Ch 7

5. Call the BPS101 Emergency Advisory Line at 630-937-8899

6. www.bps101.net — A notice will be posted on the district’s main page. No system of notification is foolproof. Radio and television notices are not always broadcasted properly, Internet accessible pages are not always available and telephone communications may not always be possible.

Another good idea is to simply bookmark this article, which has all of the sources in one, easy-to-find location.

"We do use multiple communication tools to provide accurate and timely information. To make sure you receive the correct information you are encouraged to access important school closing notifications from more than one of these sources," Hichens said.
