There are procedures in place to close Freeburg CCSD #70 due to inclement weather. This decision will be based on ensuring every student arrives to and leaves from school safely regardless of the mode of transportation. Every effort will be made to make the decision as early as possible.
The district will also post any weather closings on its Twitter page, which you can follow @Freeburg70, and our Facebook page . TeacherEase will be used to send emails, Teacherease APP notificationcs, text messages, and voice messages to let each family know of the cancellation of school. The caller ID displayed should be (844) 471-2228 named Freeburg CCSD 70 / Freeburg Primary / FreeburgElemntry depending on how the message is sent.
When sending text and voice messages, Teacherease uses an algorithm to stop the notification as soon as the recipient interacts with one of the messages. For instance, if the recipient receives an email with an app notification and does not open either, then SchoolInsight will send a text message. Likewise, if they do not click on the link to read the body of the message, a phone call with a voice message will be sent out. On the other hand, if they have read and interacted with the text message, they would not also receive a phone call.
Please do not call the school or administrators' home numbers for school closing information. We want to ensure phone lines remain open to coordinate the decision-making process and/or emergency communications. The best way to receive information is checking the district website or by tuning into the radio and television stations noted above.
