School Delay/Closing Information
Decisions made regarding weather are always difficult when determining delays, eLearning or closings, but these guidelines will serve as a reference for the School Town of Munster. School Town of Munster (STM) believes the public expects schools to be open and to provide education, supervision and other services to its students. STM believes all parents are committed to keeping children safe and that parents will dress their children appropriately for the weather when sending the children to school. STM recognizes that it’s first and foremost a parental decision to determine if a child should attend school on inclement weather days.
Announcements will be sent no later than 6:30 a.m. if we are delaying, eLearning or closing.
Following a delay, it will be announced no later than 8:30 a.m. if we will shift to eLearning or closing for the day.
Once the decision is made to change the school district’s regular operating schedule, that information will be communicated through a variety of ways:
- The District website – www.munster.us
- The District Facebook Page - https://www.facebook.com/SchoolTownofMunster
- SchoolMessenger message to parents and faculty/staff, which delivers messages to the email addresses and cell phone numbers according to each user’s individual preferences in PowerSchool
- The WGN Radio Emergency Closing Center Network - www.emergencyclosingcenter.com
