Please read Lincolnwood School District 74's Emergency Closing Information regarding emergency closing procedures.
In our efforts to improve communications between parents and school, we are now using a system called Alert Solutions News, which enables school administration to notify all households and parents by phone within minutes of an emergency or unplanned event that causes early dismissal, school cancellation or late start. The service may also be used from time-to-time to communicate general announcements or reminders. This works through our Student Information System, PowerSchool.
If you find that you are not being reached successfully through our phone broadcasting system, please contact your school office:
- Lincolnwood School District 74: 847-675-8234
- Lincoln Hall Middle School: 847-675-8240
- Rutledge Hall School: 847-675-8236
- Todd Hall School: 847-675-8235
The District will continue to report school closings due to snow or weather through traditional methods as detailed below and will use Alert Solutions News as an overlay to the public announcements.
