Frigid Temperatures Expected Thursday 2/2nd and Friday 2/3rd
The purpose of this communication is to let you know that we are carefully watching the forecast for the remainder of the week. The current forecast is for very cold mornings around bus pick-up time (and throughout the day). We are looking at temperatures in the single digit range on Thursday morning to sub-zero temperatures on Friday morning. At the moment, the forecast is for dangerously cold wind chills through the day on Friday.
We are taking the necessary precautions to ensure that the school buildings are warm and comfortable, especially on Thursday and Friday. We have communicated with the bus company as well. The bus company is taking cold weather precautions including using a cold weather fuel additive and warming up the busses earlier than usual to prepare for departure. The bus company would like to ask that you please remind students to dress warmly as the heaters on the bus will struggle to keep them warm with these projected temperatures. Also, every time the door opens the temp on the bus will cool down. In the event a breakdown should happen we would obviously redirect the other buses to help with the stops and to get the students off a cold bus as soon as possible.
Please make sure that your children are bundled-up and ready for the frigid temperatures. If possible, try to have them wait for the bus at pick-up time in a warm place such as your vehicle or the vehicle of a trusted friend. Parents could always drive their children directly to school if able.
As a last resort, the superintendent may call for a delayed opening for emergency reasons, such as transportation or building issues. Please stay tuned for a notification if necessary.

I wanted to take a moment to say hello to the Hinsdale community as I begin my role as the interim superintendent. My goals during this interim period are to help the Hinsdale School District continue to move forward and facilitate the transition to the permanent superintendent in July. Superintendent Woolridge and I spent some time over the holiday break before he headed off to a well-deserved retirement. Since then, I have been visiting the schools and saying hello to staff and students as I see them in classrooms, events, or in the hallways. I have had the opportunity to meet with members of the school board and the administrative team. As an educator, I believe it is our responsibility is to provide all children access to a high-quality, developmentally appropriate, safe, compassionate, responsive, and creative learning program. It is our collective responsibility to provide young people with the tools needed to succeed and excel in our global society.
All in all, I think I am getting the lay of the land and beginning to prioritize some immediate tasks. I want to thank the Board for entrusting the district leadership to me as your interim superintendent. I am honored to be a small part of the Hinsdale school community.
