Inclement Weather Procedure

As we approach the winter season, we may experience inclement weather that could possibly cause our facilities and programs to open late, close early, or to be cancelled.  Our primary concern is for the safety of our participants, parents and patrons.

The following procedures will be followed if this becomes necessary:

  1. If classes in School District 54 are cancelled for the entire day to inclement weather, all programs at Triphahn Center will be cancelled until 1pm.  Decisions on classes between 1-6pm will be made by Noon and decisions held after 6pm will be made by 4pm.  Part-Day Preschool (AM & PM classes) is cancelled when District 54 is cancelled.  Early Learning & Care (ELC) full-day preschool is not cancelled due to inclement weather if the Triphahn Center is open.
  2. If classes in School District 15 are cancelled for the entire day to inclement weather, all programs at Willow Recreation Center will be cancelled until 1pm.  Decisions on classes between 1-6pm will be made by Noon and decisions held after 6pm will be made by 4pm. WRC Part-Day Preschool (AM & PM classes) is cancelled when District 15 is cancelled.
  3. If classes in School District U-46 are cancelled for the entire day to inclement weather, all youth programs at The Club at Prairie Stone & Timber Trails School will be cancelled until 1pm.  Decisions on classes between 1-6pm will be made by Noon and decisions held after 6pm will be made by 4pm.
  4. The STAR before & after school program will be cancelled for the entire day when the school districts are closed.  Willow STAR follows School District 15 severe weather days.  Lakeview, Fairview, MacArthur, Armstrong, Muir and Lincoln Prairie STAR sites follow School District 54 severe weather days.
  5. Harper Continuing Education classes held at HE Parks facilities will be cancelled when the Harper campus is closed due to inclement weather.
  6. Facilities will remain open unless snow accumulation has prevented Parks Maintenance from clearing the parking lot and walkways to the facilities.
  7. Notification will be made on HE Parks website and on HE Parks Facebook & Twitter accounts.
  8. Updates will also be made on our Weather Hotline (847-285-5508)

Rescheduling / Cancellation Policy

Every effort will be made to reschedule the program cancelled due to inclement weather. If a make-up class is not possible, participants will receive a refund for the class(es) missed.  Refund will be processed as a credit on their household.
