LHS students rejoiced last night as they received the phone call from principal Dr. Marina Scott, which called off school for today, Jan. 7.

District 128 communications director, Ms. Mary Todoric, cited a concern for student safety as the main reason for closing both the LHS and Vernon Hills High School doors.

“The safety of our students and staff is always our number one concern,” stated Ms. Todoric. “This would include dangerous temperatures, ice, snow, and the ability of our bus company to safely operate its buses.”

According to Ms. Todoric, D128 Superintendent, Dr. Prentiss Lea, and other district administrators all kept their eyes on the weather forecast last night. By about 6:15 p.m., the decision was made: there would be no school.

The decision came slightly after District 70, the Libertyville Elementary School District, and other D128 feeder schools called off school. According to Ms. Todoric, whether or not the feeder schools are open plays a role in deciding LHS’s fate.

Since school is cancelled and finals are knocking on the door, there is hope from the school that students will use their extra day wisely.

“With finals on the horizon, today’s ‘cold day’ gives students the opportunity to continue reviewing for their tests. We hope they take advantage of this unexpected extra time,” said Ms. Todoric.
