Frigid Forecast Could Delay Students' Return to Valley View Schools

Valley View School District officials are considering a move to keep schools closed on Monday, Jan. 6, because temperatures are expected to be well below zero and there is a fear for safety of students standing out at bus stops.

An ice-cold forecast could delay the resumption of classes in the Valley View School District.

The district—using its Parent Link email notification system—sent a message to parents in Bolingbrook and Romeoville today. The message reads like this:

"Hello, this is the Valley View Public School system, with an important message concerning possible extreme weather. Due to the temperatures projected to be at -14 degrees with a wind chill of -31 on Monday, Jan. 6, schools may be closed. A final decision and notification is forthcoming Sunday, Jan. 5, at around 8 p.m."

Keep tabs on school closings here on Patch or check the Valley View School District website. Students in the district were scheduled to remain on winter break through the end of this week.
