School Closings Information
In the event of a school closing for inclement weather or in case of an emergency, the Donovan School District will utilize the One Call Now automated telephone alert system to contact parents via a phone call or text to inform parents of school closings information as soon as possible.
Listen to WGFA radio (94.1 FM), WVLI radio (92.7 FM or 101.7) or WKAN radio (1320 AM) to announce school closings as they occur.
Parents: Please DO NOT call the school for school closings information.
If you are not receiving One Call Now alerts please contact Mrs. Legan at firstname.lastname@example.org to sign-up for the automated alert system.

It is one of our top priorities to keep you well informed of district schedule changes as well as ensuring we have smooth transportation services on early dissmissal days throughout the school year for students.
To better assist you with this transition, all early dismissals days for students will be color-coded in "YELLOW" on all district website calenders.
Beginning September 11th, we will release students the second Wednesday of each month for staff meetings and professional development purposes.
We appreciate your patience and cooperation as we make this transition in our school calender from previous years.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact the distrcict office at (815) 486-7398.
Attention Parents & Caregivers:

The Elementary school will dismiss at 1:22 and the Jr/Sr high school will dismiss at 1:30 on these days.
