School Closings

In cases of bad weather or dangerous road conditions, school closings or early dismissals will be announced in the local media. In addition to GHTV, the following radio and television stations are useful to inform parents of such closings as quickly and in as wide an area as possible.

Radio Television
WMAQ 670 AM CBS Channel 2
WGN 720 AM WMAQ Channel 5
WBBM 780 AM WLS Channel 7
WLS 890 AM WGN Channel 9
WKKD 1580 AM / 95.9 FM FOX Channel 32

Other stations may also broadcast school closings. It is at the discretion of each station whether or not it airs any notifications and when.

Alternate Notification Methods

Most school districts will attempt to notify parents of school closings through automated telephone notifications. Please contact your child's school for more information.

Additionally, Nexstar Media Group's WGN Radio operates the Emergency Closing Center website, a free resource which quickly provides the status of Chicagoland area schools, daycare centers, and more, including those in Glendale Heights.
