Students must be fever-free for 24 hours before returning to school. Students with nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea must be symptom-free for 24 hours before returning to school.

Report an Absence


Emergency Closing

In the event of an emergency requiring the school to close, School Administration will notify school parents via the following communication:  

  • An e-mail message will be sent through School Messenger (the system we send the Crusader Chronicle through)
  • A text message will be sent.
  • A notice will be placed on the school website and on the school's Facebook Page.
  • In addition, you may check the Emergency Closings Link to see all reported school closings. 

Note the school considers many factors before choosing to close due to weather and will generally align with Lake Forest & Lake Bluff public school's decision.
