New Policy Effective 2/7/14
"It is the usual policy of TCCS to follow the decisions of Freeport District #145 in regard to school closings, delayed starts, and early dismissals.
However, there may be exceptions when TCCS will make a decision on closing or staying open differing from Freeport District #145. Primarily in situations where Freeport District #145 would need to close school due to extreme temperatures, TCCS may decide to remain open.
In the event of delayed starts and early dismissals, students who ride District #145 buses are able to utilize their regular buses but on an adjusted schedule."
If you have questions concerning procedure during inclement weather, please call our main office.
