Who is closed, remote learning

I got on layers and we’ve been in three or four times this morning just to get warm and then come back out and get back at it.” [Justin L. Fowler/The State Journal-Register]

While some some schools decided to go to remote learning, other districts declared Tuesday a snow day with an almost puckish enthusiasm.

“Enjoy your day off tomorrow! This is great binge-watching weather,” Jacksonville school superintendent Steve Ptacek wrote in a social media post Monday.

“Tuesday will be a snow day (No School For Students). Williamsville sledding hills will be open,” countered Williamsville-Sherman superintendent Tip Reedy.

With lingering snow, deteriorating travel conditions and single-digit temperatures, many districts made the decision early Monday to close or go to remote learning on Tuesday. Many school districts were off school Monday for Presidents Day.

Springfield District 186, Ball-Chatham and Rochester districts all opted to go remote Tuesday. The University of Illinois Springfield and Lincoln Land Community College, both for a second straight day, called off in-ground or in-person classes while going remote.
