School Closure Alerts and Transportation

Did you know that there are various means of communication when it comes to school closures and late-start days? Local news sources, such as KSTP, KARE 11, WCCO, KMSP – Fox 9, and others offer services to alert subscribers of school closures via mobile apps, emails, texts, and more. Subscribers are also able to sign up for alerts for more than one district, which is important information for families of students who reside in other school districts than Rockford. 

Transportation plays a key factor for these families who are provided transportation through Northwest Suburban Integration School District (NWSISD).

  • If the student’s resident district is closed and the serving district is open, NWSISD will not provide transportation to or from school. If families elect to bring their student to school that day they will also be responsible for transportation home. 
  • If the student’s serving district or magnet school is closed, NWSISD will not provide transportation to the school or any other location on that day.
