SPS will be on a 2-hour delayed start tomorrow - Wednesday, January 26, 2022. This means all schools will start two hours later than normal and all bus routes will be running two hours later than normal, as well. This decision is based on the National Weather Service’s announcement today of a Hazardous Weather Outlook and a Wind Chill Advisory, both for Serling, IL. According to these two special weather announcements, there will be “dangerously cold wind chills that are expected to reach 25 to 30 below zero and could result in frostbite on exposed skin in as little as 30 minutes.” Due to this 2-hour late start schedule, there will be no AM PreK Program classes at Franklin Elem. or Jefferson Elem. There will, however, be breakfast served at all the schools tomorrow morning two hours later than normal.

Dear Parents/Guardians, At approximately 10:00 AM this morning, Sterling Public Schools was notified by the Sterling Police Department that there was some suspicious activity in the community and, while investigating, they requested we implement our crisis plan and limit access in and out of our buildings. We obliged and immediately went into temporary lockdown. All students and staff were safe and secure during the lockdown. Following notification from the Sterling Police Department, we released our lockdown at approximately 10:15 AM due to the determination there was no longer a threat.
