The Worst Is Past, But This Week's Frigid Temps Still Causing Closures

Jan 31, 2019

We've survived the record-low temperatures and brutal windchills this week -- but the aftershocks are still being felt in northern Illinois. While most schools and businesses have returned to their normal schedules, DeKalb Public Schools are closed again.  That's because their transportation provider informed the district that many of their buses won't start, so they can't transport kids to school. Problems with diesel engines kept NIU closed an additional day because the Huskie Bus Lines couldn't run. That service resumes Friday morning at 7:00. 


Northern Illinois University: open. The Huskie Bus line resumes service Friday at 7 a.m.

DeKalb Public Schools: closed Friday because of continuing issues with school buses. Schools reopen Monday

Dixon Schools: closed Friday
