Dear School Community Member:

Good morning. I hope this note finds you well and enjoying the more seasonable weather. This is my favorite time of year to be working as an educator. The warmer weather, spring sports and the excitement surrounding promotions, graduations and proms keeps spirits high and students engaged.

As most of you are aware, our district calendar includes three (3) emergency closing days for inclement weather. This year, due to the mild winter weather, we only used one (1) "snow day" in February. According to our BOE approved district calendar, all unused emergency closing days are to be returned around Memorial Day weekend (Note: This is a contractual requirement). As a result, all Park Ridge Public Schools will be closed on Friday, May 24th and Tuesday, May 28th.

A copy of the updated 2023 - 24 school calendar can be found at this link:

All the best to you and your family for a smooth and successful end to the school year.


Robert M. Gamper, Ed.D.

Superintendent of Schools
