We have been watching the forecast and will be closing ALL Hampshire Township Park District buildings on Wednesday due to the severe weather. With the wind chill temperatures estimated to be -55 to -60 in the area, frostbite can occur in less than 5 minutes. For the safety of the children and staff, Little People Playtime will NOT be open for Day Care or Preschool on Wednesday January 30th.
This decision was not made lightly, as we have kept our doors open through several weather-related events over the past 5 years of operations. We do feel though that this is an extreme circumstance and are always concerned about the safety of our littlest park district participants. Parents of LPP program participants, please check your email for more information regarding the Day Care closing.
The wind chill advisory extends until Noon on Thursday, January 31st.
At this time we are intending on re-opening all facilities, including Day Care, the morning of Thursday, January 31st, but will notify parents as soon as possible if this changes and we have to remain closed another day due to the weather. If District 300 schools are closed there will be no Before or After School Care or Sports practices, or if there is delayed start on Thursday, there will not be Before School Care available.
Stay safe and warm!
