Winter Weather Closing Guidelines


The only time the ARC will be closed due to winter weather conditions is when:

  • Wind chills are -25°F or below.

  • Jo Daviess County Sheriff's Department has advised no travel.

This is for the safety of the children and the Galena ARC staff.


Closing notifications:

  • We will post it on our website under Featured News.

  • Updates will be made to our office answering machine.

  • Announced on local radio stations.

  • Text message will be sent to all childcare program families


All cancellations will be made before 6:00 a.m.
