Power outage at Kilmer, Tarkington - Feb. 11

February 11, 2019

Topic: Updates

Edited Feb. 11 at 11:26 AM – Both Tarkington and Kilmer operated on generator power during this outage. Full power was restored at both schools around 11:25 AM.

Because of utility work in the community, power is currently (10:25 AM) down at both Kilmer and Tarkington Elementary Schools. Schools are currently operating on emergency back-up power. Generators are en route to the schools and we expect power to be restored shortly.

Phone lines at both schools, however, are currently down because of the outage. Please contact the CCSD21 Administration Center (847-537-8270) with any messages and we will relay the information to the appropriate school.
