For the fourth time this month, Hinsdale-area public school students will get an unanticipated off day.

District 181 and District 86 schools will be closed for the second straight day Tuesday due to the extremely cold weather, according to announcements from both districts sent out Monday.

"Due to the continuing dangerous weather conditions, District 86 will not be in session tomorrow, Tuesday, January 28," a statement from District 86 superintendent Bruce Law reads. "In addition, all district and school buildings will be closed. No transportation, before or after school activities or facility rentals will be available.

"The decision to close Hinsdale Central and Hinsdale South high schools has been coordinated with the superintendents in our local feeder districts to ease the scheduling for families."

District 181 superintendent Renée Schuster alerted the community with an emailed statement of her own. 

A National Weather Service wind chill warning for Cook and DuPage counties is in effect until 9 a.m. Wednesday. Tuesday's forecasted high is 0, and wind chill values are expected to drop as low as -39.

Both districts closed schools for the weather on Monday. Jan. 6 and Jan. 7 were also weather-related off-days.
