All three College of Lake County campuses—in Grayslake, Vernon Hills and Waukegan—will be closed Monday due to the weather. 

CLC officials shared this additional notice on the college website: "Since offices will not be open on Monday, the deadline for tuition payments for the Spring 2014 Semester has been extended to midnight, Tuesday, Jan. 7, and the drop for nonpayment will occur on Wednesday, Jan. 8. Students will therefore have one additional day to pay in full or set up an installment payment plan, which can both be done through the college's online payment page."


UPDATE, 2:10 p.m.: The Dance Academy of Libertyville and St. John Lutheran School will both be closed Monday due to the weather. We will share additional closures as they become available.
