Sycamore closes schools due to road closures
SHS students were called out of school on Mon., Feb. 5 due to the president’s visit to the business Sheffer Corporation, which is located down the road from the school.
All of the schools in the district were closed due to the unpredictability of road closures. While students were told not to come to school, staff members were still expected to report at normal start times.
Local authorities warned that the Secret Service and local authorities would begin setting up soft road closures in the surrounding area, particularly Cornell Road, in the morning, switching to hard lockdowns in the early afternoon.
Due to these road closures, travel on Cornell was limited, forcing those invited to go to the event to travel on shuttles that ran from the Church of the Latter Day Saints to Sheffer Corporation.
