Preschool Parents: Weather Cancelation Notice
Following the recent snowstorm, the Douglas County School District (DCSD) has reviewed its preschool cancelation policies and is making a change to clarify and simplify the process for our youngest learners and their families.
While 90-minute delays are rare, they do happen. Their impact is felt by:
- Increased risk for our youngest learners who are transported to school by the district or their families
- A significant decrease in instructional time for students
- A historically low attendance rate in A.M. classes
As a result, starting today, February 25, DCSD will cancel morning preschool programs, when District schools are placed on a 90-minute delay (except for the ECC-S full day program, which will follow a 90-minute delay). If the delay is not District-wide, only preschool sessions in the affected region(s) will be canceled.
As always, when the District decides to close schools, morning, afternoon and full-day sessions will be canceled, again, in the impacted region(s).
Notices about District delays and closures are available on DCSD's website at www.dcsdk12.org, its mobile app and social media channels.
