Weather-related School Closure/Delayed Start Information
When assessing weather conditions, our first priority is the safety of our students and staff. Our administrative team reviews weather conditions well in advance and discusses road conditions and safety issues with a team of public works, weather, safety, and transportation experts. In some cases, staff test road conditions as well. We continue to monitor changing weather conditions and make every effort to finalize our decisions regarding weather-related school closures, delayed starts or early releases in a manner that provides families with sufficient time to plan accordingly.
As we prepare for the upcoming winter season, we would like to make you aware of the snow day procedures we have in place in the event of inclement weather.
The D.C. Everest School District allotted two “built in” snow days for the 2023-24 school year. In the event we use both of those days, the third snow day will be made up by having students attend class on May 10, 2024.
If we exceed three snow days, and students cannot attend school in person due to inclement weather, students will learn from home. A summary of these plans is included below. Additional details would be shared by your student(s)’ teacher(s) in the event we exceed three snow days.
If you have any questions that are not answered on this page, please contact your building principal.
Events and Activities
When DCE schools are closed for the day, decisions concerning after-school events and activities (for example, clubs, athletic events, performances, after-school care, Boys & Girls Club) are dependent upon weather conditions. The district will include information about these events when notifying families about the school closure. If the weather improves, some activities or events may be held and parents would be notified. Coaches will reach out to student athletes as needed.
