Snow Days Extend Our School Year

March 31, 2015


DCPS Parents and Families,

Due to the snow days we have accumulated this year, there is a need to make up two days in the academic calendar. Therefore the following changes will take place:

 Monday, May 18, which was a parent/teacher conference day is now a full instructional day for students. Principals will work with teachers, students and families to find alternative ways to discuss a student’s progress and status as needed and/or requested.

 Thursday, June 18, which was a half-day for students, will now be a full instructional day.

 Friday, June 19 will now be a half-day for students and will be the last day of school.


We hope this advance notice provides enough time for families to make any necessary adjustments. And let’s hope Mother Nature doesn’t provide any more weather surprises in April. Have a great rest of the school year.
