As we shared, we have outlined our snow day policy for the 2020-21 school year. Please be sure to review those updates here.
We wanted to share further guidance for those in the Central Office. Please know that if we have a single snow day, Central Office team members will join school-based employees in a traditional snow day and are not expected to work remotely that day. Operational team members who have responsibilities for snow clearance or building support, as well as those who have been notified that they are required personnel, should please continue their work responsibilities per their departmental snow-day guidance.
If there is an extended stretch of severe weather during the week and we are not able to safely allow students to attend in-person school for multiple days, then Central Office teams will mirror our school-based staff in working remotely, starting with the second day of building closures.
As a reminder, during any weather closure (whether a remote day or full closure), all DPS buildings will be closed to students and staff.
We are continuing to watch the forecast for the winter weather approaching this weekend, and we will share updates about any snow days as soon as we’re able. In preparation for the potential severe weather, please advise team members who are working at a DPS building to prepare for the possibility of working remotely in the coming days.
Please share this information with your team, and work with your supervisor if you have any questions.
Thank you for your continued support and flexibility -- and we hope you stay safe and warm this weekend!
