Jan. 2018: DCPS Revises 2017-2018 School Calendar

Dinwiddie, VA (Jan. 23, 2018)

In an effort to capture instructional time lost to inclement weather, the Dinwiddie School Board has approved the following adjustments for the 2017-2018 school calendar.

  • Monday, January 29 – originally scheduled as a teacher workday will now become a full day for students
  • Monday, February 19 – originally scheduled as President’s Day holiday will now become a full day for students

We will continue to evaluate the necessity to make adjustments should additional inclement weather or emergency days occur this school year. In the event that additional time is needed, the following dates would be considered:

  • Friday, March 30 – scheduled student holiday would become a full day for students
  • Friday, May 25 – scheduled early release day would become a full day for students

The 2017-2018 school calendar has been updated to reflect the changes in makeup days and is available on our calendar page or by clicking here. Please contact Christie Clarke at cclarke@dcpsnet.org or 804-469-4190 with any questions.

Dinwiddie County Public Schools district is committed to providing material on its website that is
accessible to our students, families, staff and general public. If you experience difficulty with the
accessibility of any material on our website, please email webmaster@dcpsnet.org to request
our materials in an alternate format.

We are closely monitoring the weather forecast. Because of the uncertainty of road conditions early tomorrow morning, Dinwiddie County Public Schools will operate on a 2 hour delay Wednesday, February 20 for students and ALL EMPLOYEES. This will allow our team additional time to assess conditions and make changes to our schedule if necessary.
