Jan. 2018: DCPS Will Not Schedule Make-Up Days

Dinwiddie, VA (Jan. 12, 2018)

Dinwiddie County Public Schools (DCPS) has announced that it will not schedule any make-up days for those missed on January 4, 5, 8, and 9. When planning program needs for students, the calendar committee considers many variables to include inclement weather; therefore, additional time is built into the daily schedule to allow for unexpected school closures.  Currently, DCPS exceeds the required minimum of 990 instructional hours per year at all levels.

At this time, there will be no changes to the adopted 2017-18 calendar; however, division leaders will continue to evaluate the necessity to make adjustments should additional inclement weather or emergency days occur this school year.

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.
