Inclement Weather – District School Closing Procedures
The health and safety of our district children is the highest priority at Decatur Public Schools. It is our goal to improve communication with district families and staff regarding any situation that would cause an interruption in the school day or cancelling of school. It is our intent to alert our families in advance to allow parents to arrange for childcare.
