Every effort is made to contact media prior to 6:00 a.m. for all-day school closure or late start. Late Start – Classes begin two (2) hours later than regular school days.
If there is going to be an early dismissal, that decision is usually made 2 hours prior to the early dismissal time. Media is contacted as soon as a decision is made for an early dismissal. When there is an early dismissal, students in Deadwood are dismissed 15 minutes earlier than Lead due to the shuttle bus route (Example: Deadwood release 12:45 p.m., Lead release 1:00 p.m.).
Parents/Guardians can choose not to send their child(ren) to school on inclement weather days. These absences are excused if parents/guardians choose to keep them at home.
The school district hopes this information will be helpful to you.
