All schools and offices in the DeKalb County School District (DCSD) will reopen on Friday, Sept. 15, 2017. All extracurricular activities, and sporting events will be held as scheduled.
There may be delays with school buses, and at schools, as we return to business. DeKalb Schools asks for your patience as we reopen schools safely.
As we transition back to service, DCSD is addressing a few lingering issues. These include the following:
As of 2:45 p.m. on Sept. 14, three DCSD campuses are without power. However, the district is hopeful that Georgia Power will restore power to these campuses. Each region has a specific relocation plan of action should such be needed.
• As of 4:20pm All DCSD campuses have power.
• There are still fallen trees and other obstacles that could delay the arrival of school buses in both the morning and afternoon. Students are advised to arrive at their bus stops early and be patient.
• DCSD strongly advises families to be safe on their journey to school and from school and encourage students to avoid contact with downed trees and/or power lines.
Road closures remain a concern in DeKalb County. There are approximately 35 reported road closures in the area. This number is an improvement from the 80 road closures reported on yesterday.
The School Nutrition Department has surveyed the schools and is prepared to provide breakfast and lunch for students. Spoiled food that was lost during power outages will be discarded and emergency requests have been made to vendors. The department also stands ready to provide food for schools that may need to be relocated, if power is not reinstated.
