FACEBOOK | DECEMBER 05, 2013 ‘Tis the Season: Reminder about DC Prep's School Closings Policy for Inclement Weather DC Prep follows its own schedule for inclement weather closings. We will review the decisions of neighboring school districts, other charter schools, and DCPS, and make a decision by 5AM on the day in question. Information about DC Prep’s closings or delayed openings will be communicated via local TV and radio stations as well as Facebook and Twitter (follow us on Twitter “@DCPrep” or text “follow dcprep” to 40404 to get Twitter text messages about DC Prep’s closings, updates, and events!). You may also call your child’s campus phone number – a VM about school delays and closing information, as needed, will be recorded. We will also send an AlertNow message to families. If school is closed due to weather, Prep EX! and evening activities are generally also cancelled. As always, be sure to keep your family’s contact information up to date with your campus Operations Team!
