Have a wonderful summer!
The Davie County School System may make the decision to close early, to delay, or to cancel school when winter weather makes driving conditions hazardous. We will make every reasonable effort to make announcements by 6:00 AM. If we are in the middle of several days of bad weather and a decision can be made in the evening, we will do so. To communicate how inclement weather has affected our normal school operation, the Connect-ED telephone notification system will be used to announce schedule changes to all parents, students, and staff. Connect-ED will begin calling parents and students at 6:00 AM, but it takes some time for the system to call the homes of all 6500 children. The message will also be available on the Davie County Schools Message Line (753-1797 for English; 753-1798 for Spanish). In addition, announcements will be made on the local radio and television stations listed below and communicated through the Davie County Schools’ website and Facebook page. If no announcement is made, schools will operate on a normal schedule.
WXII, Winston-Salem, Channel 12 TV
WGHP, High Point, Channel 8 TV
WFMY, Greensboro, Channel 2 TV
Carolina News, Channel 14 TV
WTQR, Winston-Salem, 104.1 FM radio
WSJS, Winston-Salem, 600 or 1200 AM radio
WSIC, Statesville, 1400 AM radio
WDSL, Mocksville, 1520 AM radio
WSGH, Winston-Salem, 1040 AM radio (Spanish)
Weather conditions sometimes become unfavorable during the day after children have arrived at school. In the event we have to dismiss early, a Connect-ED message will be sent to all parents, and local radio and TV stations will make the announcement. Working parents are advised to make arrangements for childcare on days when schools must be dismissed early.
Please check the media sites listed above, call our message line, or visit our website for weather related information. Please do not call individual schools, the central administrative office, or the news media for weather closing or delay updates; during these times we want to keep our lines open for other school related communication. We will communicate closings, delays, and early dismissals as quickly as possible. Our primary concern is the safety of children and our staff. Thank you for your continued support!
