DCSD activates 90 minute delay

The Douglas County School District will be operating on a 90-minute delay today, Friday January 31.

While it appears the majority of the morning snowfall has stopped, additional time is needed to better ensure safe conditions.

We encourage everyone within the District to drive cautiously. Parents who do not feel comfortable with their students walking to school, waiting for the bus or driving in these conditions, should consider alternate transportation options. As always, we respect a parent's decision to keep their students home, based on their specific situation. Click on the Delayed Start button or go to for information about delayed schedule.
