The decision to keep school open, to close or to have a delayed opening is based on the ability to safely transport students to and from school.
The David Douglas School District makes this decision for the entire district. This includes David Douglas Arthur Academy.
The following situations could occur on a bad weather day:
School is Closed - All students stay home.
Late Opening - This allows families to safely transport students after the roads are cleared and the traffic is reduced.
Early Dismissal - On very rare occasions, we will begin school and then an unexpected storm will cause us to send students home early. Please discuss with your child arrangements that will need to be made in the event that students are sent home early.
In the event there is a school closure/delay, all major Portland radio and television stations announce school closures/delays beginning at 6:00 a.m.
Listen for the announcement naming the David Douglas School District. We are NOT Portland Public Schools.
