Late Starts, Early Outs, and Closings
Throughout the year there will be days when, due to inclement weather, school is delayed, dismissed early, or closed for the day. Delays or closings may be announced as late as 6:00 am. We will use our calling system, Campus Messenger, to announce changes in the school schedule due to weather. We typically also post announcements on:
- Social Media (Facebook /DasselCokatoSchoolDistrict and Instagram @DasselCokatoSchoolDistrict466)
- Channel 4 WCCO (830 AM)
- Channel 11 KARE TV
- Channel 5 KSTP
- Channel 9 FOX
- KDUZ (1260 AM)
For more information on the Campus Messenger system, please contact of the school offices.
Minnesota Weather is highly variable and changes quickly.
There are days when it is clear at 6:15 am and foggy at 6:45 am. Weather and road conditions also vary widely around the 186 square miles of the district. Although we attend to weather conditions closely, you may consider the conditions of your location unsafe for your children. Additionally, your child may have an early morning practice or commitment at school that occurs before a delay or closure is announced. Ultimately, it is the responsibility of parents to send their children to school, or to keep them home when the weather is inclement. If you don't think it is safe to sent your child to school, don't send them.
SNOW DAYS were used on Friday, January 14th and February 22nd. If there is a need for school to close another day, it will be an E-learning day for students.
