Information About Weather-Related Schedule Changes

We want to clarify the process for late starts in the Dubuque Community School District should it be necessary to delay on a Friday morning.

To remain consistent, the start time if there is a weather delay is the same every day of the week.

IF THERE IS A WEATHER-RELATED DELAY ON A FRIDAY, YOUR SCHOOL’S START TIME WILL BE THE SAME AS IT IS ON A WEATHER DELAY THAT OCCURS MONDAY THROUGH THURSDAY.

Here’s an EXAMPLE:

Monday through Thursday
Start time: 8:35 a.m.
Weather delay: 10:35 a.m.

Friday
Start time: 9:35 a.m.
Weather delay: 10:35 a.m.

Please remember that the delay time at your school is based on your school’s actual start time.

FOR STAFF: If there is a weather delay called on a Friday morning, professional development for that day is cancelled and you should report to work at the time you normally would on a two-hour delay day.

Visit the delays and cancellations page for more.
