Weather Plan 2020-2021

Durham Community Preschool will operate rain or shine.

For families attending our program, we greatly encourage the following:

  • In warm weather, apply bug spray and sunscreen on your child before drop-off
  • Rain boots and rain jackets are encouraged. Muddy Buddy suits are a great investment for rainy days!
  • Dressing in layers can help with days where the temperature shifts
  • In colder weather, making sure your child is wearing a jacket that they are familiar with and like. Mittens or gloves can be tucked into pockets to keep little hands warm
  • Sturdy, closed toed footwear will help keep your child safe with they explore

In the event of severe weather (thunderstorms, hurricanes, tornado warnings, ice, snow), DCP will be closed. All families will be added to Remind and be sent a text/email about closures during the school year.

In the event that severe weather happens during preschool hours, we have a weather plan to use our indoor space safely and with social distancing. Because the weather is unpredictable, we’ve increased our inclement weather make-up days from 5 to 14. This means that if we do not have closures, these school days would be extra days for our families.
