Duke School's Closing and Delayed Openings Communication Procedure

In case of inclement weather: School closings, delayed openings and early dismissals will be announced in several ways - through a blast phone call/text, e-mail, the school app and posted on Duke School's website and social media as well as select news stations.

If we hold school and then call for an early release or close after school activities, the announcements will be made as aforementioned, but will be sent to every contact phone number and e-mail address on file. If this is the case, please expect multiple messages.

Since Duke School does not operate buses, we tend to open more readily than public schools do in inclement weather. If for any reason you do not feel comfortable driving when school is open, please know that your safety and that of your child/ren are most important, and we will honor your judgment. Parents are welcome to pick up a child early if inclement weather threatens and you feel it is necessary to do so in order to arrive home safely.
