October 25, 2013

Ready or not, the fall weather has arrived! Some of you may have experienced snow already while others just had freezing rain. Either way, it's cold outside and we'd like to remind our students of a few points:

  1. Dress for the weather. Even if you plan on spending most of your day at school inside, remember that the occasional fire drill might require you to stand outside in the cold. 
  2. Drive safely. Whether it's fog, wet leaves, or snow, the roads can be slippery and dangerous as the weather changes.
  3. For our bus riders, remember to stand back from the road when waiting for the bus. Now that it's dark in the morning, it can be difficult for drivers to see you. 
  4. Keep reading for a reminder on our school closings and delays policy.
We hope everyone is able to enjoy all of the fall festivals and festivities that Central Ohio has to offer!

School Delays and Closings

In the event of a school delay or closing, DACC notifies local TV/radio stations, the information is posted to the DACC web site and social media platforms, and a Honeywell Instant Alert is sent out to those who subscribe. However, school delays can be a little confusing and not everyone knows exactly what to do. Below are our most frequently asked questions regarding delays:

Q: I'm a half-day junior. Do I come to my morning lab on a 1 or 2 hour delay?
A: Yes. However, if the roads in your area are too treacherous to travel, your absence will be considered excused as long as we have a note or phone call from your parent.

Q: I'm a half-day senior. Does my lab start at the regular time on a 1 or 2 hour delay?
A: Yes - plan to come to your afternoon lab at the regular time.
Q: I'm a full-day senior. On a 1 or 2-hour delay, where should I go upon arriving at school?
A: When you arrive at school, go straight to the class you are normally in at that time. For instance, if you arrive at 9am, go straight to your 9am class.
Q: My home school is on a 2-hour delay, but DACC is not. What do I do?
A: Follow your home school's delay schedule. Bring a parent note with you when you do arrive late to DACC in order for your absence to be excused.

Nick Marzluf - Designer of Del-Co Water's New Logo

Delaware County residents may soon notice a new design to their local water towers, designed by a Delaware Area Career Center high school student, Nick Marzluf. The logo design was opened up as a competition to schools and colleges in Del-Co's service area and Nick's design was one of over 400 that was submitted. He was awarded $350 for being chosen. The runner-up was also a DACC student - Mattie Garrett won $150 for her participation.  
Congratulations to Nick and thank you to Del-Co Water for opening up this re-branding project as a competition to local students.

DACC CBI Students Explore Manufacturing as Career Choices

In celebration of Manufacturing Month, DACC CBI teachers, Nicki Wright and Tina Francis worked with the Delaware Area Chamber of Commerce Quality of Life Committee to arrange tours of local manufacturing plants. They wanted to show their students that they can plan for a successful career in manufacturing and the companies that are hiring are in their own community. Companies that participated in the tour included Federal Heath Sign Company, V&P Hydraulic Products, Sky Climber, and Luvata Ohio.
