DACC Parents and Families - 

Good afternoon!

We hope you are all staying warm and safe.

So far, the 2014/2015 school year has brought some interesting and unpredictable weather. We understand that when your child attends two districts, delays and closings can become confusing, so we appreciate your patience during this process. 

Below you will find some information regarding delays/closings, procedures, and a message from our Superintendent.


Please don't hesitate to contact us with questions at (740) 548-0708.

Upcoming Events


February 5th

Parent Teacher Conferences

With the unpredictable weather and family activities, travel time, etc., we want to offer flexibility to communicate with your child's teachers. For this conference, we are offering times for you to sign up to have the teacher call you or to meet face-to-face.  

Times for phone conferences will be from 4:30pm to 6:45pm.  The last hour, 7:00pm to 8:00pm, will be dedicated to face-to-face meetings.


Families, for students that go to Labs at South Campus please call Debbi Pemberton (740) 201-3210 and students that go to North Campus Labs - call Renita Russell (740) 203-2201 to schedule.

Delays & Closings

Many of you received a message from our Superintendent, Mary Beth Freeman, about our process for delays and closings. That message held valuable information about why decisions are made and what you should expect, so we posted her message on our web site.


We also updated our Delays & Closings FAQ. Be sure to review that information here.
