Notice Bad Weather Day Alternatives




  The goal of the Dalton Local School District is to provide each student with a full day of school activity for each day of the adopted school calendar.  This goal is based on the assumption that weather and road conditions are not excessively hazardous.

  Under conditions of extremely hazardous weather or roads, school will be cancelled for the day.  Wooster Radio WKVX 960 AM and WQKT 104.5  FM will broadcast school closing information OR you can check the Dalton Local Schools web page at  /.

   For those of you who have signed up for the e-mail alerts, you will be notified via text or e-mail.  If you have not signed up but would like to, please go to: Dalton. Text Alerts

 If conditions indicate that a delayed opening will permit school to open (fog, ice, etc.), all bus runs will be as follows:

In situations where weather turns hazardous during the school day, it may be necessary to dismiss school early.  Early dismissal could occur beginning as early as 12:45 p.m. for Dalton Local High School and Dalton Middle School and 1:45 p.m. for Dalton Elementary School.  As soon as a decision is made for early dismissal, it will be reported to the Wooster Radio Stations--WKVX 960 AM or WQKT 104.5 FM.  An attempt will be made to use the early dismissal information for each child in grades K-4.

The procedures outlined above will allow the schools to meet state requirements relative to minimum school day hours.
