Snow Day Information Skip to main content

The Transportation Department always considers student safety ahead of time schedules, so please bear with us on snow days. When the highways require snow tires, our buses are required to chain-up and therefore move much slower (25 mph maximum speed).

In the event of inclement weather, DCSD's first consideration is the safety of our students.

It may become necessary for us to cancel school, delay pickup times by one or two hours, or pick up students at specific stops for Lake Tahoe Schools (called Main Stops). 

This decision will be made no later than 6:00AM, and our website and Facebook page will display this information by 6:30AM. You will also receive an auto-dialer message informing  you of school closures or delays, providing we have your correct phone numbers. You can check that by logging into your Infinite Campus Parent Portal account and checking your contact preferences and phone numbers.

Local radio and TV stations will also announce school closures or delays. These stations are listed below.
