DPS to hold no classes for next six weeks, go to school in June instead

Dayton Daily News |

Dayton Public Schools will take a six-week winter break with no classes at all — neither in-person nor online — then go to school through the month of June to make up for the lost time.

Dayton’s school board approved the calendar change Tuesday night by a 7-0 vote after discussing the impact the ongoing COVID-19 surge was having on school staffing and student engagement.

“The decision was made due to a rise in the number of COVID-19-related cases and individuals in quarantine in the district and due to community spread,” the district wrote in a social media post. “We realize that this is a very hard time for our staff and families and we will continue to update information as needed.”

Remote learning will run through Jan. 1, 2021, but the district will re-evaluate the situation before students return to class Jan. 4 following the winter break.
