Winter Weather Policy
When school is cancelled due to winter weather, the DMPS district provides guidance on whether or not practice can be held. Frequently, practice is allowed after 12:00PM for Varsity members only.
However, each school cancellation and weather incident is taken on a case-by-case basis. Coaches will communicate with the team as soon as we know what is allowed for that particular weather event. Also – we will post an update to Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
