May 1st Parent Information

Dear Parent/Guardian,


The Board of Trustees and district administration has made the decision

to close schools for students and staff on Wednesday, May 1st.  As of today, there are a large number of teachers who will be absent on this day, with some schools having more than ½ of their

teachers not present.  This critical shortage of staff with inadequate numbers of trained

substitutes available to cover classes creates a major concern for the safety of students in a secure learning environment.  This was a difficult decision; however, the safety of students and staff is always the basis of all decisions made in Dorchester School District Two

The Board of Trustees will have a called board meeting on Tuesday, April 30th at 6:00 pm, at the Adult Education Learning Center, 1325 Boone Hill Road, Summerville following the budget workshop to address the makeup day for May 1st in the district calendar.
