The Dell Rapids Public School District recently announced changes to the winter break schedule. During the regular Dell Rapids School Board meeting on Monday, November 9th, the board approved changes to start the winter break after school ends for the day on Friday, December 18th. Students would then come back to school on Monday, January 4th.
Dell Rapids Superintendent Dr. Summer Schultz said, “Although student contact time is always a priority, this change provides staff and students an additional four days out of school to isolate or self-monitor symptoms before the Christmas holiday. The additional time will also help our custodial crew as they continue to work tirelessly to clean and disinfect the facilities.”
The original break was scheduled to start with a 1:00 p.m. early release on Tuesday, December 22nd and last until Monday, January 4th.
