Out of concern for the safety of our students and Atlanta-area motorists, DeKalb County School District (DCSD) will cancel all classes on Friday, March 31, 2017.

**Twelve-month employees only should report to work.**

The collapse of a portion Interstate 85 northbound near Georgia 400 on Thursday evening is expected to significantly impair travel in DeKalb County and for DCSD school buses, leading to traffic delays. By taking its buses off the road, the district hopes to reduce its impact on the roads on a day where many drivers will be forced to take alternate routes.

“After careful evaluation, the district has determined that it will not be able to transport students to and from school efficiently given the transportation event this evening,” said Superintendent R. Stephen Green. “With one day before Spring Break begins, the prudent decision is to keep students at home, and not contribute to difficult travel conditions.”
DCSD will be on Spring Break on April 3-7. For updates related to DCSD, families are encouraged to visit www.dekalbschoolsga.org.
