In the event of bad weather, school district officials will make the decision to close schools, or to delay the start of school. SCDC follows weather closures and early dismissals with each school district.

  • IF your school district closes – all Salem Child Development Center district sites also close, including Early Childhood locations.

  • IF your school district is delayed – SCDC will open at 6:45 am, or as close as is safely possible.

  • IF Dallas or Cascade school districts are delayed – school age morning care will NOT be provided, with

    the exception of normally scheduled late start Wednesdays at Aumsville.

  • IF your school district has early dismissal due to weather conditions – SCDC will close all district sites. Staff will not be on site and you will need to make arrangements with the school. SCDC cannot be used as your emergency backup during these closures.

  • IF your school district closes while children are in our care – SCDC will close, including Early Childhood locations. Parents will be notified via phone and media. We receive a large volume of calls so please check media frequently during bad weather events and share information with co-workers. For everyone’s safety we ask parents to please respond quickly.

  • IF questionable road conditions exist – SCDC will cancel all transportation, including travel between programs and field trips.

  • IF inclement weather events occur during school breaks, such as “winter break”, please refer to SCDC’s website,, for closure information.
