District reminds parents about weather procedures
The Davis School District reminds parents about procedures the district will use when it considers closing schools for inclement weather. The decision to close schools actually occurs in the early-morning hours when district snow plow drivers are out attempting to clear parking lots before students arrive at school. When plow drivers think conditions are bad, they make calls to the district's maintenance director, transportation director and facilities administrator, who then contact an assistant superintendent and superintendent of schools.

February is recognized as Black History Month. What began as a celebration of important events and people of African descent dates back to 1926.
The celebration began as a week chosen to coincide with the birthdays of Frederick Douglas on Feb. 14 and Abraham Lincoln on Feb. 12. A gradual migration to recognizing the month of February as Black History Month began in 1970 and culminated in 1976 with President Gerald Ford officially recognizing Black History Month as part of the United States Bicentennial celebration.
Today Black History Month is celebrated across the United States and four other countries around the world. While we take time to recognize the great contributions African American citizens have made over our country’s history, we also recognize the tremendous contributions of other Americans of color and nationalities.
The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character — that is the goal of true education.Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
