Dayton Public Schools will close schools on Thursday and Friday and provide work to students to be completed on those days, according to a district post posted to the DPS website.

Students and staff will return on Tuesday, Jan. 18 for a regular school week.

“We hope that this time at home will give everyone an opportunity to get well,” said DPS superintendent Elizabeth Lolli.

School is still in session on Wednesday, Jan. 12, and students will get breakfast and lunch bags for Thursday and Friday before leaving school on Wednesday, according to the district.

Athletic events for Thursday and Friday are canceled, but school events scheduled for Saturday, Sunday and Monday will continue, Lolli said, but changes could occur.
