Duncan Lake Early Childhood Center (DLECC) has experienced a dramatic increase in COVID-19 positivity and other illnesses this week. Due to the high number of student and staff absences, we will be shutting down DLECC for the remainder of the week.

DLECC will be closed, Wednesday, January 19, through Friday, January 21, 2022. We will return to in-person learning on Monday, January 24, 2022. All other buildings will continue in-person instruction.
