All school closing decisions will be made at the earliest possible time.
Please understand that although the weather conditions may appear fine in your neighborhood, we must take into account the conditions for all our families both in the Des Moines Metro Area and the surrounding communities.
1. We will contact KCCI (Channel 8) with the information. **Please note that that school is often listed as Des Moines (or DM) Jewish Federation Community School so it often appears under the “D” listings rather than the “J” listings.
2. The closing information will be posted on the Jewish Federation’s website, www.jewishdesmoines.org/jfcs, on the “Jewish Federation Community School” page.
4. We will not be calling families. If your family does nothave home access to email, please let our office know ASAP so that we can make arrangements to contact you should a school closing be necessary.
5. If Des Moines and/or West Des Moines school districts close due to weather conditions on Wednesdays, we will follow suit.
