Extreme Weather Early Dismissal 8/24/2023

Dear Central Academy Students and families,

Because of extreme heat tomorrow, Des Moines Public Schools will be dismissing 3 hours early on Thursday, August 24, 2023.

Here is how this affects Central Classes:

At DMPS home High Schools: 

  • Period 5 cut short, periods 8 Cancelled.
  • Central students arrive back at HS by 11:30. They will eat lunch at their home schools.

Central High School students:

  • Periods 5 – 8 Cancelled
  • We will run normal bell times and bus times for periods 1 – 3.
  • All students who attend period 3 at Central will load buses at 11:10 and eat lunch at home schools at approximately 11:30.

Central Middle School students:

  • 8th Grade Academy classes as normal. Students return to home school at 11:10 for lunch as normal.
  • Prep Academy (7th Grade) Cancelled.

To accommodate all the High School and Middle School buses returning together at 11:10, we will move Lincoln buses to zone 3 (curb in front of Academy) and Callanan, Cowles, Harding, and Merrill to Zone 2 (driveway in front of Academy).
