  • Trapper Keeper or similar binder holder. MUST have a zipper which completely closes the binder holder. Students will transport their Skinner-issued Chromebooks in their binder holders.
  • Writing Utensils
  • Ear Buds or Headphones

Winter Weather Information

The decision to keep schools open or to close them during winter weather conditions is not a simple one, but it is made with one overriding factor in mind: the well-being of our students, their families and staff. It is a good idea to decide in advance how to best keep up with the changes, what childcare arrangements are needed, and how to adjust if schools closed due to inclement weather. Detailed DPS winter weather and snow day information, including information on how families can find out if school is closed, can be found on the transportation website or on the DPS website.  Please be advised that on “Late Start” days, Skinner’s start time DOES NOT CHANGE. We start school at the normal time of 7:35 am.  Late Start times typically apply to elementary schools only.

Inclement Weather COVID Adjustments (9/2021)

Arrival: On inclement weather days in the mornings, we will post signs outside grade-level entrances directing students to Main Entrance on 40th Street. Students will be brought inside the Auditorium between 7:10-7:20.  We will do our best to have students socially distanced as much as possible. 

Lunch will always be outdoors, unless inclement weather. If outdoor lunch is not feasible due to weather, we will have a modified lunch rotation plan which would ensure students are unmasked for less than 15 minutes, socially distanced in the cafeteria – while the other half of the students are socially distanced in the Auditorium (watching a fun video clip).
