Inclement Weather Procedure Change
CDCFC will revert back to our normal Inclement Weather Procedure and follow the decision of Columbus City Schools for weather-related school closures. Please be mindful that CCS will not be in session on Wednesdays for the remainder of this school year and CDCFC will make decisions for those snow days accordingly.
We will send out communications via agency email and the automated text system. You can also watch the news outlets for the "Child Development Council of Franklin County" on the closure announcements.
