With concern of the secondary roads on the bus routes that are still covered with snow and forecasted temperatures below freezing during the early morning hours, the Dierks School District will continue with virtual learning on Monday, February 22nd. Another area of concern is the number of households currently without water so we're asking parents to expect communication tomorrow to provide us with updated information to best serve our students.
