Student Transportation Inclement Weather Plan
OSSE Division of Student Transportation (OSSE DOT) will suspend all transportation services when District of Columbia Public Schools (DCPS) is closed and DC Government is closed due to inclement weather.
Please read the division’s Inclement Weather Procedures [PDF] for more detailed information regarding student transportation during inclement weather.
During inclement weather, OSSE DOT will communicate student transportation updates regularly through:
- OSSE Website (www.osse.dc.gov)
- OSSE DOT Web (http://osse.dc.gov/service/student-transportation)
- OSSE Facebook (www.facebook.com/ossedc)
- OSSE Twitter (@OSSEDC)
- Automated voice messages*
- Message on Parent Resource Center call line (202-576-5000)
*Parents/Guardians must provide up-to-date contact information to their child’s school to ensure they receive these automated messages.
Parents/Guardians are responsible for arranging alternative transportation if their child’s school chooses to remain open when OSSE DOT is not providing services due to inclement weather. In this event, OSSE DOT will reimburse parents/guardians on a per-mile basis.
For more information about parent reimbursement, contact the Parent Resource Center at 202-576-5000.
