Voyager Academy Closing

Voyager Academy will close today, Friday, February 7th.

We apologize for the inconvenience and confusion. We tried to make a go of it this morning, but power is now out on campus. Students in the Elementary are in the building and safe. Please return as soon as possible to pick them up. Please park and come to the front office to pick up your students. Please do not drop off Middle and High School students.

Voyager not on delay

Hello families!

I know we always remind families that we follow the DPS delays and closures but we have checked in with our teams and with law enforcement and feel we will be safe to operate school without a delay.  However we will NOT offer early care to allow for some roads to get cleared if needed and we will NOT have sibling care without early care so ALL families will need to drop off at EACH building.
If you feel it is unsafe to drive please know that tardies and absences will be excused.
Thanks for your patience as we make all decisions in the best interest of our students and staff!
Have a great night .

Voyager Academy Closing Early

Due to the impending weather and recent update from the Sheriff’s department, we are dismissing school early for the safety of our students and staff.
Elementary school will dismiss at 1:00.
Middle school will dismiss at 1:30.
High school will dismiss at 2:00.

This storm has caused severe damage to several states and is tracking our way and we want to ensure our students get home safely.

There is no after school care this afternoon/evening so please make arrangements to pick up students who normally go to after school. Please arrive for pick up as soon as possible but know your children will be kept safe until you get here.

We apologize for the quick turnaround but the weather forecast is concerning and we want all students/families safe.
