When the weather is severe enough that it is necessary to close schools in all or part of the District, it is extremely important that working parents have pre-arranged child care available to them; arrangements with a friend or neighbor; provisions at a child care center; child care leave from work (if available); arrangements with a neighborhood teenager who also would be out of school; etc. It is very important that parents make these arrangements before the event, since Colorado weather is unpredictable, and it's not unusual to be hit by a severe storm at almost any time during the school year!
In the case of partial closings (where only certain schools or areas in the district are closed) the principal of each affected school will determine whether activities such as parent meetings, programs, athletic events and building-use contracts will be held, cancelled or postponed. Please check with school administration for this information. In the event of a district-wide closure, under most circumstances all events will be cancelled.
