Weather Delays and Closures
Process for School Closures and 1-hour Delayed Starts
In the event of bad weather, Adams 12 Five Star Schools uses a variety of resources to determine if conditions exist that warrant a 1-hour delayed start or closure of schools.
Every effort will be made to announce a decision by 5:30 a.m. to close or delay opening schools.
Communication - How will you know?
Alerts are only sent if schools are closed or operating on a 1-hour delay.
If schools are operating on a normal schedule you will not receive an alert.
How We Determine School Closures or Delayed Starts
To learn more about how we determine whether or not school should be closed or delayed due to weather, read District Policy 5710: Emergency School Closure and One-Hour Delays.
If schools are open but a parent feels, based on personal circumstances, that conditions pose a safety concern for their child getting to or from school they can call the school for an excused absence.
