Inclement Weather Guidance

Storm Schedule

DELAYED START- one and one-half hours later with a start time of 10:10 am.

Weather Hotline 303-387-7669 or Watch Channels 4, 7,9 or check the District website

Delayed Start:

The district also has procedures regarding delayed start times due to snow accumulation in the mornings. On rare occasions, we have had early dismissals if a blizzard is expected.

The district checks roads at 4 am in the morning. They decide if it will be a late start before school starts by Feeder Region (usually based on bus access on side streets and safety of students walking). We are in the Castle View Feeder.

School closure due to snow is usually called in the early morning as well.

You can check the District web-site for school closures or the District hotline 303-387-SNOW (7669). 

Lightning at dismissal:

We do not dismiss students if lightning is within a certain number of miles from the school. We send an automatic dialer to your phones and send an email immediately. Please do not call our office to check, instead use the above avenues since this is a busy time releasing students.

In the event of a Lightning dismissal:

We hold all walkers and bike riders for your child’s safety. Parents need to come in and pick up their children from classrooms at 3:20pm. All bus riders and daycare buses will be dismissed to the gym to quickly get on the assigned buses. All Hawks Nest students will continue to go to Hawks Nest when the bell rings @ 3:30pm.
