Before making decisions relating to inclement weather, the superintendent, DPS leadership as well as the Department of Safety, Facility Management and Transportation teams will consult with:
Local, national and independent weather services
City of Denver plowing schedules
Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT)
Neighboring school districts
The final decision to go remote or close will be made by the superintendent. That decision is based on the expected accumulation of snow, the size of the storm and its duration.
We are committed to informing families about school delays or closures as early as possible with the goal to make the call by 5 a.m.
