School Closings

The most common reason for school closures is blowing snow and severe weather.

When severe weather warnings are predicted for our area, and we have consulted with county and state officials, the district may be able to cancel school activities with greater advance notice, allowing you more time to make alternative plans for your student.

When forecasts are less definitive, the district will monitor conditions closely and consult with county and state officials prior to making a decision to close schools. In these instances, we will make every effort to communicate with you no later than 5:30 A.M.

School closure notifications are made via the following communication systems: the ShoutPoint notification system, the district website, local and state media including newspapers, television and radio stations, and updates posted to the SVVSD Newsline (303-682-7387).

When the district remains open but you believe that weather conditions in your specific area are not safe for your student to attend school, please feel free to contact your school’s attendance clerk to obtain an excused absence for your student.

When severe weather conditions cause you to keep your student at home, he/she will be able to make up any missed schoolwork without penalty.

If for any reason the school calendar is altered as a result of school closures, the Board of Education may schedule make-up days on Saturdays, during vacations, or at the end of the school calendar year.
