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 the district has consulted with county and state officials, we may be able to cancel school activities with greater advance notice, allowing parents more time to make alternative plans for their student.

When forecasts are less definitive, the district monitors conditions and consults with county and state officials prior to making a decision to close schools. In these instances, the district makes every effort to communicate with parents no later than 5:30 A.M.

School closure notifications are made via the ShoutPoint voice, email and texting system, in the upper portion of all web pages, 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 parents believe that weather conditions in their specific area are not safe for their student to attend school, parents should contact their school’s attendance clerk to obtain an excused absence for their student.

When severe weather conditions cause parents to keep their student at home, the student 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.
