Inclement Weather

The decision to keep schools open or to close them during winter weather conditions is not a simple one, but it is made with one overriding factor in mind: the well-being of our students, their families, and staff. DPS Transportation has made preparations to ensure buses are running and students arrive safely to school. Our drivers participate in a comprehensive training program that includes preparation for driving in inclement weather and adverse conditions like wintry weather.

Information about school closures is announced through the following media outlets:

  • The Communications Office will immediately notify local television and radio stations, which will broadcast regular announcements of school closures. You can also visit, and Notifications in Spanish will be made on radio newscasts on 1150 AM, 1280 AM and 1090 AM.
  • Emergency school closures will be posted on the district’s homepage immediately.
  • Announcements to close or delay school will also be posted to the district‘s Facebook and Twitter pages.
  • A message denoting the closure will also be left on the school district’s closure hotline at 720.423.3200
