Protocol for DPS Weather Delay/School Closure

In an effort to increase student safety during winter months, Denver Public Schools would like to remind you of its Weather Delay Policy for the 2019-20 school year. New for this school year, all schools (regardless of start time) will be delayed by two hours if a Weather Delay is called by the District.

The purpose of the Weather Delay Schedule is to provide school buses additional time to pick up students and reduce student wait time in severe weather. The decision to close or delay school will be made by the superintendent based on information provided by representatives from DPS Transportation Services, transportation agencies and the weather bureau.
