Denver Public Schools will have a snow day Monday, officials say
School is canceled Monday for all Denver Public Schools because of the winter storm blowing through the city, a weather event that’s expected to continue at least into Sunday night, a spokesman said.
The overall conditions — snowfall, wind and more — led to the cancellation, said DPS spokesman Michael Vaughan. Virtual classes will not be held either, he confirmed, as school is entirely canceled and the district’s offices will be closed for the day.
As for Tuesday, Vaughan said “we’ll see how things go.” An internal email to DPS staff, provided to The Denver Post by Vaughan, noted that if officials close school buildings again Tuesday, the district — per its new policy — “will transition to remote learning and work.”
As of 8:28 a.m. about 8.1 inches of snowfall had been reported in Denver and as of 6:21 a.m. about 11.1 inches had been reported at Denver International Airport.
Additional updates from the district will be published online at dpsk12.org.
