School Closures and Delayed Starts

School Closure

If schools are closed for the day because of weather, students will remain home. Generally, this also means that all other school activities, such as after-school clubs, sports, practices, etc. are also canceled for that day. The lost instructional time may need to be made up later in the year in order to meet the State of Colorado's requirements instructional time for students.

Two-Hour Delayed Start

If schools will open on a two-hour delayed start, then students should arrive at school two hours later than their normal start times. A delayed start could be used if weather or road conditions are severe overnight but expected to improve in the morning. On a delayed-start day, school buses will run their routes two hours later than normal. Parents who drive their children to school should drop their children off two hours later than the normal time. After-school activities will continue as normally scheduled.


If schools are to be closed or put on a two-hour delayed start because of poor weather and road conditions, then that decision will be announced by these means:
• A posting on the district's main website, WWW.GREELEYSCHOOLS.ORG
• Postings to the district's Twitter and Facebook pages
• A recorded message on the district's main phone line: 970-348-6000
• Notification to local and metro-Denver area radio and TV stations
• Notification to The Greeley Tribune newspaper
