When snow hits our city, APS staff members assess conditions beginning just after midnight to determine the impact on operations. Should we need to close school or delay the start of school, Superintendent John L. Barry and staff will make the decision as early as possible.

If APS closes school, or delays start times, announcements will be made:

  • on local television and radio stations
  • on the APS website
  • on FaceBook and Twitter
  • on the APS Emergency Line (303-326-1080)
  • and sent to parent phones using Connect-Ed.

Should APS staff make the decision to delay school, the school day would begin one hour later than normal. That means our school day at Yale would begin at 9:20. Staff members are expected to get to school as close to their regular start time as is safely possible as some students will arrive at the normal time. APS buses will pick up students one hour later than normal. Our top priority is to keep students and staff as safe as possible.
