Adams 12 Five Star Schools may announce a delayed start if temporary adverse weather conditions exist in the morning. If a delayed start is announced, ADD 1 hour to the start of the school day. School will end at its normal time.
While the district may still close if extreme weather dictates, delayed starts are an option to maximize instructional time with students rather than closing for the entire day. Starting two hours later gives the city and district staff additional time to clear roads, sidewalks and parking lots to ensure the safety of the Five Star community.
