Reversing what had been a long-standing policy, the Jeffco Public Schools now has the option of delaying school start times by two hours when weather conditions suggest it, the district announced Tuesday.
Jeffco has been one of the few counties in the Denver area that has not allowed for delayed openings, but Superintendent Jason Glass says the new protocol will give administrators more choices when dealing with Colorado’s unpredictable skies.
The procedures for the delayed start will be the same as those for a full closure: Parents should be notified of the delayed start by 5:30 a.m., and the same considerations that go into a full closure will go into this decision.
