• Closures and Delays

    School closures during periods of inclement weather are based upon several factors: weather conditions that are both current and predicted to occur during the course of the coming day, road conditions and closures, and the ability of the school sites to prepare for the arrival of students that day.


    If the district decides to cancel school or initiate a delayed start because of inclement weather or other dangerous conditions, the announcement will be carried on radio and tv stations: KCOL 600 AM, KTRR TRI-102.5, 1610 AM, KUNC 91.5, KGRE 1450 AM (Spanish), KFKA 1310 AM, KBNO 1280 AM (Spanish), and Denver Television Stations.


    Communication Regarding School Closures

    Announcements regarding school closures and delayed starts will be made via the district website, Facebook (“Thompson School District”), Twitter (@ThompsonR2J) and the district school closure line (970-613-6788).  A phone call, e-mail and text message will be sent to all district families who have authorized the communication in the Infinite Campus "Parent Portal."  Media sources will be contacted for both school closings and delayed starts.

    When schools are closed, all school events including the YMCA will be cancelled.



    ADD 2 Hours


    Start Time

    Families will add two hours to the start of the school day, including adding two hours to morning bus pick-up times, morning programs and school start times at every level.  Please note that on Wednesdays, this will equate to a 1 hour delayed start due to the already established late start schedule.)



    Morning bus pick-up will be two hours later than the normal pick-up time; afternoon bus drop-off times will not be adjusted.



    Students in the morning programs will be canceled. Afternoon programs will end at their normal end time.
