DENVER — Another Front Range school district is cancelling classes Friday due to staffing shortages, school officials wrote in a letter that was sent to parents on Monday.

A spokespersons for the Adams County School District 14 said there will be no school for kids in Pre-K through 12th grade on Friday, Nov. 12, due to ongoing staffing challenges across Colorado schools.

District officials said in a letter to families and staff that the district is facing “a staffing challenge that we will not be able to overcome due to staffing shortages,” and said the Nov. 12 closures would be treated as a snow day.

In the letter, the district reminded parents that meal, transportation and child care services; school clubs; and athletics would be closed on Thursday, Nov. 11 as well as Friday, Nov. 12.

Kids will already be out of the classroom by Thursday as school districts across the state observe Veterans Day on Nov. 11.

Adams 14 joins the Boulder Valley School District and Adams 12 Five Star Schools, both of which announced last week that classes would be canceled for all students this Friday due to staffing challenges.
