The Douglas County School District was the first to make the call, saying in an email to parents, "While the snowfall may taper off throughout the day today, the snow accumulations make it very unlikely that residential roads, parking lots, bus terminals, etc. will be cleared in time for school tomorrow."

Others would follow soon after.

These are the districts that have canceled classes Friday:

  • Adams 12 Five Star Schools
  • Boulder Valley School District
  • Cherry Creek School District
  • Denver Public Schools
  • Douglas County School District
  • Jeffco Public Schools
  • Littleton Public Schools

Adams County School District 14 officials said schools were pivoting to remote learning Friday, but that all school facilities, district offices, and buildings will be closed.

CU Boulder will have a delayed start on Friday. Classes will begin at 10 a.m. "due to weather impacts," officials said via X, formerly Twitter.

Denver’s predicted snow totals for Thursday’s storm could reach well over a foot or more in some locations, likely causing dangerous travel conditions in the metro and across the state.
