Several of the state's largest school districts are either closed or operating remotely Tuesday as a frigid cold snap hangs on in Colorado.

Jeffco Public Schools, Denver Public Schools, Douglas County Schools, Cherry Creek Schools and Aurora Public Schools are among the districts that will be closed Tuesday, according to announcements from the districts.

St. Vrain Valley Dist RE-1J announced it would be remote on Tuesday.

"Due to the unprecedented length of sustained low temperatures that is forecasted to continue tomorrow, all Jeffco Public Schools buildings and facilities will be closed Tuesday, January 16. This will give us time to assess district facilities and prepare them to safely serve students," the district posted on Facebook. "All childcare programs, after-school activities, and meetings scheduled to be in Jeffco Public Schools facilities are canceled. No Jeffco Public Schools transportation services will be provided for services within or outside the district."

Cherry Creek Schools cited similar concerns on the district website.

"The District is concerned for student safety and several buildings have experienced burst pipes. Classes and school activities will be cancelled. Before and after school daycare programs will be closed," a pop-up window reads.

Douglas County Schools in their announcement noted impacts on the transportation fleet, including two diesel fuel pumps being out of commission.

But those districts not the only ones.
