Weather Closures in APSIf our district closes schools or delays start times, announcements will be made:

When inclement weather hits Aurora, APS Support Services staff work to determine how the weather will impact the school day.

How Weather Conditions are Assessed
APS staff members assess conditions beginning just after midnight to determine the impact on operations. Should we need to close schools or delay the start of the school day, the superintendent and staff will make the decision as early as possible.

Once a decision is made, information about the decision is shared as soon as possible with all media, posted on the APS website and mobile app, Facebook and Twitter, recorded on the APS Emergency Line at 303-326-1080, and sent to parent phones using our automated messaging system.

Delayed Start Times
Should APS staff make the decision to delay school, the school day would begin one hour later than normal. Staff members are expected to arrive at school as close to their regular start time as is safely possible as some students will arrive on time.

APS buses will pick up students one hour later than normal.  Our top priority is to keep students and staff as safe as possible.

Please note: A delayed start does not change regular pick-up times at the end of the school day.
