In times of crisis, we know that a sense of stability is the best thing for our kids. Over the last several weeks, we have all worked together to create a new sense of stability through our remote learning platform. While we continue to refine our work, we have heard from many of you that this platform is providing your students with a renewed sense of connection to our educational community.

On Tuesday, March 31, Governor Jared Polis issued an executive order extending the suspension of in-person learning through April 30. Superintendents across the Denver metro area then made the collective decision that all of our schools will remain closed to in-person learning for the remainder of the 2019-20 school year. This means students in APS will NOT be returning to schools for in-person learning through the end of this school year. Remote Learning is in effect through the end of the school year.


En tiempos de crisis, sabemos que lo mejor para nuestros estudiantes es tener un sentido de estabilidad. Estas últimas semanas, hemos trabajado todos juntos para reconstruir este sentido de estabilidad por medio de nuestra plataforma de aprendizaje en línea. Nos encontramos perfeccionando nuestra labor, pero ya muchos de ustedes nos han comentado que esta plataforma está ayudando a los estudiantes a sentir una nueva conexión con nuestra comunidad educativa.

El día martes, el Gobernador Jared Polis emitió un decreto ejecutivo que prolonga hasta el 30 de abril la suspensión de clases en persona. Tal como habíamos compartido con ustedes anteriormente, los superintendentes de los distritos escolares de la zona metropolitana han tomado la decisión conjunta de que todas las escuelas permanezcan cerradas por el resto del año escolar 2019-2020. Esto significa que NO regresaremos a las escuelas para tener clases en persona en lo que resta del presente año escolar. El aprendizaje en línea está en vigor hasta el fin del año escolar.

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

  • on local television and radio stations
  • on the APS website
  • on Facebook and Twitter
  • on the APS Emergency Line (303-326-1080)
  • on the APS mobile app
  • and sent to parent/guardian phones

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. APS schools provide many vital resources for students and families. Whenever possible, we strive to keep schools open. 

Please know that even though adverse weather conditions may only affect some areas of the district, in the interest of safety, APS will generally close all of its schools.

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.

Please Note: If your child attends an APS charter school, please check in with your child's school on their status.

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. Dismissal times at the end of the school day will remain the same. Afternoon preschool start times will also remain the same. Some class schedules may be affected by the delayed start. Please check with your school for any specific schedule changes.

For before-school care, please contact your care provider.

Please Note: If your child attends an APS charter school, please check in with your child's school on their status.

Our top priority is to keep students and staff as safe as possible.

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