Two-Hour Delay Schedule Information

When there is inclement weather, Jeffco Public Schools makes an open or closed decision as early as possible in order to accommodate transportation, services, and staff. Any closure or delayed start is publicly announced and families are notified directly by 6 am.

When this occurs, the district will post first on the district website, Twitter, and Facebook pages, then contact families via email, text, and phone using SchoolMessenger. Depending on your personal settings, you will receive an email, text message, and/or phone message.

In addition to direct messaging, media outlets are notified of cancellations and delays. News outlets, websites, and social media may have the information prior to direct notification to families and staff because we do not want to message families after 9 pm or earlier than 5:30 am.

In the event of weather conditions that do not warrant cancelling school, Jeffco Public Schools may call a 2-Hour Delay Schedule. Buses will run regular routes (unless otherwise notified) and pick up students two hours later than their regular pick up time. West Transportation posts route-specific delay information on their Facebook page.

Families can always make the decision to not send their children to school that day if they feel it is unsafe. Our schools are flexible with late arrivals and will always excuse a student absence when called in by a parent or guardian. Families with a medical letter/contract will be excused as well.

In the event of a 2-hour delay start, West Jeff Middle students that arrive during the delay start will be in the gym or cafeteria under the supervision of teachers/staff. Our 2-Hour Delay Schedule bell schedule is published on our Calendar/Bell Schedule page.

For additional information from the district on the decision-making process for delays and closures, please see Winter Weather Closure and 2-Hour Delay Procedures.
