Delayed Start Procedure

Per DPS: 

In the event of inclement weather, district officials will work to make a decision as early as the forecast and conditions allow, with a final decision coming no later than 5 a.m. Choosing a delayed start gives road crews time to plow, and gives our Transportation Department time to prepare buses for students. 

If DPS calls a delayed start, you will receive a message through SchoolMessenger by robocall and/or text message. 

Please tune in to your local television and radio stations, our website, our Facebook, and @DPSnewsnow, and @DPSschoolbus on Twitter between 5:30am-6:00am. Notifications in Spanish will be made on radio newscasts at 1150 AM, 1280 AM, and 1090 AM. A message announcing the delayed start will also be left on the DPS closure hotline at 720-423-3200 and on the DPS Transportation hotline at 720-423-4600.
