Poudre School District schools will start two hours later than normal on Thursday, January 6, due to severe weather and road conditions. Here is what you can expect:

  • Bus pick-up times: Buses will pick up students at bus stops 2 hours later than the regular schedule. Road conditions may increase travel time for buses and students may have a longer wait time at bus stops.
  • Drop-off and arrival times: Students who walk to school are dropped off or who drive should arrive 2 hours later than regular arrival times. Please do not arrive earlier.
  • CLARIFIED INFO ABOUT Early Childhood Education programs (clarification to the Jan. 5 district email): Morning sessions are canceled when the district does a two-hour delayed start. Afternoon sessions will start and end at normal times. Before-and after-school childcare: AlphaBEST will NOT be open for before-school care but will operate as normal for after-school services.
  • School dismissal times: Schools will dismiss students at normal times. Bus drop-off times in neighborhoods and parent pick-up times at schools will also be on a regular schedule.
  • Breakfast: Breakfast will not be served.
  • Futures Lab: All Futures Lab classes are canceled due to the delayed start and varied schedules at home high schools. The Lab campus will be open when high school open, and teachers will be on-site and on-duty.
  • Students who take classes at Front Range Community College or Colorado State University should contact their instructors directly or refer to the respective institution’s website for information about FRCC and CSU schedules due to inclement weather.
