Snow day for Boulder Valley schools Tuesday; Denver, Westminster, Jeffco go fully remote

After making a change to its snow day policy last week, Denver Public Schools gave students a snow day Monday, but it's back to school Tuesday.

DENVER — Boulder Valley School District (BVSD) is having a snow day Tuesday, and Denver Public Schools (DPS), which had a snow day Monday, plans to keep schools closed Tuesday, but students will go fully remote.

It comes after what is officially the biggest Colorado snowstorm since 2016 closed multiple school districts along the Front Range Monday. 

BVSD said the district recognizes many families and staff are still facing deep snow on side streets, which would make it difficult, if near impossible, to get to school Tuesday.

There will be no remote learning, BVSD said. All before and after-school activities are also canceled, as well as COVID-19 mobile testing sites.

According to the DPS' snow day policy, which was revised last week, if the district decides to announce multiple inclement weather days, students will pivot to remote learning on the second day.

DPS made that change to its snow day policy last week after some students staged a "snow day" revolution two weeks ago, on a day when some school districts declared a snow day, but DPS chose to have a remote-learning day instead.

Other school districts, including Jeffco and Mapleton Public Schools, opted to go remote on Monday in lieu of canceling class altogether. 

Westminster and Jefferson County public schools will go fully remote Tuesday. 

Douglas County School District will remain closed Tuesday. However, there are no classes this week because the district is on spring break.
