The Weld Re-8 District will be closed Monday, November 23rd-Friday, November 27th.
We will resume regular business hours Monday, November 30th.
Dear Weld Re-8 Parents and Guardians:
Each year, our community experiences severe weather events that may result in the closure or delay of our schools. Student safety is the first priority in making decisions regarding school closure. However, parents, students, and employees must realize that we live in Colorado where driving in some snow and bad weather conditions is reasonable and expected, and school cannot be called off whenever there is the slightest amount of snow and/or ice.
When forecasts are definitive, the district will close or delay school with as much advance notice as possible. When forecasts are less definitive, we will monitor conditions closely, including traveling parts of the district and consult with area officials prior to making a decision to close or delay schools. In these instances, we will make every effort to communicate with you no later than 5:30 A.M.
In the event we announce a delayed start due to inclement weather, we will start school 2 hours later than regularly scheduled start times. Bus schedules will also start 2 hours later.
In some cases of severe weather, schools may be closed early or afterschool programs, athletics and other activities may be cancelled.
Delayed starts due to inclement weather and school closure notifications are made via School Messenger (automatic phone calls), the district website, social media and media including newspapers, television and radio stations. Parents, students and employees should always assume that there would be school as scheduled, unless they see an announcement on the website, on TV, hear an announcement on radio, or receive a phone call as part of the official messenger system.
When the district remains open, but you believe that weather conditions are not safe for your student to attend school, please feel keep your student(s) home. Parents have the ultimate responsibility for the safety of their children; therefore, if a parent feels it is too dangerous for his/her child to go to school, even if he/she rides the bus, they may keep them home and the absence will be excused.
If you have additional questions or concerns regarding weather-related closures or delayed starts due to inclement weather, please feel free to contact the Administration Building (303-857-3200) or Transportation Office (303-857-7370).
When it becomes necessary to close school due to weather conditions and/or mechanical conditions, the district will post the information on our website (www.weld8.org) and broadcast information over the following television and radio stations:
