Schools closed on Wednesday

Dear WPS Community,

March weather is always difficult to predict, but the latest forecasts say that Wednesday, will bring blizzard conditions to the metro area during the late morning and afternoon hours.

Because of the uncertainty of the forecast and because safety is always our highest priority, Westminster Public Schools and many of the surrounding school districts are cancelling school on Wednesday. We don’t make this decision lightly because we know how important it is to have our students in class whenever possible.

Weather conditions in the early morning hours may appear very manageable, but experience tells us that trying to coordinate an early release for students because of afternoon weather changes is very difficult. There are too many moving parts to ensure that all children are safe.

We are making the decision as early as possible to give you plenty of advance notice.

Stay safe and warm!
