I thought it was very interesting how few school districts were delayed this morning...especially after last night's commute. After getting home from school Monday, I would have bet my bottom dollar on a 2 hour delay this morning and was floored when no one, not D49, D20, D38--no one was delayed except a couple private and out of towners. We loving laugh at our schools for closing and delaying at the site of a snowflake...think they finally overheard and are changing their ways???

We were pretty shocked too. We live over in D-49 and we were 99% sure that we would have a 2 hour delay. I even let the kids stay up an extra hour. They were not happy at 6:30am this morning. Commute wasn't too bad, for a native!

I think they coordinate with the county plows. Maybe if the county can't provide sufficient plowing by the time the buses get rolling then they delay - just a guess. I live right on a bus route and the plows were on it a little after 4AM.

Also, my drive to Schriever from Monument via Falcon wasn't icy just some snow pack but my colleagues' drive from COS to Schriever via CO-94 was icy. I guess it depends on the local roads.

Default Not D-11

D-11 rarely closes or delays. I think a big reason for that is the number of working families (2 parents working) is higher in D-11. I think the district really tries to be sensitive and really tries not to delay or cancel unless there is a high degree of danger. I often see D-49 and D-20 delayed or out, when my kids are on their way to school.
