Updates on the condition of school facilities by district maintenance & operations staff.
While a team of district staff works to monitor and collect all of this information, the person ultimately responsible for the decision is the superintendent.
Once a decision is made to change the operating schedule, the district contacts all parents and staff by phone via District phone messenger alerting everyone to the schedule change. Please verify your contact information is current so you can receive the emergency messages. The district also places information on its website at Weld County School District RE-1. The local media will also provide information about Weld RE-1 Schools on its news feeds.
In the event that schools in the district would need to be closed due to weather or other circumstances, Parents and staff will be notified by phone and it will be posted on the Weld RE-1 Website. In addition, the following news media outlets will also be notified in the event of a school closure:
KUNC FM 91.5 The Greeley Tribune KFKA AM 1310
Channel 4 (CBS4/KCNC Denver) Channel 7 (7 News KMGH)
Channel 9 (9 News KUSA) Channel 13 (Fox 31)
If circumstances allow a decision will be made by the Superintendent no later than 5:00 A.M. and communicated to staff/parents by 5:30 A.M. In the event of a closure:
· All schools in the district will be closed
· No transportation will be provided
· All school activities are canceled
· Please monitor the district website and the local news for updates regarding plans for the next school day. In the event it is necessary to continue a closure or implement a delayed start for the following day, you will receive a call from the district messenger system.
The decision to delay the start of a school day means that weather or other circumstances will not allow (or it is not safe) for the school day to start on time.
As with school closures decisions the Superintendent will make the decision no later than 5 A.M. and communicate with parents and staff by 5:30 A.M. if circumstances allow. In Weld RE-1:
