Preparing for Winter Weather - Colorado SKIES Academy

Preparing for Winter Weather

We want to encourage you and your family to join us in planning for winter-related weather that could cause a school delay, early dismissal or school cancelation. Colorado SKIES Academy will be using the following guidelines to make every effort to communicate early enough for safe travel as adjustments to regular family schedules. All of our communications are based on the information you provide us in PowerSchool.

Please make sure your contact information in PowerSchool under parent forms is accurate and up to date. In the event of a winter weather watch or warning, CSA will:

  • Send an email, text message and a phone call to notify all CSA families of a weather delay or cancelation.
  • There is a possibility school may have to close during the day. A text, email and phone call will notify you of this decision.  
  • CSA will notify local TV & radio stations with delays, early dismissal or closure announcements. This announcement will follow the CSA text, email and phone call. 
  • All afterschool programs will be canceled when school is closed or an early dismissal occurs.   

School closures, delays and early dismissals are decided as early as possible. Before deciding, we consult with a meteorologist and closely monitor road and weather conditions. We also consult with our authorizer, Cherry Creek School District. This decision is taken very seriously as the safety of our learners, families and staff is a top priority.
