Well, at least today, all it takes is a forecast of snow. With it only just beginning to snow in northern El Paso county, school has already been canceled in Lewis Palmer District 38 (pink at the top of the map above), Academy District 20 (blue near the top of the map above), and Falcon District 49 (yellow at the top of the map above). It’s fairly often that those schools are delayed or canceled; the north and east parts of the county tend to get more snow, and eastern El Paso county tends to drift a lot.
Still, seems a bit premature to cancel based on the forecast of 6-13 inches when it hasn’t even started snowing! Last year there were several times where a huge storm was predicted and we got nothing (as well as a few times they never saw it coming).
I’m sure the students don’t mind, though!
