Local school district cancels school Monday

The Summit School District has canceled classes at all nine of its schools for Monday, April 18. Many of the district's staff returning from spring break trips had flights into DIA canceled due to the sudden spring snowstorm.

Students of the Summit School District returning from spring break will get a bonus day off on Monday, April 18.

Due to the spring snowstorm that blanketed Denver, as well as the High Country, many members of the local district’s staff had their flights back from out of town into Denver International Airport canceled and will not make it back to the county in time for Monday classes. Across its six elementary schools, the middle school as well as Summit High and Snowy Peaks High, the district does not have enough substitutes to hold school on Monday either.

“In checking in with out staff, we have inventoried the flight cancellation impact,” Bethany Massey, the district’s director of assessment and technology, said in a statement. “In some schools, as many as 50 percent of staff have been unable to get flights home.”

The normal class schedule for all nine schools will resume on Tuesday, April 19.
