UPDATE: Denver Public Schools announced that campuses and offices will be open Thursday, Jan. 19.

Sorry, kids.

Our original story follows below.


 

Kids, grab your hot chocolate and blanket and break out your sled.

Parents, good luck.

The snow is here, and it’s not stopping anytime soon. Denver Public Schools has declared a snow day on Wednesday, Jan. 18.

That means no clubs, no sports, no class for the students. And for adults, there’s nobody to watch the kids, so take note, bosses.

All DPS schools and offices, including Emily Griffith Technical College, are shut down.

Thursday might also be a snow day.

Originally, DPS said in a statement sent Tuesday night that if the shutdown crept into Thursday, online learning would resume. But it turns out that was wrong.

Here’s the latest from the School District:

“Correction: The previous snow message shared that DPS will transition to a remote learning and work day if the District calls multiple inclement weather days. This is not correct. DPS will not transition to remote learning if there are consecutive snow days called.”

Update: This story has been updated to reflect the school district’s correction on its policy.
