Weather Delays and Closures
Winter weather will be here before we know it! When extreme weather hits, Cherry Creek Schools officials decide whether to close, delay or hold school as scheduled, based on the safety of students and staff.
 
If classes are going to be delayed or cancelled, the information is posted on the district’s website, www.cherrycreekschools.org, sent to families via Blackboard Connect phone calls, and sent to local media outlets. Families can also call the district’s Weather Hotline at 720-554-4701.
