Due to the icy and windy weather in Mesa County, School District 51 is delaying the start times for all schools on Tuesday, January 10, 2017. Buses will run two hours later with the delay.

Mesa County School District 51 released the following on their website on Thursday afternoon:

All District 51 schools will have a 2 hour delayed start Tuesday, Jan. 10, 2017, and morning kindergarten and D51 preschool are canceled Tuesday. The delay is due to weather forecasts that predict we may have conditions Tuesday morning similar to the ones we had this morning, with projections of rain and high winds overnight. Extended Hours is canceling morning and afternoon kindergarten enrichment and Extended Hours programming for Tuesday morning. Updates will be posted on www.d51schools.org, and our Facebook and Twitter pages as they become available.

Be sure to keep current on school closings and road conditions in the morning in case worsening weather causes a complete closure.
