Weather Closure Procedure

In an effort to standardize our response and to ensure everyone's safety, we follow this protocol​: If the schools in Pueblo West District 70 are closed due to bad weather, the inspection stations will also be closed. ​If the schools are on two hour delay, our inspection stations are also on two-hour delay. 

The information regarding school closings in D70 is widely reported on local television and radio stations. Closing notices are also available at This applies to the Pueblo West schools in District 70 and not the mountain schools.

As always, inspection stations may be closed early due to adverse weather conditions or unexpected circumstances.
