If you see St. Vrain Valley School District is closed, Flagstaff Academy is included.

Inclement Weather Policy 

Flagstaff Academy follows the School Closure policy of the St. Vrain Valley School District.
  • The most common reason for school closures is blowing snow and severe weather.
  • When forecasts are definitive, the district will close or delay school with as much advance notice as possible. When forecasts are less definitive, we will monitor conditions closely and consult with county and state officials prior to making a decision to close or delay schools. In these instances, we will make every effort to communicate with you no later than 5:30 a.m. on the school day in question.
  • In the event of a delayed start due to inclement weather, school will start 2.5 hours later than regularly scheduled start times.
Delayed starts due to inclement weather and school closure notifications are made via the following communication systems: the Infinite Campus Messenger notification system, our school website, social media, local and state media including newspapers, television and radio stations, and updates posted to the SVVSD Newsline 303-682-7387.

When the district remains open, but you believe that weather conditions in your specific area are not safe for your student to attend school, please feel free to contact our school’s attendance clerk to obtain an excused absence for your student at [email protected].


When severe weather conditions cause you to keep your student at home, the student will be able to make up any missed schoolwork without penalty.
