Aspen School District cancels classes for Friday after overnight snow

Staff report

The Aspen School District has canceled all classes for Friday because of the overnight snowstorm that rolled through the area.

The district sent out a message early Friday morning saying that school “will not be in session today due to harsh winter driving conditions.”

A winter storm is forecast to drop up to a foot of snow in some areas around Aspen. The snow started about 8 p.m. Thursday and continued overnight.

According to the district policy: “When schools are closed all scheduled activities in the school building are canceled and sports events and practices are postponed.”

The snow day means a four-day weekend for local students as schools are closed Monday because of the Martin Luther King Jr. Day holiday.
