Inclement Weather Procedures

We want to remind you of our procedures regarding school operations during inclement weather.

MPCS makes every effort to remain open and to continue operating as long as we can safely do so. The safety of our students, parents, guardians, faculty, and staff is our primary concern.

Use Your Best Judgment
If you have any concerns about traveling to or from MPCS and independently decide to pick up your children early from school or keep them home from school, we respect that decision. If you decide to keep your child home, please notify the attendance office of your decision by calling 303-728-9100, ext. 1.

Late Starts
Sometimes, we will begin school late. We will do our best to communicate that decision as early as possible on our website (, via ParentSquare or School Messenger, and on Channel 9News. Generally, JeffCo does not use late starts so a decision to start late will be communicated on behalf of MPCS.

Closure Procedures

MPCS will normally follow the lead of Jefferson County Schools, as our location places us within the county’s transportation routes. Therefore, if Jefferson County Schools are publicizing a county-wide closure, MPCS will close, as well. If our decision is different than JeffCo’s, the closure will be communicated via our website, ParentSquare, School Messenger, and on Channel 9News.

Event Cancellations
If we need to cancel events due to inclement weather, those decisions will always be posted on our web site’s home page. Sometimes, we have to cancel events when threatening weather is predicted after school hours. To be safe, please be sure to check our website before you get on the road.

As parents, you are asked to err on the side of caution. If you deem it unwise to travel or allow your child to travel, please take into consideration the conditions in your area. Again, safety is our first concern.

As always, please stay informed and travel safely.
