Snow Day Policy

HSC follows Jeffco schools for closures, so you can check local news stations and Jeffco’s website for school closures. We will also contact you using the Jeffco automated system, which uses your information from Jeffco Connect so please make sure that is current. It is HIGHLY recommended that you select Text, Phone, and Email under Notifications.

However, our staff and families drive from all over to attend our program, so there are times when HSC might have a delayed start, early release, or no classes outside of Jeffco’s decision. When that happens, you will be notified using the JeffcoSchool Messenger system through Jeffco Connect.

Our families safety is our number one priority. If you do not feel safe driving to HSC on a snowy day at school day, please stay home and do what’s best for your family. We will excuse all absences as long as you email us at

We will always try to notify you as early as we possibly can if we have a snow day. However, sometimes the snow accumulation becomes more severe during the commute and a decision has to be made to best protect both students and staff. In order to make sure you are being notified as soon as a decision is made, please make sure your Jeffco Connect Account is up to date, and your Notifications Preferences are set to Phone, Email, and Text.
