Sterling Public Schools is canceling school today, Tuesday January 23rd. This decision is based on the snow and ice wintery mix that impacted our area last night and this morning. That poor weather left our country roads extremely icy and almost impossible for our school buses to navigate. I am aware that this decision is difficult on our families, and that some of our main roads are drivable. Please know that I made this decision this morning based on the condition of our district’s country roads and would not have made it if they weren’t so severe. We bus nearly 60% of our students, therefore, if we had school today it would have negatively impacted the safety of our students and staff.

This is Sterling Public Schools emailing to inform you that school is in session today, Monday, January 22nd, but due to icy road conditions caused by the inclement weather, we will be running our 2-hour late start schedule this morning. This means all of our schools will start two hours later than normal, and all of our bus routes will be running two hours later than normal, as well. This decision is based on the National Weather Service’s Severe report of a wintry mix of rain, sleet, freezing rain and snow across our area. With these conditions, our country roads are extremely dangerous, making bus routes difficult to navigate. Due to the 2-hour late start schedule, breakfast will not be served at any of the schools this morning. Additionally, there will be no AM PreK Program classes at Franklin Elem. and Jefferson Elem. this morning.

Sterling Public Schools has canceled for tomorrow, Tuesday January 16th. This decision is based on the extreme cold windchill temperatures that will reach 30 to 40 below zero tomorrow morning in Sterling. In fact, the National Weather Service has issued both a Severe Wind Chill Advisory and a Hazardous Weather Advisory for Sterling. We wanted to communicate this decision tonight so our families could make plans for child care tomorrow. Stay safe and stay warm!

Our very first Future Educator Club alumni winter social was a blast! We had current SHS students, current college students, current teaching staff, AND retired educators all under one roof . There was a 55 year graduation gap between our oldest and youngest grads, and it’s so exciting to think that while teaching changes all the time, the heart of WHO teaches does not. We even hosted a contract signing for one of our graduating alumni who will be teaching for SPS next year!
