Sterling Public Schools will release students two hours early today, Thursday February 4th, due to inclimate weather. As a result of this decision, busses will be taking students home two hours earlier than normal, and all evening activities will be cancelled. For example, if your school's dismissal time this year is 1:30pm, today it will dismiss at 11:30am. Additionally, there will be no afternoon PreK classes offered today. Please know, school is cancelled today for all PreK-12th grade students, so students will not have remote learning responsibilities this afternoon, including those students in our At Home Learning program.
Due to the National Weather Service’s forecast of a severe winter storm, including large amounts of snow, ice, and high winds, Sterling Public Schools will have a Remote Learning Day tomorrow, Monday, January 25th for all students PreK-12. Remote Learning means students will learn from home with their digital devices and not report to the school campus. Students will receive communication from their schools regarding additional details. Again, students should not report to school tomorrow, but will learn remotely. Debido al clima, todos los estudiantes de SPS serán aprendizaje remoto el Lunes, 25 de Enero.
Just a reminder that school resumes for all students on January 6, 2021. Welcome Back!
