COVID-19 Response Dial

This week, the district is in the yellow zone, which requires every student, staff member, and visitor to wear a face covering. The COVID-19 Response Dial and protocol takes into consideration the community COVID-19 vaccination rate, the Adams 14 employee and student COVID-19 vaccination rate, and our community COVID-19 transmission rate. The Adams 14 COVID-19 Response Dial and protocol will vary based on the aforementioned data, and our response will be clearly articulated in a Green Zone, Yellow Zone, and Red Zone.


School Closures on Thursday, Nov. 11, and Friday, Nov. 12, 2021

All schools will be closed on Friday, Nov. 12. The district closure on Friday, Nov. 12, will be treated as a snow day. 

Similar to school districts throughout Colorado, Adams 14 has been facing staffing shortages this year, especially with our substitute teachers and transportation and nutrition services departments. We would like to thank our school and district staff, who have gone above and beyond to cover the staffing shortages. 

Additionally, all district schools will be closed on Thursday, Nov. 11, in observance of Veterans Day. Adams 14 thanks all our veterans for their incredible sacrifice, commitment, and dedication to our country.

As a reminder, meal, transportation and child care services; school clubs; and athletics will be closed on Nov. 11 and Nov. 12.
