CLEAR CREEK COUNTY, Colo. — Two school districts have canceled school Monday after a weekend snowstorm caused poor weather conditions and flight cancellations.

In a statement posted on the Summit School District website, because of staff being unable to return home after spring break, the district would not have enough staff or substitutes to hold school Monday.

Due to the untimely Denver snow storm, many of the Summit School District staff have had their return flights from Spring Break cancelled and have been unable to return home. In checking in with our staff we have inventoried the flight cancellation impact and in some schools, as many as 50% of staff have been unable to get flights home. As a result we will not have enough staff or substitutes to hold school tomorrow, Monday, April 18, 2016. We will resume classes at all schools on Tuesday, April 19, 2016.

According to the Clear Creek School District, inclement weather and hazardous road conditions contributed to the district’s decision to close schools Monday.

“Stay safe and enjoy the snow– as much as you can in April!” the Clear Creek School District posted on Facebook.
