This is a message from Laramie County School District 1 on Tuesday, March 16th at 1:30 p.m. For the safety of all due to ongoing hazardous conditions in the community, and to allow Public Works staff to clear roadways, the district will be closed on Wednesday, March 17.

Any closure or delay information beyond Wednesday will be communicated prior to 6 AM on Thursday, March 18th.
St. Mary's School, all LCSD schools, City and County government offices will all be closed for another day to give snow removal crews time to better clear the roads. The roads are still very bad, so I am encouraging you to stay home and avoid traveling at this point. Please stay safe and know that you are in our prayers!
The Laramie County Commissioners, the Mayor of Cheyenne, and the State of Wyoming have placed the Level 1 Emergency Snow Plan into effect for Cheyenne and Laramie County.
