In a message to parents late Tuesday afternoon Laramie County School District 1 announced that there will be no school on Wednesday, March 13, 2019, in anticipation of the coming winter storm. This includes the public elementary, Jr and High schools in Cheyenne.

In anticipation of predicted hazardous blizzard conditions, Laramie County School District 1 will be closed on Wednesday, March 13. This decision has been made after consultation with the National Weather Service, Laramie County Emergency Management and other local agencies. School buildings and district facilities will be closed. Bus routes will not run and all activities have been canceled. Although this does not follow typical closure procedures, district officials made the decision early due to anticipated storm impacts, which include heavy snow and sustained wind gusts at the time when school would release. Our primary concern is the safety of our students, parents and staff. Any closure or delay information beyond Wednesday will be communicated prior to 6 AM Thursday, March 14th.

Laramie County District 2 is also closed Wednesday and will make up the day on March 22.

Laramie County Head Start will also be closed Wednesday.

A Blizzard Warning is in effect for Cheyenne and surrounding areas Wednesday and Thursday.
