Severe Weather Conditions and School Closings

JMP will be closed if Douglas County Schools or Parker area schools are closed because of weather conditions. To determine if JMP is closed or on a delayed start, parents need to:

  • Watch Channel 9 Television or go on
  • Check our website
  • Check the Douglas County School District website at
  • Call the Douglas County School District Weather Hotline at 303-387-7669

When Douglas County Schools have a delayed-start morning due to bad weather conditions, morning classes at JMP will be cancelled and the afternoon classes will meet at their normal time. T/TH classes will run an hour and a half late. If Douglas County Schools announce that they will close schools early in the afternoon (early dismissal due to bad weather conditions), then JMP afternoon classes will be cancelled. After four missed school days due to weather, the Preschool Advisory Committee will consider extending the school year. The number of days extended will be determined by the PAC; they will not exceed the total number of days missed and may be specific to Monday/ Wednesday/Friday or Tuesday/Thursday classes.

In the event an early closing is necessary, parents will be contacted to make arrangements to pick up their child by a designated time. JMP will not close its doors until all children have been picked up. No deductions nor credits to tuition for closing due to weather conditions will be made.
