AURORA, Colo. (CBS) – Aurora Public School Superintendent Rico Munn announced the district will not require remote learning on snow days.

On the APS website, Munn addressed the district’s community. He said Aurora schools took into consideration more than 22,000 responses to a snow day survey along with potential instructional benefit for students. Level of stress for staff and families for remote learning and possibly extending the school year was also taken into account.
