Announcements of school closings due to emergency situations or bad
weather will be made at the earliest possible time on the local radio
station, district’s website at www.lajuntaschools.org, along with an
emergency phone notification.
Two Hour Delay
When necessary, East Otero School District will implement a two-hour
delay procedure. In this instance, school will begin at 10:00 a.m.
Administration will notify the La Junta radio station by 6:00 a.m. on
the day school closing is in question. Please tune your radio to 92.1
FM or 1400 AM to hear the announcement or check the district’s website.
If school is placed on a two-hour delay, the buses will pick up
students two hours later. The students will be at school by 10:00 a.m.
No breakfast will be served on that day. Parents will need to continue
listening to the radio or look at district’s website to check on the
status of the two-hour delay. If the weather or roads do not improve by
9:00 a.m., the school district will again notify the radio station,
website, and emergency phone notification if school will be cancelled
for the entire day.
