Denver Public schools are reopening Tuesday for the first time since a deadly tornado that claimed more than 100 lives in August.
Schools Superintendent John Pazda announced that students and staff will be allowed to return to classes starting at 6 a.m.
Pazda says he was surprised to hear of the school reopening on Tuesday because it was the first day of school in over a month, which he says is normal.
“It’s very encouraging.
I think we are on a good path,” he said.”
I think it will be very hard for us to continue to do this without students,” he added.
Parsons schools are open for lunch and lunch periods from 3 to 7 a.ms. and regular lunch from 4 to 8 a.mi. and are closed for Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s and Christmas Eve.
Piles of snow and freezing rain hit Colorado schools early this week.
The Denver school district reported that 1,300 students were impacted.
