Red Flag Days signifies school days where the temperature (including wind chill) is 25 degrees or lower.  To maintain consistency, each building shall use the KOAA WeatherBug-Widefield High School site to make the determination. If the temperature is 25 degrees or lower, students will be brought inside for before school recess.  If you drive your student(s) to school on cold days, we encourage you to drop them off as close to the morning bell as possible. Please make sure students are sent to school with appropriate outerwear during winter as we will have outdoor recess when weather permits.

Red Flags will be displayed at the following locations:  the flagpole, the school marquee.  All students will enter through the gym to go to their designated locations.
