SALT LAKE CITY — Due to weather, many schools across the state are on two-hour delayed starts Monday, Jan. 30.

Delayed starts in the Logan City School District

Beginning with Logan City School District, the district made a Facebook post on Sunday, Jan. 29, declaring late starts for its schools.

The school district’s half-day kindergarten and preschool sessions are canceled. Full-day kindergarten will go on with a two-hour delayed start.

The district says students will be released from school at the usual time.

Delayed starts in the Box Elder School District

Along with Logan, Box Elder School District took to its Facebook page to announce a delayed start for its schools.

According to the post, the delayed start is due to “winds and drifting snow … and incredibly cold temperatures” in Northern Box Elder County.

The district attached a document explaining what a delayed start looks like.

Delayed start for schools in Dugway

Yet another delayed start was announced on the Tooele County School District’s Facebook page Sunday evening.

According to the post, only Dugway schools (k-12) are on a delayed start. The district says this is due to “drifting snow, wind, and ice.”

The school day will begin at 10 a.m. with traveling teachers reporting at 9:30 a.m.

All other schools a part of the Tooele County School District are remaining on their regular schedules at this time.

Delayed starts in the Cache County School District

Cache County School District joins other districts in announcing a delayed start for its schools.

Taking to Facebook, the district says all of its schools will start “exactly two hours later than normal.”

According to the post, there is no a.m. preschool or kindergarten. Schools are being released at their regular times.
