Weather forecasts today look definitive for rain and thunderstorms, and to ensure the safety and comfort of our 2017 graduates and their guests, we will be hosting our graduation ceremony in our gymnasium. As space is more limited inside, every student has been given four tickets (included in their graduate robe packet) to distribute to family members or friends to have a guaranteed seat inside the main ceremony. You must have a ticket to ensure a seat in the main ceremony.
We are making final preparations for tomorrow’s graduation ceremony and are very excited to celebrate this significant milestone in the lives of our students and their families. As we all know, the only thing that is consistent with spring weather in Colorado is its unpredictability. We are keeping an eye on the forecast and will notify families by 7:30 a.m.
