Congratulations Seniors!

Parents of Garfield Re-2 Seniors. . .

Parents of the class of 2020 have established "Adopt-a-Senior" Facebook pages to honor the classes of 2020 at Rifle High School and Coal Ridge High School.

To ensure that every senior is honored, please ask to join the appropriate group and provide the information for your senior. The administrators will approve you and you will be able to post your information.

Again, these groups have been established by parents and not the schools. They are hoping to honor every senior.
