Colorado Free College Application Day - October 13, 2020

Seniors, did you know that on October 13 every college in Colorado is waiving their application fee!!! Be sure to have your college applications ready to be submitted on the 13th!

If you need letters of recommendation from teachers, ask them NOW!

Athletic Eligibility

Students must be enrolled in at least 3 of 4 classes to be considered "full time" and eligible to compete in athletics. Out of those classes a student may not be failing more than one to be academically eligible to play. As the quarter approaches, please remember this is a semester transcripted grade, meaning that students who fail more than 1 class will be ineligible for the upcoming sports season until a regain date.


School comes first!
