Uniform return will be Thurs, 10/31

Uniform check in will be Thursday, 10/31, after school in the counseling center.  We will be there until 2:15.  If you want to volunteer for uniform check in, please text Ruth at 303-525-3829.

Now that you have had a fabulous snow day and time to wash and pack your uniform, please bring your uniform to avoid the $100 charge on your student account.  As you know, we need every uniform to be returned so we will have enough uniforms for next year.

Happy Halloween!

Please bring your uniform during one of these times to avoid the $100 charge on your student account.  As you know, we need every uniform to be returned so we will have enough uniforms for next year.
