Please work with our staff at the Community Resource Center if you are in need of additional assistance and/or resources to access lessons in our online environment.
Summer Learning: The St. Vrain Curriculum Department has compiled a number of online resources for students to continue engaging in learning activities over the summer.
High School Graduation
For our graduating seniors and their families, we know how especially disheartening these past few weeks have been, and we want to assure you that we are doing everything we can to honor and celebrate the culmination of your 13 years of hard work that is marked by the important milestone of graduation. To this end, we are planning to move all graduation ceremonies for our traditional high schools to Saturday, July 25, 2020 at 9:00 a.m. Olde Columbine, SVOGA, Universal High School, and Main Street families will be contacted by your principal in the next week with your new graduation date. These events will mostly mirror the logistics and level of celebration experienced by previous St. Vrain Valley graduates and their families, and may include some social distancing measures as well. Within the next couple of weeks, your high school principal will communicate detailed information about graduation and additional celebratory events that may take place during the week leading up to July 25. As you know, this serious health crisis continues to evolve, and while these are our plans at this time, it is possible that things could change by July 25. Accordingly, we will keep you regularly informed.
