We are already looking forward to welcoming students for the 2018-2019 school year with our annual Back to School Check-in. It will be exciting to see familiar faces and to get to know those who are new to our Boulder High community. All students must attend Check-in for the 2018-2019 school year. At Check-in, we confirm that families have completed their online district update (see ADU below) or help those who need it; take student photos for IDs, the yearbook, and for ordering; give locker assignments (optional); and receive senior applications for parking permits. PAC as well as other boosters and groups will also be at Check-in to collect donations and sell Boulder High gear.
First day of school for freshmen is August 15 (9:00 am start); first day for all students is August 16 (8:00 am start). School supplies lists will be handed out by teachers during the first days of class. Orientation for students in grades 10 thru 12 who are new to Bouler High is on Wednesday, Aug. 15, 1:00-2:30 pm in the Library.
What follows is step-by-step information for Check-in. You may do all the online steps at once or start and stop as you wish; however, all online steps should be completed before you attend Check-in. Check-in will be held August 13 and August 14 (see Step 4 below for a breakdown of grades and times).
Step 1: Complete Your Annual Data Update (ADU)
In April, primary household contacts should have received an email from Boulder Valley School District prompting you to update your information (called the Annual Data Update) on Infinite Campus. If you have not yet done this for your student(s), please complete this process prior to Check-in, if possible. We will have computers available at Check-in for those who need help. Click here for more information on the ADU process. Only the parent/guardian who is listed as the primary contact can complete the ADU.
To complete your family's ADU--or to confirm that it is complete--log into your Infinite Campus Portal and select the link on the left-hand column titled "Annual Data Update ADU." Students can still get an ID and attend Check-in even if the ADU is not complete.
BVSD will be hosting a Help Center at the BVSD Ed Center located at 6500 Arapahoe Boulder, CO, 80303, for anyone needing assistance with the Annual Data Update (ADU), Online Registration (OLR), and/or Free & Reduced Lunch applications. The Help Center will be open August 6-17, 8am-4:30pm, at the BVSD Ed Center (6500 Arapahoe Rd, Boulder). For more information or assistance, you can contact the Enrollment Help Desk at 720-561-5247 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Step 2: Payment Information (Opens July 2, 2018)

Parent Advisory Council (PAC)
The BHS Parent Advisory Council (PAC) is a 501(c)3 parent organization. Every BHS parent and guardian is automatically a member. Every student, classroom, teacher, and administrator is positively impacted by the contributions that PAC makes to the high school. From microscopes to chrome books, PAC grants provide financial support for faculty and staff, helping them meet needs that would otherwise be unmet with the current BVSD BHS budget. Funds go directly to teachers and staff for the benefit of our students! The recommended family donation is $185; but please give what you can. Every donation helps! Connect, Contribute, Get Informed, Volunteer, or Have Questions? Contact email@example.com.

Please take a minute to register with the Instrumental Music Parents Association (IMPA) so that we can keep you up to date regarding concerts; scholarship, volunteer, and fundraising opportunities; competitions; class trips and more. Go to www.bhs-impa.org to register. Funds raised by IMPA provide approximately 90 percent of the non-salary budget for instrumental music education at Boulder High School.
