Senior Update from Principal Hill

Dear Boulder High School Seniors and Families,

Thank you for another great school year. Despite the many challenges we faced—and those we are still working through—your leadership and partnership have gotten us to the finish line. I can’t tell you how thrilled we are to be able to honor you all next week as we lead up to our commencement ceremony on Saturday morning, May 22. To ensure that everyone continues to be safe and can celebrate at the commencement ceremony, I ask that you read through the information provided and reach out if you have additional questions. 

Prom: Saturday, May 15, 7:00–11:00 pm at the Denver Aquarium

Prom is always an exciting night for our students and families. I want to take some time to encourage our seniors to have an incredible night, but in an alcohol- and drug-free way, and to adhere to all Covid guidelines. We want to ensure the memories created are positive ones that we can all look back on and smile.

By working together, I know that we can keep our students safe while providing a fun, memorable evening. On behalf of Boulder High, I would like to thank you in advance for your continued partnership and support. As always, if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me or any other administrator. 

Graduation: Saturday, May 22, 2021, 8:30 am at Recht Field

We look forward to celebrating the Class of 2021. Over the past few months, the Boulder Valley School District has been in continuous communication with our public health agencies regarding the commencement ceremonies. Our public health partners reviewed our plan to ensure that it aligns with the state’s Outdoor Event Guidance. Next week, we will send additional information concerning parking for graduation as well as other important details. Please note that participants (students, staff, and family members) will not be permitted to attend if they are ill, are quarantined, or have a probable or confirmed case of COVID-19. 

Senior Checkout

Starting Monday, May 17, seniors can pick up their orange Checkout Sheet from the treasurer. To receive your cap and gown on Thursday, May 20, you must complete your Checkout Sheet and have it stamped by the treasurer no later than 2:00 pm on Wednesday, May 19.

Senior Bulletin 

Please see the attached Senior Bulletin. Also, note that the Senior Sunrise is now on Thursday, May 20, at 5:30 am.

Again, next week watch for additional graduation information concerning parking, seating, and other details. As always, please do not hesitate to contact me or any other administrator with questions you may have. On behalf of the Boulder High School staff, we look forward to celebrating the class of 2021.
