The in-person graduation ceremony that will be held on June 23, 2020 at the District 20 Stadium at 9 a.m. We are excited that up to two family members will be able to attend with the graduates (and sit with them on the field). Outside of the two family household members, no other spectators will be permitted to attend the ceremony or remain on District 20 property. The ceremony will be streamed live for all to watch at the link below:

A pre-recorded digital version of the graduation ceremony will also be released at 3 p.m. on June 23rd for family and friends to download as a keepsake. It will not be the same version as the live stream event.

In the event of inclement weather, the ceremony will be postponed to either June 29th or June 30th. If that is the case, new information will be provided once it is known.

UPDATE: Free Student Meals- Additional Locations

Yesterday we sent the below message regarding free meals for students during next week’s closure. In addition to the Academy District 20 locations listed in that communication, our students, along with all students from across the Pikes Peak Region, may visit any meal pick-up location. This means students do not need to visit district-specific meal pick-up locations, rather they can visit the location that is most convenient for them. The locations are listed in this link: https://tinyurl.com/School-Meals

March 14, 2020 Message about meals
Academy District 20 staff will be providing any student under the age of 18 with a FREE breakfast and lunch “brunch bag” on March 16 – 19, from 10 – 11 a.m.
Any student can receive one grab-and-go brunch bag per day and they do not need to attend the school where the food is picked-up. Also, students do not need to be accompanied by a parent or family member.
Those picking up a brunch bag should visit the most convenient pick-up location listed below. The brunch bag pick-up area at each school will be in either the bus or student drop-off parking lot.
The grab-and-go bags are intended to be taken offsite. The school will not be open for students to enter and there is no outside supervision of students.
