Spring General Information

Some information to keep in mind as we move through spring. 

Spring Break
  • This Friday, March 17th is a "No School Day" for students and there will be No EBOP Classes
  • Spring Break is March 20th - 24th and there will be No EBOP Classes
  • Regular classes will resume Monday, March 27th

Testing days

We encourage your child to attend regular EBOP classes in the morning during the up coming Testing days. It is a wonderful way to wake up their brains and get those neurons firing! As long as buses are running and school is in session, we will have regular EBOP classes.


Anyone who has lived in Colorado for a while knows the weather can change in the blink of an eye. Spring can bring some of our heaviest snow storms. Please keep in mind,  If Douglas County Schools have a "Late Start" or "School is Cancelled" due to weather conditions, there will be NO EBOP classes
