Dear D49 Families,
At the end of May we will safely honor and celebrate the D49 Class of 2021. We have learned our traditional partners at the Broadmoor World Arena will not host graduation ceremonies this year, so we will build on the experience from our previous commencement season, relocating many of our ceremonies to UCHealth Stadium, home of the Rocky Mountain Vibes. Our ceremonies will still take place Memorial Day Weekend.
The unplanned shift in location is based partly on capacity concerns expressed by El Paso County Public Health and the World Arena. In addition, the World Arena has been designated as a site for upcoming mass COVID-19 vaccination clinics, the dates of which will preclude the World Arena from welcoming the Class of 2021 and their guests for graduation ceremonies this year.
Although the late notification from the World Arena will require changing the location and schedule, we have secured dates in the same weekend to stay as close to our schedule as possible, and to preserve the plans of families who’ve made travel arrangements to attend. The updated schedule is as follows:
- Vista Ridge High School: Sunday, May 30, 8:00 a.m.
- Falcon High School: Sunday, May 30, 11:00 a.m.
- Sand Creek High School: Monday, May 31, 8:00 a.m.
We are pleased to have the opportunity to revisit UCHealth stadium in partnership with the Rocky Mountain Vibes Baseball Club. Because it is an outdoor venue with a large seating capacity, we can stage a graduation ceremony and safely welcome guests as we did for the Class of 2020. The Vibes are also applying for the EPCPH five-star large venue rating, which if granted, and in combination with overall improving health conditions, could expand the venue capacity by thousands.
Like their predecessors, the Class of 2021 has risen to every challenge in this unprecedented season of learning, transitioning between multiple learning models, enduring adjusted and abbreviated sports seasons as well as the overall loss of the traditional senior-year experience. Although we are emerging from the pandemic responsible for this upheaval, we recognize the D49 brand of agility and resilience will see us through to the very end.
Please continue to watch for more information from your school about ceremony specifics. Updates will be shared as soon as we have them. We look forward to celebrating together the end of one season and the beginning of the next for the D49 Class of 2021!
We thank you for your trust and understanding,
Director of Communications
