Please allow a little more time to get to the Coliseum as there are some detours and/or road closures around the area. Check the Denver Coliseum website HERE to get updates on the closures and detours.

The following must be completed and verified on your checkout sheet to participate in the graduation ceremony:
- Completed ICAP/Naviance Requirements
- Fees paid in full due to Treasurer
- 92% attendance rate (see below)
- Signatures from all teachers confirming passing grade
- Signature from Counselor confirming the requirements above
In order to participate in the graduation ceremony, seniors must have a 92% attendance rate as of May 14. If your current attendance is below 92%, you should have already been contacted by a GWHS administrator to ensure you have a plan in place that permits participation in the graduation ceremony.
For seniors below the required 92% attendance rate, Saturday School began April 6. Saturday School occurred from 8:00am – 12:00pm each Saturday until May 11. For each Saturday School attended, seniors received an attendance rate increase of 0.5%. Combined with improved second semester attendance and Saturday School attendance credits, seniors should have been able to reach the minimum requirement of 92% attendance.
