Our Warriors Read! program invites all students — regardless of grade level or course — to select a text that best matches their reading preferences and reading levels to enjoy over the summer. This is optional unless your teacher or program has asked you to participate!
There is no assigned book, no written assignment, and no project. Just read a book that interests you. (Please note that some LA classes have required summer reading assignments. Students who are entering a class with required summer reading are welcome to participate in this program too!)
If students already have a book they want to read, that’s great! If not, we have curated a list of suggested titles by asking CHS staff members for book recommendations. Those suggestions as well as information about how to access books over the summer is located on our Summer Reading Website.

Save the Date! Check In will be held on campus August 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th.
Each day a different grade will be asked to stop by school to have their photo taken for their student badge. Students will be able to purchase parking permits, activity passes, etc. Families may also drop off medications (and corresponding forms) at that time. More details will be available in late July.
We will use the following schedule:
Tuesday, August 3 Freshmen
Wednesday, August 4 Sophomores
Thursday, August 5 Juniors
Friday, August 6 Seniors
Please attend Check In on your assigned date from 8:00am to 3:00pm.
This is an optional event - the primary focus being student photos. A make up photo day will be scheduled for later in fall semester.
Most paperwork and fee payments may all be handled online!
Please complete the Annual Data Update within Infinite Campus. This is required for all returning BVSD students.
Over the summer the RevTrak system will be updated and standardized across schools. Parents will be able to create one new account to access all their BVSD students' fees even if they attend multiple BVSD schools. You may pay fees with a credit card through this system. BVSD will send more details to families later this summer.
Our Transition Night for incoming students will be virtual this year!
All students who will be new to Centaurus in fall of 2021, and their families, are encouraged to explore our information videos that will be available beginning February 9th.
Welcome to Centaurus High School!
Boulder County Public Health’s Inspire Youth Connections program has launched a youth calendar.
This is a website where youth can go to find events and opportunities happening in Boulder County. Organizations can add events and activities to expand their reach to more Boulder County youth.
This website is geared for youth ages 9-20.
We will continue to use the 5-phase Back Together BVSD Reintroduction plan to quickly and flexibly respond to any public health concerns. Look out for another emailed update, following the update from our public health partners on August 10.
Boulder Valley School District is offering a special help center for parents who need assistance setting up their parent portal accounts, completing their annual data updates, and submitting applications for free and reduced-price lunches.

It is very important to complete an Application for Free & Reduced Meals for this upcoming school year. BVSD is proud to be able to continue offering free meals to all students, thanks to a waiver granted by the USDA. We also want to let families know that school meal applications are good for more than just free meals.
Because of the current bus driver shortage, we know that we will need to rethink how we provide transportation for our general education students.
In alignment with the State and local health department orders, BVSD has updated its health and safety precautions for summer programming.
What a year! As we wrap up the 2020-2021 School Year, I am reflecting on the challenges we faced and overcame in this difficult year.
