The end of the 2017-18 school year is rapidly approaching. The last day of school is Friday, May 25, and is an early release day. Graduating seniors have just a handful of days left as they look forward to graduating ceremonies. To avoid conflicts with state track and field (May 17-19) and state baseball (May 25-26), schools have adopted the following schedule for graduation: Paonia High School - Monday, May 21, at 7 p.m.; Hotchkiss High School - Tuesday, May 22, at 7 p.m.; Vision Charter Academy - Wednesday, May 23, at 5 p.m.; Delta High School Wednesday, May 23, at 7 p.m.; and Cedaredge High School - Thursday, May 24, at 7 p.m. Olathe High School graduation takes place at Wilson Field at 12:30 p.m. Sunday, May 20.
The DCI's graduation supplement will be included in next week's edition.
