Oct. 22nd and Oct. 23rd are Student Picture Retakes. Retakes are available for students who were unhappy with their purchased pictures OR for students who are new and need pictures/ID.

Online learning students, please use the link below to schedule a time if you would like to retake your picture. You will enter through to the upper gym through the blacktop.

***This historic year is different. The yearbook is going to be different, too. You will want to order your student’s copy of this unique book. We promise it’s one you won’t want to miss! Visit www.jostensyearbooks.com to order yours by November 6th for the lowest price!

If your student suffers from a preexisting condition that causes symptoms similar to COVID symptoms, like frequent headaches/migraines, asthma or allergies, please provide us with documentation from your doctor. You can have your doctor’s office fax it to us at (303)-655-2881, or have your child drop it off in the front office. We would like to avoid sending student's home for symptoms for other conditions and are normal symptoms for your child.

Upcoming "VIKAN VR Art Museum" will be open for submissions from any of our Vikan Middle School artists. The Google Form Sign Up is below.Art Club hopes to have the 360 degree "VIKAN VR Art Museum" open by the last week of the quarter! We will announce the access link when it's ready.
Current art students will have their work displayed first, and then the museum will expand to include other Vikan student work, like a virtual hallway display that we can walk around in. Exciting!  
Students can submit photos of artwork at any time, and our Art Club - plus other volunteers -  will help display them in the coming weeks.
