On behalf of the Board of Education and Cañon City School District Leadership, I am pleased to inform you that your request to hold a bonfire event on September 18, 2019, has been approved.

They clearly presented detailed safety and security practices for the event and confidently fielded a variety of inquiries from the BOE and District Leadership.
It was evident that a great deal of research, time and effort went into preparing their proposal and it was great to witness firsthand their leadership and ability to facilitate community collaboration.
We hope this will be a new of tradition CCHS students.
Have a safe day!
