Eleven schools celebrate milestone anniversaries this school year

Poudre School District’s history stretches back more than 100 years when, in 1866, a young widow moved to Fort Collins and began teaching her son and another student in a log cabin on the military post. Since those humble beginnings, PSD has swelled to a school district serving some 30,000 students across more than 50 schools. 

This year, several of those schools are celebrating significant milestones in their history. Take a look at the following list and join us in wishing these schools a happy birthday! 

PSD schools closed Wednesday, March 13 / Las escuelas del Distrito Escolar Poudre están cerradas

Based on current weather forecasts and expected inclement conditions, all Poudre School District schools will be closed Wednesday, March 13.
All athletics, programs, and activities, as well as BASE Camp, are canceled. Students who attend classes at Front Range Community College or Colorado State University should check with the college to determine if classes are in session. If you have questions about activities or athletics, please contact your school.
