Why did high school schedules change this year?
Beginning with the 2021-2022 school year, Arapahoe, Heritage, Littleton and Options high schools adopted similar schedules using the block schedule. Moving all high schools to a similar schedule is an important step to ensure that all high school students will have the ability to enroll in and attend classes at the Explorative Pathways for Innovative Careers Campus for a portion of their day when it opens for students in the fall of 2023. It would be impossible for students from all four high schools to attend classes together at the Explorative Pathways for Innovative Careers Campus without a common schedule.

Will there be transportation from my high school to the EPIC Campus and back again?
Yes. LPS transportation will be provided to and from the home high school.
