WideField of Dreams - Cyan Pratt
Cyan “Cece” Pratt. Cece is a junior at Widefield High School and very involved in school. Outside the classroom, you can find Cece in a scrum. She is the scrum-half on an all girls rugby team in Colorado Springs. For those scratching their heads, a scrum-half feeds the ball into the scrum and is the linking role between the forwards and the backs. Simply put, Cece is one tough chick. But she has a softer side. Cece also does Panamanian dance. She dresses up in beautiful traditional costumes and performs folklore dances. Cece says her dream is to help out the world and continue to try new things.
2014-15 Bus Route Information
Beginning this school year the Transportation Department has launched Versatrans e-link to give parents and schools the ability to look up the most accurate bus information. This is a new way for families and schools to access transportation information, schedules, and routes. For security and efficiency reasons, we will no longer post bus routes on the Internet. The new student transportation online information system utilizes the latest routing technology to maintain accurate, up-to-date, and "real time" bus routing information.
For more information, visit the Transportation Department page.
