Student ID Policy

We are getting closer to the time when students will be required to have an ID in order to enter the school. Student pictures were taken this week, so every student should have an East High School ID.  IDs are to be worn at all times and around the neck (from a lanyard). The wearing of the IDs, at all times, is a Denver Public Schools policy.  

On Tuesday and Wednesday of next week, students will still be able to show their Infinite Campus or Portal picture in order to enter the school.  Starting on THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 7 all students will be required to have an ID to enter.  If a student doesn’t have an ID by Thursday, they will need to wait in line at the front security desk for one to be printed. Please NOTE that all re-printed IDs are $5 and the charge will be added to the student’s account. 


RedBag is an innovative safety tool pioneered by Cherry Creek Schools.

First, it contains life-saving first aid supplies including emergency tourniquets and CPR airway masks. Second, RedBag is a secure communication tool that can provide critical information to staff and students inside a classroom during a lockdown emergency. To access it, you simply scan a QR code that is attached to the bag with a phone or tablet. Third, RedBag is located in every classroom in the district. This is a game-changer when it comes to addressing the physical and psychological safety of our kids and teachers during a lockdown incident.

In the coming weeks, East High School will begin training and implementing RedBag in our building.  As we develop the processes and structures, we will continue to update you on its implementation and effectiveness.  Visit for more information.

Spirit Store: Special Homecoming Discount

Next week, in honor of Spirit Week and Homecoming, the Spirit Store will be offering a 10% discount.  Operating hours are every day at lunch except Friday 7th period.

East High School’s Spirit Store is located on the second floor just south of the Main Office.

Operating hours are:

The Spirit Store is run by volunteers and will be closed if a volunteer is not available. If you would like to confirm store hours, volunteer, or ask questions, please contact

Rivalry Week- Football vs. South

Hello Students, Staff, Families, and Community!  We are excited for the Varsity Football game on Saturday 9/2 at 11am at All City Stadium!  Denver East will be the home team and Denver South will be the away team.  The Angels should plan to park and enter on the West side (S.Franklin) and the Ravens should plan to park and enter on the East side (S. Race Street)


To allow for efficient access for spectators, please purchase your tickets ahead of time through the link that can be found here.  If you plan to purchase tickets in-person through credit card or cash, please anticipate an extended wait for purchase and entrance.


We have reopened Concessions at All City Stadium and we are making it a better experience each and every week.  Cash is currently accepted.  On Saturday 9/2, we will pilot a credit card option.  The fees for this credit option are high, which is the reason that this is a temporary solution as we continue to explore other credit card options.  Thanks for your flexibility and support!


Our collective goal is to provide a safe and welcoming experience for students, staff, officials, families, and community.  Please help us reach this goal by continuing to demonstrate high levels of respect for the participants and our community.
