Cheyenne students get a two-week winter break, but any students who need to catch up or simply don’t want to fall behind have a chance for some extra help with free tutoring session being offered at Cheyenne Central, East and South high schools.
“It’s something that 7-12 graders are invited to come to,” says Mary Quast, with Laramie County School District #1 Community Relations. “We have certified teachers that will be available, so we invite people to check it out.
