We have received a lot of input regarding what our students and parents would like to see for graduation. Overwhelmingly, the students, staff, and parents who have offered input have requested that we have a traditional graduation ceremony when the restrictions for social distancing are lifted.
To honor those requests, we have decided to schedule a traditional ceremony at a later date, when state and county officials deem it safe. We are hoping that it can be sometime in early Fall, but will have to wait until we get clearance for large gatherings. Last year, 700 people attended our graduation for 60 students. We are hoping to have a similarly large turnout when we are able to schedule it and hope that our graduates will still be eager to participate, even if it is a few months late.
Most of our seniors graduated already and have been waiting for a ceremony where all their friends and family can attend. Our graduating juniors have worked really hard and many have expressed that they are willing to wait for a traditional ceremony too.
We definitely want to host a graduation in honor of this desire, especially since our graduates have been waiting in anticipation of such a special event and many have overcome great obstacles to earn their diploma and walk that stage to get it in front all those who they love.
When it becomes clearer when we can plan this graduation ceremony, I will notify all parents and graduates, and I will also post information on our website. In the meantime, please don't hesitate to reach out for updates. Please email the principal at firstname.lastname@example.org.
On Friday, teachers contacted (or attempted to contact) all the students in their Guidance Class to check in and remind everyone that Credit 2 was due.
Parents can expect 4th Quarter progress reports to be available in Aeries within a week to reflect student's progress. Progress Reports will not be mailed, so please check Aeries next week. Students should have earned 2 credits in all classes by now, except for the 1 credit required in Guidance. Grades will be reflected as Pass (P) or (No Pass) NP. If your child has an NP for any class, please work with your child to get caught up and contact the teacher as needed.
The 3rd Credit assignments are linked below. These are due on May 15th. Don't hesitate to contact our staff if you have questions.
There have been many questions regarding a graduation ceremony. It is still our desire to celebrate our graduates at some point. If you have questions about graduation, please contact Ms. Rude at email@example.com
Finally, if you paid for Prom or Senior Getaway you should have already received your refund check in the mail. If you have not received a refund, please contact Ms. Rude.
We hope that all of our families are healthy and well.
