COVID Update May 12, 2020
Preliminary graduation ceremony – This Sunday, May 17th, 3:00 p.m., KAIR Radio 93.7 will broadcast a ceremony in honor of our seniors.
Graduation – This has obviously been a moving target and sadly will continue to be. We are going to aim for June 27 or July 11 at this point. We continue to await final direction from the Governor, State Department of Education, and Jefferson County Health Department officials. We will, most probably, be outside at the football field to allow for more social distancing and open air. Due to possible hot weather, we are looking at a morning ceremony at 10:00 a.m.
***We plan to give official diplomas at the graduation.
***Awards/Scholarships will be incorporated this year into graduation.
Promotion – We will hold promotion the week following graduation. We are aiming for Tuesday, June 30 or July 14, 7:30 p.m.
Kindergarten promotion and Preschool Open House – Considering the young age of the students, holding a “reschedule” of these events would be difficult to organize and accomplish. Students normally would need much practice with their teachers to perform these events. We are discussing options for transitioning in the fall that would allow for a photo opportunity. Teachers are working on their annual “year in review” video of classroom pictures to be distributed later.
Driver’s Education & Athletic activities/camps – Our typical summer activities will not begin until June 1st or after. More information to come.
Materials and Technology drop off – More information to come.
Tuesday, May 19, 1-3:00 p.m. – (at HS) 12th grade Seniors
Wednesday, May 20, 4-6:00 p.m. - (at EMS) Preschool - 8th grade students
Thursday, May 21, 4-6:00 p.m. - (at HS) 9th grade -11th grade students
Nutrition Program – Free breakfast and lunch meals – We are in the process of getting approval for continuing the free meals through June 26th. More information to come.
Final day of School – Our official last day remains May 21st. At school, we typically would be cleaning our classrooms or lockers and winding down with a touch of fun. So students, please carry on this tradition. Your final assignment for the year is to clean your room on May 21st.
