I hope this communication finds you safe. Since reporting that we were planning virtual graduation ceremonies for seniors in May, I have received many emails expressing opposition to this plan. The Board, my staff, and I understand the disappointment. We know seniors have lost so much already.
I will share your concerns with principals on Tuesday morning and with the Board during an emergency closed session meeting on Wednesday. There is no way, of course, to know what every senior and parent wants without a survey, which is what I will be recommending to both principals and the Board.
The health and safety of students and staff continue to be my top priorities. Maneuvering through this COVID-19 response plan has been challenging for everyone. I’ll send out another communication on Thursday. Until then, please follow the protocols listed in the county order, which you can read here, so that you and your families remain safe.
