Our team has been working on options for year-end celebrations
such as moving up ceremonies, senior night, graduation, athletic spring senior
night, and other events that typically happen in June. In addition, we are
developing a schedule for students to get their belongings when the
instructional year has finished. We are still waiting to hear on the
official date for the last day of school, and we hope to have more information
coming soon! Thank you for your patience as we work on ending the school
year in a way that respects social distancing practices while bringing students
and staff together to say good-bye before the start of summer.
