As we move
toward high school graduation, I want to acknowledge that it has been an
absolute honor to serve as superintendent of Union-Endicott schools. With
all that has transpired this past year, our team of faculty, staff and district
leaders are grateful to the community for your kindness and support.
Based on the
Governor’s requirements for an outdoor ceremony of no more than 150 people,
we are moving forward with plans for several smaller ceremonies on our UEHS
field. With 330 students, we plan to have seven graduations that will include
parents being seated in the stadium. We will NOT be giving out tickets, as
we trust our families will work to limit the number of participants based on
the state’s guidance. If the Governor allows for increased participation,
then some of these sessions will be collapsed to allow for more students to
graduate together. If the infection rates increase and the Governor
decides not to allow outdoor ceremonies, then we will need to revert to a car
we will have locations set up for photo opportunities at our elementary and
secondary schools. Families are welcome to take graduation photos at these
sites after each ceremony.
