Senior Message 3-19

Special Senior Message

As you have heard the county is looking into a more traditional graduation ceremony in an outdoor setting.  As information about the location becomes available, I will be sure to share. As we approach April and continue to be required to practice physical distancing, it does not support us holding a dance.  Since a tradition prom with current restrictions is not an option, the senior class advisor, senior officers, and county HS principals have been and will continue to look at various options to celebrate seniors.  Starting next week seniors will be voting on their class song, color, flower, etc.  Parents if you are interested in help with senior events there is a volunteer sign up link in the email.

Seniors, keep in mind we have a school spirit week coming up, voting for homecoming court, planning for an alternative to prom, holding senior awards (outdoors), distributing cap and gown and graduating. We just have a short time left together so let’s continue to try to make the most of this unusual time.  I am so proud of you and understand you have endured a lot to get to this point, and I realize it is probably different than you and your parents envisioned for your senior year.
