Graduation Practice is Friday morning at 8:00 a.m. Graduates must be in attendance. We have been watching the weather all week to determine whether we will be able to hold graduation outside. The percentages of rain on Saturday and Sunday do not look favorable still at this time, so in order for families to plan accordingly, we will be moving graduation indoors to the HS Gym. We are increasing the tickets to 12 for each graduate. You will need a ticket for every person entering. Children age three and under will not need a ticket. If you know your family will not need 12 tickets, please let your student know so they may share any extras with their classmates. We will do a live stream of the graduation for those that cannot attend. Graduates need to park in the bus loop and arrive by 1:00 p.m. Front doors will be open at 1:15 p.m. for parents and guests to enter. Have a great day!
Bus 6 will run late today on the afternoon route. Please call the office if you need to make changes to your child's transportation.
Library Books are due tomorrow.
We will collect the seniors' Ipads, chargers, and cords tomorrow (Tuesday, May 11th) first thing in the morning. Please make sure to bring each of these items with you tomorrow. Any damaged or lost items will need to be paid for prior to the class trip on Thursday. As we look towards the weather for the weekend, we are planning for an outdoor graduation ceremony with no restrictions. If weather does not allow us to be outside, we will move to the HS gym for the ceremony with each graduate receiving 10 tickets for guests and will do a live broadcast on Facebook. Students will receive those tickets on Friday at graduation practice at 8:00 a.m. Please feel free to call the office if you have any questions.
