Senior Information Page: End of Year Dates

  • To the Class of 2020 and families, you deserve every opportunity to commemorate the culmination of thirteen years of formal public education as each and every class has done prior to you. While we may not be able to meet as one large class with a prom, senior awards program, baccalaureate, and formal graduation ceremony, we remain committed to offering you a chance to celebrate these end-of-year traditions as best we can be given the current global health crisis. While we'd much rather say our goodbyes in person, you have earned the right to celebrate these milestones with your family. The high school administration has been working with members of the senior class to plan activities related to the school calendar and senior-related milestones:

     

    PROM - MAY 2, 2020

    • Postponed
