Graduation 2020 It is official! Our senior class will be graduating on Saturday, June 13, 2020 at 1:00 PM. The ceremony will consist of a “Drive-In” type of ceremony to be held in the school parking lot. Seniors will each have two cars filled with family members to witness the ceremony, and an FM system will be available. Unfortunately, we have to limit the event to immediate family only. We were charged with developing a plan for commencement which met all county and state health mandates. For the community however, we will have the entire ceremony recorded and available for viewing by the end of June. We will post the video on our district website for all to see. Senior Cruise/Gift Bins Community members are invited to come out and celebrate our seniors as they “cruise” down main street on Friday, June 12 at 6:00 pm. Senior Students will be in their uniquely decorated cars and “make the loop”. We hope you can come downtown and show our 18 senior students your support and congratulations on their graduation. We will have a Gift Bin for each senior at graduation. If you would like to drop off a card, gift, or words of encouragement to one of our super students, please write the name on the item and drop it off at the high school office between 8:00-3:00 Monday through Thursday. We will make sure they are placed in the appropriate bin.

Hello Seniors and families, I know this is a challenging and frustrating time for you. We want you to know we support you, and we are moving forward with graduation.
