Schedule changes and cancellations
From Mr. Handmaker:
Now that we’re one week into Gov. Abbott’s order that schools remain in distance learning through the end of the school year, we want to share announcements for the rest of the year. As you can imagine, we're very sad to be cancelling or postponing so many events.
Last Day of School:
Our last day of this school year in all divisions is May 15, as opposed to the earlier date of May 20. We are making this change to reflect the cancellation of final exams in the Middle and Upper School; we hope this will allow families with children in multiple divisions to plan accordingly.
The original graduation date of
has been postponed. We are asking seniors and their families to reserve
as possible graduation dates. If neither of those dates are possible, we will hold a virtual graduation on August 9 and schedule a Class of 2020 in-person celebration as soon as possible.
Summer at Keystone:
Camp Cobra basketball and volleyball camp, Writers’ Workshop, Cat Class, Camp Hollywood and Little School cooking and art camps will not take place this year. If you have already paid for these camps, your school account will be credited.
Upper School Play:
“A Midsummer Night’s Dream” is cancelled. It had been postponed pending a date when it could be presented, but current restrictions prevent it from taking place.
“Fighting Cancer with the Mind”:
An April 30 lecture by Dr. Jamie Jacobs of Harvard Medical School in conjunction with the Harvard Club of San Antonio has been cancelled. Both Keystone and the local Harvard Club hope to hold an event on campus in the future.
50th Alumni Reunion:
This event has been postponed to a future date.
This school year is ending in a way we could have never imagined. It has been tough and you have risen to the challenge and persevered in this difficult time. Thank you!
We’ll send more announcements over the summer with suggested activities for children and planning updates for the 2020-21 school year in the coming months. Whether we begin next school year on campus, in distance learning, or some combination of the two, we will be ready to provide an exceptional education and a true sense of community to you, our students and families.
With hope and gratitude,
William B. Handmaker
Head of School
