Message from Principal Gorman
Good afternoon everyone -
Yesterday, local county high schools had a phone conference with the Jefferson County Health Department. We discussed ways of celebrating our seniors and involving the families while keeping safe practices in mind.
We are still teaming up with WTOV-9 to film and produce a graduation video. The filming dates of our virtual graduation will be May 20 and May 21 in the SHS Gym.
Based on new guidance provided by local and state health departments, we have created a revised approach to Commencement that allows for up to four family members to be present to watch their son/daughter walk across the stage and receive their diploma. Only one family of four is permitted in the gym at a time. Once that family leaves, the next family will enter. Families have to wait in their vehicles until it is their turn.
Police will be present in the parking lot for added security. We ask that students and their families not congregate outside the school before, during or after the event, in accordance with the state mandate limiting group size.
Your scheduled day and time is
when all fees are paid.
We know this is a disappointment for our seniors and their families. We share your sadness and thank you for your cooperation as we remain committed to holding this ceremony in the safest way possible while making it memorable for our graduates.
Thank you for your constant support, and as always...
GO BIG RED!
