I hope this message finds all of you doing well. We wanted to inform you about some of the things that are going on with the high school.
As many of you may know, the School Committee passed a motion for the return to in-person learning “for all students who want it”. The date the School Committee set for the high school to return to in-person learning is April 26, the 1st day of the 4th quarter. In the coming weeks we will be sharing details about what in-person learning will look like, and asking families to fill out a survey to find out how many students will choose the in-person option.
Student leaders in the class of 2021 organized a virtual meeting for the entire class last Friday. I spoke with them about graduation, and the plan to have it outside. Public health metrics and the venue we settle on will have a huge impact on the type of graduation ceremony we will be able to have for them. They also heard from Mrs. Haygood about the prom, and the need to come up with alternative activities and events. They gave us a list of those alternatives, and other activities they are interested in having. You can see the list of those activities here. We’ll be meeting again with the student leaders to finish planning the end of the year events.
We are also planning some in-person outdoor extra-curricular activities for any student to join in. We will be meeting with Club Advisors next week to continue our efforts to finalize what those activities will be, and when they’ll happen. Stay tuned for those details.
