Dear Class of 2020,
I have been in contact with some of the local health care providers, and they are encouraging us to have our graduation ceremony outside due to the fact that so many people will be in one confined space. Therefore, after taking their medical advice into consideration, we will be moving the graduation ceremony to the football field.
Times for the practice and ceremony will remain the same. Graduation practice will be held at 10:00 AM on Friday, June 5, and Graduation will take place on Saturday, June 6, at 1:00 PM.
Both sides of the football field will be open for seating in an attempt to keep people as separated as possible. There will be a very limited amount of seating on the track in front of both sides of the bleachers for the people that are unable to navigate the steps. We will be putting a plan in place in the next few days in case of inclement weather.
The graduation ceremony will also be broadcast live on the Blackwell Public Schools Facebook page. I know that this is different, but please remain positive during these unforeseen times. Everyone's health and safety is of utmost importance.
