Students in grades 9-11 and Parents,

I hope this email finds you well while staying engaged in the learning activities our teachers continue to share with you.  By now, many of you may have heard the Governor's announcement that schools may begin opening back up on June 1st.  At this time we have not determined all the implications that this will have for our staff or students.  What we can tell you is that the comprehensive pre-assessments scheduled for the week of June 1st by your teachers will remain as scheduled.  This means you should plan for them to be online and in the same format that your teachers have already shared with you.  Additionally, most, if not all, of the Credit Recovery from June 8 to 25 will remain online at this time.


We do not have specifics at this point for the summer sports of baseball and softball or any information about summer conditioning or camps.  We will share that information when we have more specific guidance from the State and various associations.


We will keep with our plan to give students in grades 9-11 access to pick up personal items from the school during the week of May 26-29 by appointment only.  Students will be allowed access to lockers (both classroom and locker room) in 15 minute increments.  Only two students per 15 minute increment will be allowed.  Please keep in mind that if you sign up for a time, please do not attempt to access the building until your exact time.


Students should park in the student parking area and enter through the front doors closest to the main gym.  Students will be expected to exit through the activity doors by the locker rooms.  Students will be allowed access to their locker and the locker room.  If other access to other areas (i.e classroom) students should indicate that need on the signup genius.


Students in grades 9-11 can schedule an appointment by going to:

https://www.signupgenius.com/go/5080A45A5A62CABFA7-lewis


Please keep in mind that students in grades 9-11 will NOT turn in items at the end of this school year.  We will collect textbooks and other items when we return to school on Tuesday, August 25th.  This means they should plan to keep their Chromebooks and other items until the start of next school year.


As we get more information we will share that with you.  In the meantime, stay safe and stay engaged in the learning activities shared by your teachers!

Seniors and Parents,

I hope this email finds you all safe and excited for the Memorial Weekend!  Contained in this email you will find other linked documents, surveys and needed information for seniors and families.  Here is a list of those items:


By now you have all likely heard the Governor’s announcement that would allow schools to begin opening back up on June 1st.  I think we all have great hopes for things to begin to return to “normal,” as we know school and school activities after this announcement, but we still have a long way to go with moving out of the safety restrictions and protocols that are in place, but we do have movement.  To this end, some families have inquired about investigating a virtual graduation ceremony versus an in-person ceremony.  As you know we have rescheduled our in-person graduation ceremony to Sunday, August 2nd, pending any restrictions that would be in place at that time.  In addition, we are hoping to have our Senior Award Night on Saturday, August 1st, and a prom dance on Friday, July 31st, at our school gym with the same requirements and expectations as our canceled April prom dance.  These are all being attempted in order to give our seniors and families some of those senior experiences they have asked about and that are typically associated with a student’s senior year.   While we know that there are many unknowns, we still believe, after again reaching out to our Parent Input Group and our Building Leadership Team, that making every effort to have the in-person graduation on August 2nd is still the best for most people.  Knowing that many families have reorganized activities around the reschedule to August 2nd, we will keep this date and make every effort to have an in-person ceremony.  Obviously, we would honor any expectations that are required by the State and local health agencies at that time for our format.  We understand that such a rescheduling and format may not be a fit for all families and we understand if you are not able to participate, but we are hopeful that many of our graduates, families and their friends take part in this significant ceremony in the lives of our graduates.


Thank you for all your support and stay safe!

Proud to be a Titan!
