Voluntary In-Person Celebrations
This week students may choose to participate in outdoor ‘in-person’ celebrations, following recently-issued TEA guidelines for such ceremonies.
“After speaking with student leaders, we decided to add the option of an additional celebration,” said Superintendent Kent P. Scribner. “This second event will follow newly-released TEA directives and social distancing protocols for these outdoor celebrations.”
Almost 5,000 seniors were expected to participate in the online ceremonies this past weekend; the outdoor events are totally voluntary and will have limited audience members.
The outdoor celebrations will also be contingent on public health conditions and will take place at either Farrington Field or Clark Stadium, the District’s two largest outdoor athletic venues from June 23-26. The District will follow CDC guidelines for social distancing.
The District announced in late April that large gathering requirements established as a result of the COVID-19 virus would make it necessary to have a virtual event. After meeting with 25 senior class presidents in an online conference call, Dr. Scribner agreed to add the option of in-person celebrations at the District’s two largest football stadiums.
