We know seniors are counting the last few days of their official high school careers this week. Although not great timing for the official end of their year, we are still planning for an in-person graduation ceremony in late July. Since the state of Illinois will be phasing in gathering opportunities and business openings, we can't tell you which option we'll be able to use, but we wanted to be sure you had time to make plans for our two scenarios. It is possible, if Region 2 jumps to Phase 5 of the Governor's plan by early July, that we could host a traditional ceremony at the Taxslayer at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, July 23.
A more likely scenario, however, is that Region 2 may enter Phase 4, and we will host a series of mini-ceremonies in the Bartlett Performing Arts Center on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, July 23-July 25. We will be sharing your students' specific date and time for the mini-ceremony during our locker materials pick-up on May 26th & 27th.
Please plan ahead to pick up your student's invitation at this time & CONGRATULATIONS!
