High School News
This year we have had some obstacles to overcome. Graduation is no different. I think you'll find that we have come up with solutions that take the wants and needs of our students and families into great consideration. We have also been mindful of the changing state and local guidelines while we have planned our graduation ceremony. We are also approaching an exciting time in our district! Demolition and construction will begin immediately in the MS/HS at the conclusion of the school year.
General information about the 2021 graduation plan:
Graduation will be held outside on the track at 2pm on May 30th, 2021. We will have students seated on either side of a stage. Graduates will walk the stage and receive their diploma.
All families and guests will be seated in the home side of the football stadium.
At this time masks, social distancing, as well as limits to the number of guests, all still apply to our ceremony. Fairview High School can accommodate ten guests per graduate for the outdoor ceremony. We request that each pod of family and friends distance themselves six feet from other pods. Please be aware that if the guidelines are relaxed before May 30th we will communicate changes to our plan with you.
In the event of poor weather, I will send a districtwide Honeywell Instant Alert by noon on the 30th, letting everyone know that we will shift to plan B.
Plan B will entail:
Graduation will be held outside on the track at 2pm on May 31th, 2021. We will follow the same procedure that was planned for the previous day with one exception. We will include a tribute for Memorial day that will honor all military personnel who have lost their lives for us and our country.
In the event of poor weather on the 31st, I will send a districtwide Honeywell Instant Alert by noon, letting everyone know that we will shift to plan C.
Plan C is the following:
Graduation will be held outside on the track at 7:30pm on June 1st, 2021. We will follow the same procedure that was planned for the original May 30th date.
Thank you for your patience and understanding. Stay healthy and safe!
