Superintendent Michelle Langenfeld says, “I wish to extend my deepest gratitude to each member of the Class of 2020…Through their many sacrifices and selflessness by honoring the Safer at Home
Order and the Department of Public Health guidelines, they have helped to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our community. The Senior Class of 2020 will be remembered for their remarkable resilience, incredible courage, and perseverance in the face of adversity.”

District officials say they continue to keep open the possibility for schools to hold an in-person graduation celebration for the Class of 2020 in the late summer.
