8th Grade Promotion Update

Due to the 48-hour weather forecast, we have made the difficult decision to move 8th grade promotion to a walk-through ceremony in the new gymnasium. This decision will allow for NO limitation on guests and provide the safest environment for our students and families. 

The walk-through ceremony will take place from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM on Tuesday, May 18th. You are welcome to bring your family and friends to watch your child receive their certificate. We would ask that you enter the north breezeway doors between the school building and the new gym. Guests will be required to wear masks while indoors and social distancing is encouraged. Staff will help coordinate a line that will move through the hall and into the gym where your student will cross the stage to receive their certificate. After your child receives their certificate we ask that families exit through the north gym doors to allow for the next families in line to participate. We will provide a seated waiting area near the gym for guests who are unable to stand while waiting in line, please notify our staff if you need this service upon your arrival. 

USD 250 will also provide a video for families following the event that will include student speeches and highlights of the evening. It is important to us that we celebrate this moment for our students, we appreciate everyone’s cooperation in making this a safe and successful celebration.
