In-Person Graduation Ceremony Update | Graduación en Persona Ceremonia de Actualización

It is with a heavy heart that we share the graduation ceremonies we hoped to host at Fred Kelly Stadium at the end of the month will not be able to proceed as planned.

Though we were all looking forward to celebrating our graduates together, we must put the health and safety of our students, staff, and community first. Current state public health directives prohibit community gatherings, defined as meetings or other events that bring together persons from multiple households at the same time for a shared or group experience in any indoor or outdoor space. These gatherings are not permitted at this time because they create an elevated danger of COVID-19 transmission and spread.

We realize this is another disappointment during what has already been a very challenging year. Regardless, we are proud of our Class of 2020 and the resilience, fortitude, and perseverance they have demonstrated. These traits will serve them well throughout their lives, and we wish them nothing but the best.

Es con un gran pesar que compartimos que las ceremonias de graduación que esperábamos organizar en el Estadio Fred Kelly a fin de mes que no podrán proceder según lo planeado.

Aunque todos estábamos ansiosos por celebrar juntos a nuestros graduados, debemos priorizar la salud y la seguridad de nuestros estudiantes, el personal y la comunidad. Las directivas estatales actuales de salud pública prohíben las reuniones comunitarias, definidas como reuniones u otros eventos que reúnen a personas de múltiples hogares al mismo tiempo para una experiencia compartida o grupal en cualquier espacio interior o exterior. Estas reuniones no están permitidas en este momento porque crean un peligro elevado de transmisión y propagación de COVID-19.

Nos damos cuenta de que esta es otra decepción durante lo que ya ha sido un año muy difícil. En cualquier caso, estamos orgullosos de nuestra Clase de 2020 y de la resistencia, fortaleza y perseverancia que han demostrado. Estos rasgos les serán útiles durante toda su vida, y les deseamos lo mejor.
