First, let me thank everyone for your continued patience through the end of this school year. We appreciate your support and feedback regarding senior events and graduation.
While we know many of us would prefer traditional graduation and awards ceremonies, our current situation does not permit such gatherings. However, we have taken your input to create a ceremony that can mimic that as much as possible.
Below are three links to further information. The first outlines in detail important dates for seniors. Therein, you will find information about returning school items, the graduation ceremony, buying student chromebooks, and videos honoring our seniors.
In specific regard to the graduation ceremony, we will be holding a drive-thru type ceremony. Families will be asked to complete a linked sign-up for a designated time slot on June 5th (rain date June 8th). Please use the third link below for further information including the link for the Sign-up page that will be posted at 8PM.
The second link is for students that wish to buy their chromebook. The form will need to be completed with student and parent signatures and brought with the chromebook to the drop off day on May 28th (rain date May 29th). The cost to purchase the chromebook is $25. Students choosing to purchase their chromebook will pick it up on June 3rd/4th.
We recognize that this year has been extremely unique and not one that any of us expected. Yet,we offer a heartfelt congratulations to the Class of 2020 and a thank you to all of the families for your patience and support as this plan has been developed. You have truly been a gift to Bellefonte Area School District, and we are honored to be a part of your graduation celebration.
