Superintendent's COVID-19 Memo

Date: July 14, 2020
To: Chadron Public School Patrons
From: Ginger Meyer, Superintendent; Chadron Public Schools Subject: School Information

No Additional Graduation Ceremony in July

As stated last spring, we held on to hopes for a traditional graduation ceremony for the Class of 2020 by making a decision on July 1st whether we could host a traditional ceremony scheduled for July 18th.  However, due to continued concerns of the spread of the COVID-19 virus, public health measures greatly limit attendance for a ceremony as well as the need for continued social distancing and screening.  For example, public health advises that each graduate could only be allowed a maximum of 8 guests, other family or friends would not be allowed to attend.

Grades Will Look Different - No 4th Quarter Grade Will Be Posted

I want to remind parents and students that grades will look very different for this semester. Transcripts and report cards will not show a 4th quarter letter grade.  However, full credit for the fourth quarter will be awarded based on successful completion of assignments during remote learning.

The third quarter grades were completed, so we have those posted and they will be used for calculations for GPA for the semester.  No student's semester GPA will be lowered from what was posted at the end of the third quarter.

CHS Graduation Is Being Reviewed For Alternative Options

Just a quick note to our seniors and their families that we are reviewing options to honor our graduates this spring. 

This ever-changing environment makes it difficult to plan for upcoming events. We hope our response to prevent the spread of this virus minimizes local impact so we can have more options available that fit public health guidelines in May. 

At this time, we know that a traditional graduation ceremony will not be possible in May, so we're exploring alternative methods to honor the Class of 2020.  We hope to have an announcement later this month.
