Criteria for Reopening

2/5/21 - A Message on Graduations
Good evening Hart District families,
I’m writing tonight to provide an update on our plans for graduation this school year. Those of us charged with preparing this annual right-of-passage fully recognize the importance of this special event for students and families. We are committed to pursuing some form of an in-person graduation ceremony IF we are allowed to do so under State and County health guidelines.
To that end, we have reached out to the County Health Department to ask for guidance on what will be allowed for graduation. Three separate times we have been told that, “it depends upon COVID rates as we approach graduation.” This lack of specificity has hampered our ability to communicate effectively with families.
Because we don’t want to sit back passively and wait, we have convened a committee of District leaders to prepare a proposed list of "acceptable" activities that could be tied to the colored tier levels on the State’s Blueprint for a Safer Economy. Once we complete the plan, we will propose our ideas to the Health Department. Our hope is that – if these proposals are accepted – we can communicate what options parents can realistically expect within each colored tier.
While we are still hoping for an in-person event, we have authorized our video programs to begin planning a virtual graduation video. The start of this process should not be interpreted as an indication that we have abandoned an in-person graduation. Rather, we are starting now because it takes time to put-together a high-quality video remembrance.
Please stay tuned for more information about graduation options in the coming weeks. I’m optimistic that if COVID rates continue to fall, we will be able to offer some form of in-person option for students and families.
