Craig High School’s virtual commencement ceremony will “air” on YouTube this Saturday, June 6, 2020, at noon.
The virtual ceremony has been finalized, and a link will be created for you to access the video. As soon as I have the link, I will email it to all graduates and their families. It will also be shared on Facebook and our school webpage. It is important to know that the video will not be accessible until noon - precisely. Don’t panic if you try to click on the link and it doesn’t work right away; just give it another try. If you are unable to watch the ceremony at noon, it will be available for later viewing through the link. The video will also be available for purchase. Once I receive ordering information from the video production company, I will share that with you.
I want to thank you for submitting pictures and video clips for inclusion in the virtual ceremony! I have thoroughly enjoyed watching the video come together and am excited for you all to see it.
Most of our graduates participated in the drive-through distribution and collection event yesterday and received their bag of senior “goodies,” including their high school diploma. If you were unable to attend, please contact me to set up a time to turn in and receive your items. Just send an email to email@example.com.
We are still waiting on yearbook distribution. Jostens, the publisher, had to close one of their printing facilities due to COVID-19, so they are working beyond capacity at the site that is still open. It will also take some time to ship them because they are printed out of state. As soon as I know when we can get them out to you, I will send an email, regarding the distribution plan. It will likely be another drive-through event.
If you need your transcripts sent to a specific college and you haven’t already submitted a request from, visit the school website, under Student Services, for the form and email or US mail it to Craig.
Lastly, over the summer months, we will use the blue tiles with signatures you provided as part of a mural that will be painted/created on a wall in place of the traditional handprints. I hope to get pictures of the final project out to everyone.
Graduates, your school email will remain “active” until later this summer, so I can send updates once I have them, regarding the possibility of an in-person graduation ceremony on July 25th.
Today, Thursday, June 4th, was scheduled to be your graduation day. I hope Saturday’s virtual ceremony offers you a chance to be celebrated and celebrate one another’s accomplishments. Please accept my sincere congratulations and best wishes for what is yet to come, Class of 2020.
Alison Bjoin, Craig Principal
Wednesday, June 3, 2020, all Craig Seniors should report to Craig for a curbside drop-off and pick-up event at the times specified below.
Last names that begin with A-K 9:30-10:15
Last names that begin with L-Z 10:15-11:00
Seniors are asked to bring the following items with them that morning: school-issued Chromebook with the charger but not the case (the case can be kept by the student), all textbooks and classroom novels, any LMC materials (library books), band instruments/concert attire/music folder, show choir costume pieces, any classroom equipment (cameras, calculators, etc), and the blue tile that they were given with their name/signature added.
Seniors will enter the grounds on the southside of the building (entrance will be marked). The first stop is an optional stop for students who have band and show choir materials to turn in. This will happen at Exit 36 (the exterior band room door). They will proceed around the back of the building to Exit 9 (the field house overhead door); here, they will turn in all other items and pick up anything we retrieved from gym and hallway lockers. Once we have collected all that is owed, seniors will drive around to Exit 1 (front doors/main doors) and receive a bag of “goodies” that includes: diploma, Senior Awards program, graduation program, prizes from PTO (if the student was a winner), time capsules from Marshall Middle School, and athletic awards (for spring sports).
Seniors should make and bring with them a sign with their name printed on it to place on the driver’s side dashboard as they enter campus.
Only one student should report per car (immediate family members can accompany seniors). Parents are allowed to come in place of their child if necessary. Families that cannot attend the scheduled event, should contact Alison Bjoin, Principal, to make other arrangements (firstname.lastname@example.org).
At this time, yearbooks will NOT be distributed during this event. We are waiting on Jostens publishing to produce and ship the books. As soon as we receive them, we will share information about how to pick them up. It is likely we will handle yearbook distribution in a separate curbside pick-up.
We will follow numerous safety protocols to ensure that students/families who participate and Craig employees are kept safe during the event. Everything will be handled through drive-up; no one should exit their vehicles. Employees will wear masks and use hand sanitizer between every vehicle. The health and safety of everyone involved is, of course, a priority.
We look forward to seeing all our seniors for this drop off and pick up event!
