Letter to Seniors From Superintendent Litt

Seniors… Oh Yes You Can… You Earned it!!!

As I wrote when we originally had to close in March, no one expected this, we had no real warning and you did nothing wrong. Yet suddenly your entire life and the lives of your families were changed drastically with you being home every day. Of course, the real tragedy came to those who lost loved ones as a result of the virus. I am eternally proud and grateful to all our wonderful teachers, support staff, administrators, students and parents. I am truly honored to serve you!!!

So…in recognition of all your achievements in your grades before reaching 8th grade, and in recognition for the reports received from your teachers that you participated in “virtual learning” in your homes, and mostly because you are truly loved…

I have authorized a virtual graduation for our 8th graders. You will graduate in your homes.

Principals will make arrangements to have students pick up caps and gowns on a specific date and time in the entrance of their buildings. 

Principals will also notify parents as to the date and time for students to return textbooks and computers, so that you may receive your final grades. Note: 8th graders must return all textbooks and computers before their records will be sent to the high schools.

Congratulations. It was a joy serving all of you and your parents. Please… do me one favor… when you find your place in the world and after you graduate college or enter the world of work… just make this world a better place.

With love and respect,

Jeff Litt
