AHS Alert Senior Update

Grizz Parents, Guardians, Seniors and Community Members

This is a message for the class of 2020.

Many of you have expressed uncertainty and concerns about how the school closure will impact graduation and your plans post high school. Understandably.

You stand at a remarkable moment in history. Or if you are following social distance guidelines, you may be lounging around the house at a remarkable moment in history. Either way, I want to offer you some reassurance. While we don’t have all of the answers yet, I offer an update below and a reminder that there will be a path forward for every member of the class of 2020.

There are still some conversations occurring with the Oregon Department of Education. I anticipate that those will resolve quickly and favorably, and we can offer additional updates soon.

Prior to break, I sent out the answers to some questions posed by seniors. I am re-posting some below and will continue to do so as issues are resolved at the state level.

  • Will we graduate?
    • Yes! ALL seniors have a path towards graduation. You will have the supports you need for doing your part and we will do ours.
  • What about prom?
    • Our hope is to return to school at the end of April, but we are in uncertain times and uncharted waters. I have tasked our leadership students with alternate plans for some of the traditional senior celebrations.
  • What if I haven’t done my Senior Project or completed Community Service Hours?
    • Our School Board is working on this issue and I anticipate that we will have answers for those students that have not completed senior projects or community service hours soon. For the time being, all community service hours are on hold during the closure due to the need for social distancing.

AHS administrators, staff and teachers are looking forward to welcoming you next Wednesday through Microsoft Teams. Stay tuned to guardian emails for additional details and scheduling, as well as answers to other questions.

Stay healthy and positive. We’re Grizzlies – we got this.
