Great news shared by Mrs. Embley for our Seniors!
Dear Senior Parents,
We are excited to announce that we plan to hold our in-person graduation on Thursday, July 9th at 4:00 PM at the ARM & HAMMER Park on the Trenton Thunder Baseball Field. At this time, we are expecting to be able to hold just one ceremony including all our 2020 graduates. Seating will be limited and all social distancing protocols will be in place. We are in the early planning stages and do not have more information to share at this time.
Please remember, at any time the Governor can revoke our abilty to hold an in-person ceremony and/or greatly limit the number of people who can attend.
We are very hopeful this will work out and be a great send-off for our graduates. As soon as I have more information, I will let you know.

BREAKING: Today I’m signing an Executive Order LIFTING OUR STAY-AT-HOME ORDER.
Please continue to be responsible and safe. Wear face coverings and keep a social distance from others when out in public.
We can take these steps today because of the data and the prevailing science.

We will continue to base our decisions squarely on facts and data.
I anticipate being able to raise the limit on non-protest & non-religious activities to: 👥250 people on June 22nd 👥500 people on July 3rd
School districts planning graduations should prepare for a 500-person limit to be in place by the time graduations can resume on July 6th.
