Class of 2020 Information

  • The news of the extended closure through the end of the school year has hit everyone hard. What is normally a season of celebration has become a time to grieve not only the loss of face-to-face instruction, but also the many longstanding traditions and once-in-a-lifetime experiences, especially for the Class of 2020.

    In this new environment, there are several questions. Some are applicable to all students of the Class of 2020 and others may need to be addressed on an individual student level. All our high school counselors and principals met with district administrators early in the school closure to prioritize our support for the Class of 2020 with a commitment to assist each graduate with the final quarter of the senior year. We have compiled a list of Frequently Asked Questions below and will continue to update as we have more information and guidance from OSPI.
