Last week, the Commissioner of the Texas Education Agency (TEA) announced guidelines for end of the year events such as graduation and prom that all schools are required to follow. While we must be in compliance with the State requirements, we also want a traditional ceremony for the Class of 2020. To that end, we have selected an outdoor venue that not only meets these requirements but also provides for as many guests to attend as social distancing guidelines allow.
Prom is typically an event with hundreds of students gathered in one single, indoor space. Unfortunately, this type of event does not fall within the TEA guidelines that are now required for school functions. Therefore, we will not be able to have prom this year. Our administration and staff understand the disappointment this causes for our students and all those who have worked tirelessly to plan this special event. However, we must remember that the guidance issued by the Texas Education Agency is in place to protect the health and safety of our students, faculty, families and our community at large.
Parents will receive additional communication next week regarding further details about graduation.
