We are slowly getting back to some normalcy. Even though we are in the "Yellow" phase, we still have a long way to go to get to the "Green" zone.
We will be doing only senior testing for some of our technologies and hope to start this in the next few weeks. Any student who is unable to come to the school for testing will still be able to do it remotely. We are trying to get as many certifications for our seniors as we can before the end of the school year.
Our plan is to have Health Assistant, Culinary Arts, Welding, our Construction Cluster and Networking start the wave for senior certifications. Since we technically have only three weeks of school remaining, we will make every effort to award as many certifications that we can in this short time.
We will be opening our CDL and Practical Nursing programs on Monday, May 18, 2020, to allow students entry into the building.
Classrooms are set up for social distancing. Everyone must have a mask on during the testing. The room will be cleaned before and after each class. Safety and sanitation are key for everything we do. Safety barricades are being installed in our main office as well as in the Practical Nursing and CDL buildings.
I will continue to keep you updated on graduation ceremonies, grading, assignments, and plans for the start of next school year. We, of course, are awaiting guidance from the Governor's office and the Department of Health.
I hope you are staying safe and being careful. We are all hopeful that by following the regulations and guidelines our lives will get back to "normal."
Stay Safe Everyone!
