Class of 2020 students and families, USD 235 staff:
When Governor Kelly modified the Reopen Kansas plan, it caused us to need to move our graduation date scheduled for June 21. The seniors who participated in the graduation ceremony discussion Zoom session with me wanted to set a date in each of the three summer months. The second date was originally set for Sunday, July 12, but I realized that for some families and situations, a Saturday graduation might be preferable. So I gave the seniors and families an option to vote for either July 11 or July 12. The result of that vote was to have the ceremony on Saturday, July 11.
We will plan to have the UHS Class of 2020 Graduation Ceremony on Saturday, July 11 at 2:00 pm in the WBE gymnasium. Details are still being discussed and considered regarding social distancing guidelines. I will send those out as soon as they are finalized.
I want to thank each senior and family member for their patience, perseverance, cooperation, and support during this time. I know it has not been easy, and we all wanted this to happen much earlier (like May 9!), but I know we will do our best to make this a special and meaningful ceremony. Graduating seniors, we will plan to have a practice on Friday, July 10. I will be in touch regarding a time.
Blessing to you all!
Mr. Mike Reith, Uniontown JH/HS Principal
