A senior’s final year of high school comes with varying traditions designed to recognize and celebrate their K-12 experience, accomplishments and learning. We should all strive to find ways to individually and publicly honor the Class of 2020’s efforts and academic achievements, as well as other grade levels’ accomplishments, while honoring the Governor’s “Stay Home, Save Lives” guidelines that slow the spread of COVID-19.

This guidance from the Oregon Department of Education and Oregon Health Authority offers guidelines for safe year-end school celebrations as well as creative options being considered by districts in Oregon.

Please contact Patricia Stoneroad at the Oregon Department of Education with any questions about this guidance.
