Notes from the Principal

DCHS Class of 2020 and Families:

 

We are unable to hold our originally scheduled graduation ceremony due to the Coronavirus pandemic. This decision, while difficult, was made with the safety and health of our students and families in mind. We will be celebrating the graduation of the class of 2020 in the following ways:

 

  1. We will recognize our graduates with a video/slideshow presentation highlighting their accomplishments and future plans. Mrs. McCachern has reached out to you already to collect this information. If you have not already done so, please fill out the google form she sent. This tribute will be released on May 15th. 

  2. We will hold the 2020 DCHS graduation ceremony on Saturday August 1, 2020. If federal, state, and local health guidelines allow, we will hold the ceremony on the Deer Creek High School football field at 8:30 A.M. If we are unable to hold an in-person graduation on this date we will conduct the ceremony digitally.

 

We will provide more details about the August 1st graduation ceremony as we get closer to the date, but please be aware of the following:

  • Facemasks may be required to attend the ceremony. We are looking into options to provide facemasks for our seniors. Families will need to provide their own.

  • Due to social distancing requirements, the number of guests for each senior will be limited. At this time we are planning on that number to be four.

The one-time decision to hold the graduation ceremony on the football field was made based on recommendations from medical professionals. Having graduation in an open-air setting that is not used by other groups of people helps decrease the risk factors involved with the Coronavirus pandemic.

We appreciate the patience and support you have given us as we worked through this distance learning process and the many ways it affects our students. Our number one priority is to ensure the safety and wellbeing of all in our community while also recognizing the amazing accomplishments of our seniors. We look forward to celebrating you!!

Sincerely,

 

Mark Phillips
