Carrabec High School

· I held a zoom meeting on April 28th with parents of the seniors to look at options of how we might do graduation this year. Although the Governor is tentatively looking at allowing groups of less than 50, starting on June 1st, this will not allow for a traditional graduation. Many ideas were shared and I am looking at them all as possibilities.

· I am reaching out to the seniors to see what will be the best time for me to schedule a zoom meeting with them. Looking for their input as to their wishes for graduation.

· The high school has purchased yard signs representing each senior. They were placed on the front lawn of the high school on April 29th.

· Mr. Hall and the IT department have put together a senior slide show that will be running on the district Facebook page. They also developed individual digital images that will be sent to each senior’s household for families to use.

· I am holding weekly zoom staff meetings with my staff. I am also connecting with staff members individually as needed.

· The high school staff continues to push out educational opportunities weekly.

· The Mountain Valley Conference Top Ten Senior Banquet was cancelled by the host, Spruce Mountain High School. Mrs. Holzworth is reaching out to the Top 10 families to gather information for a press release.

· The Carrabec High School Prom was scheduled for May 9, 2020, at T&B’s in Skowhegan. At this time this event has been cancelled due to Covid-19 restrictions.

· Somerset County Technical Center (SCTC) will not be holding its final awards ceremony at Skowhegan High School Gymnasium
