Principal Jim Condon said, “We have had to make changes in our back-up plan for commencement. The original plan included moving commencement to the varsity gym on July 17 if we confront bad weather. That is no longer the case. Instead, our new back-up plan will be to reschedule commencement for 7:30 on Saturday, July 18 on the football field. I recognize this may conflict with some commencement parties however, the decision was made in compliance with suggestions from our county health board.”
