It is now apparent that holding a traditional graduation ceremony with thousands of people in attendance would run counter to the best advice of national, state and local health officials. Therefore, after great consideration and a full discussion with the Board of Education at the Monday evening meeting, we have made the decision to move our graduation ceremony to Memorial Stadium on the campus of Charles Page High School on Saturday June 27. Seniors will graduate in small groups of 50 or less, with each graduate allowed to invite 4 guests. Guests will sit on the home (west) side of the stadium with family groups spaced apart according to health regulations. The times for the group ceremonies will be determined by the number of graduates who plan to attend and will be announced after we survey the Class of 2020 for their commitment to participate. We will distribute this survey to seniors by email later today.
Sandite Athletics is beginning to phase back into a modified summer schedule. As of now, our goal is to begin school this fall, in-person, following our 2020-21 school calendar. We are working on plans to implement new safety procedures at all school sites compliant with the CDC and Oklahoma State Department of Health guidance. The health of our students and staff is our top priority. We appreciate your patience as we learn to navigate this situation. We will notify you as we know more. #SanditesTogether #BESandite
