  • Message to Families

    Today, we have officially reached the unconventional end to this history-making school year. The circumstances over the last two and a half months were something we never could have predicted, and were certainly less than ideal; however, the incredible strength and resiliency of our community have become more apparent than ever. For this, we could not be more proud.

  • Graduation Update

    We have decided to conduct graduation this year in a series of in-person, individual ceremonies at each high school. These will take place at City High, Liberty High, Tate High, and West High over the days of May 28, 29, and 30. This will allow us to limit the number of students present at one time, while providing the opportunity for each graduate to wear their cap and gown, walk across the stage to receive their diploma, and have a professional picture taken. This also allows for families to be a part of this individual ceremony with their students.
