March 15, 2020

Update on the quickly changing things in our world right now. Holly was live on FaceBook to answer some questions she has received and pass along some crucial information. (You can go to our Facebook page to watch her live video)

The governor has issued a recommendation that for the next 8 weeks, groups of 50 or more not gather together so this will affect our class meeting this Thursday. We have a graduating class of 71 so that puts us over the limit of 50. Here is our plan for Thursday, which she ran by the leadership team.

Class Meeting Thursday

  • Holly will call Jeff from Josten’s to see how early he can get to Country Meadows on Thursday. She will update us on timing for Thursday after she talks to him.
  • We will have him set up right outside the meeting room next to the doors to the circle drive. You can line up outside in your cars in the circle drive. You will pull up when it’s your turn and come in, one family at a time to get your things from Jeff. We will have hand sanitizer available and will wipe the doors down with sanitizing wipes between each family.
  • The meeting will be held on Facebook live this week. With FaceBook live you can still ask questions. Holly will have someone reading those questions to her so they can be answered during the live presentation.
  • Seniors who need to have their photos taken for the yearbook’s Senior Surveys will be allowed to come in to have those photos taken. If you are immuno-compromised or have someone in your household who is immuno-compromised, contact Holly and she will work with you and your counterpart to arrange to have your photo taken when there isn’t a crowd. If you want to come in and participate in the meeting, you can, but we have to stay under the 50 person limit.
  • You can pay for yearbook or prom at this time. Our secretary will be available to take payments.

Prom:

  • We are continuing to evaluate things. This afternoon we were at a 250 group size limit, we are now at group sizes no larger than 50. Our social committee coordinator is contacting the venue to see how they are handling private events as well as our vendors. We think worst case scenario we will have to reschedule prom for sometime in May. Although it may seem strange to hold prom after graduation, these are crazy, fast changing times. We know it would be disappointing to postpone Prom, but we have to abide by what our public officails are recommending to keep everybody safe, our teens and all who they come in contact with. We will keep you updated as we get more information.

Graduation:

  • At this time, Graduation is 8 week weeks away and we are hoping these group size restrictions will be lifted by then. We are in contact with the church where we hold graduation. If they aren’t allowing groups over 50 by the time of our graduation, graduation may have to be postponed. We will keep you updated, but as for now, gradation is still on with no change of date.

Finally, at this time nothing is cancelled. We are committed to providing our seniors with Prom and Graduation, we may have to postpone these events depending on how the situation changes. We will keep everyone posted.
