Principal's Message (Monday, June 8, 2020)

Dear Class of 2020, 

Congratulations on reaching the remarkable achievement of graduating from Brookings-Harbor High School. You have worked hard and now you are ready to receive your diploma this Saturday. We are so very proud of you!  

You will find all of the information that you need to guide you through our special graduation process on our Graduation Webpage. Additionally, our Counseling Department reached out to every graduate’s family last week with their time to report to the stadium so please email me if you did not receive this information. Understanding and following these instructions will make the experience easier for you and your guests and will provide you with your well-earned diploma in a timely and safe manner.

Lastly, please share the live streaming link of the ceremony with your loved ones so that you can share your accomplishment even though they may not be able to join you in the stadium. I know we will have many community members watching and sharing in this important milestone. 

There is truly nothing that I, nor anyone, can say to make up for the time that you’ve lost during your senior year but please know that our team is dedicated to giving you the best experience possible during your graduation ceremony.  

We look forward to seeing you at graduation on Saturday, June 13th at your designated time and celebrating with you!

We are sooooo excited to see you walk across the stage on Saturday, June 13th at Elmer Bankus Stadium (football field)!
Due to social distancing requirements and state and district guidelines, there are two parts to the graduation. The first part is a live stream ceremony that starts at 2:00 pm and all graduates and their families (as well as the whole community) are invited to watch on the district website or listen on KURY radio station 95.3FM.  
The second part of the ceremony is Roll Call where graduates walk across the stage to receive their diplomas. This is both live and live-streamed. For this part your arrival time is [Specific Time for Each Student Group]. Please arrive in the parking lot a few minutes before your arrival time and when you see Mr. Kleespies and Mr. Fulton holding up [Your Group #] in front of the gate (by the restrooms), it will be your turn. Please follow their directions and move your entire party to the coordinating circle for check-in which is the small number (1,2,3 or 4) next to your name above.
Each graduate can invite 9 additional guests and will be walking with three other graduates. Your group of three graduates and representatives includes the graduates in the box above.  
Your family group, including yourself and up to 9 additional guests, should all be at the gate to enter together at [Assigned Time]. Once you enter the waiting area, there will be two things each graduate needs to fill out. One is a 3X5 card of how you want your class President to announce you for acceptance of your diploma (which you will keep with you and hand to President Mia) and the other is a required tracking form that includes names and phone numbers of everyone in your party. When this form is completed you will simply drop it into the box on the table. Then, your family members will report to the next circle waiting area (the same small number (1,2,3 or 4) next to your name)Mrs. Acosta, Mrs. Kleespies, and Mr. Scott will all be there to assist in making sure everything goes smoothly. 
Once they give you the go-ahead, enter the stadium/stage area. Your guests will move to the designated area on the track (again identifiable by your 1-4 number) and the graduates will line up in front of the steps to the right of the stage. The rest is history....the big walk across the stage. 
After your group walks across the stage and receives diplomas, graduates and their families will move to the Snack Shack where Tina and Sandy will be providing your diploma file contents, which includes your actual diploma. 
We ask that you then immediately depart the stadium to maintain the guidelines as to the number of people allowed in the stadium area and to allow the next set of graduates to pick up their diplomas.  Along the way there will be staff members to assist if you are not quite sure where to go including Darcie, Mrs. Nigh, Mrs. Nidiffer, Ms. Shearer, Mrs. Piscitello, Ms. Gutierrez, and Ms. Prudden. 
We are very excited to see you walk across the stage!!!  You have earned this exciting moment. YAHOOOO! 
** For your convenience and safety there will be hand sanitizer stations available, and masks are encouraged to be worn by all guests** 
Let me know if you have any questions or need additional clarification. YAHOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!
