Message for Grads and their Families
We are pleased to let you know that the province has provided us with guidelines that will allow us to celebrate our graduating Royals. Although our graduate celebrations will be different this year, we are happy to be able to finalize some plans to recognize our graduates as best as we can given the New Brunswick Public Health measures. Our district’s superintendent has provided a letter outlingin some of the guidelines we are required to follow in planning our graduate celebrations. You can view the letter by visiting: http://web1.nbed.nb.ca/sites/ASD-E/Documents/ASD-E%20Graduation%20Ceremony%20Update.pdf
Although we have been working on a plan to celebrate our grads for the last month, with the guidelines in place we are now able to submit our plan to the district for approval. In developing this plan, we have asked for input from the students who make up our graduate class executive. We have also considered the many different ideas sent in by parents and other community members to develop our plan. Once we have approval of the plan from the district, we will be able to share the details with grads and their families.
While waiting for approval of our plan, we can share the following confirmed details:
Safety of students, families, and staff will be our priority as we abide by the NB Public Health measures.
- We will hold our graduation ceremony on Monday, June 15th. Given the Public Health measures, our ceremony will look different. More details to follow once our plan is approved by the district.
- Each graduate will receive a gown, cap, and tassel sometime during the week of June 8th-12th. We will make them available to grads as soon as they arrive. The gowns this year are a lighter material souvenir gown and grads will keep them after the ceremony for other photos or celebrations.
- An updated grad fee will be posted as soon as our graduation ceremony plan receives approval from the district.
- We will be producing and distributing a traditional graduation ceremony program.
- Parents and guardians will have to complete a consent letter for all graduates wanting to participate in the ceremony or have their name in the graduation program. This consent letter will be available at the same time the grad fee is posted.
- We do our best to recognize scholarships and bursaries our graduates receive by including them in the graduation ceremony program. We can only recognize those awards that we know about. Please have your grad complete the form below for any scholarship or bursary they receive. They will need to use their school account to complete the form. https://forms.office.com/Pages/ResponsePage.aspx?id=318rTdLEEUmHCWjML0Zcn-P4yKhwcwNEm3aLblSbo8pUMjAxVFExQlc3SDZJRkMzRUdUUkVFSDBEVi4u
Hopefully, we will receive approval of our plan soon so we can finalize and share with you our graduation ceremony details.
