Graduation Health and Safety Protocols for Students and Guests
Dear 2020 Graduates and Families,
First, congratulations on your commencement and all you have accomplished during your educational journey with Brevard Public Schools!
As you may have seen from the announcement last week, schools will be holding outdoor graduation ceremonies from July 18th through the 25th. Your individual schools will be reaching out to you this week with specific event details. Our goal is to provide our graduates with an in-person ceremony where they can be surrounded by classmates and family and be individually recognized while receiving their diploma. Doing so, however, will require a commitment on all our parts to the protocols identified. Enclosed with this letter are the BPS Graduation Health & Safety Protocols for all schools. Please familiarize yourself with this information and the noted requirements. Should there be a change of course or new directives from state and local government and/or health authorities, our schools are prepared to consider alternative options.
For the protection of our students and employees, BPS staff will be working with local law enforcement to assist with crowd control and compliance. Individuals found to be in violation of these protocols will be asked to leave. I have no doubt that our graduates and guests will conduct themselves in a manner that is safe, responsible, courteous, and respectful of one another.
I want to thank you for your patience as we deliberated options for providing our senior class the in-person graduation they were hoping for, and for your understanding and flexibility as we execute on these plans. I hope you enjoy this well-earned milestone and will forever remember your time at BPS.
Congratulations again, be safe and best of luck in all your future endeavors!
