The Class of 2020 will have a story to tell like no graduating class before it, most school districts in the Houston area having to adapt to ever changing circumstances in the Covid19 pandemic. Proms have been cancelled and hair appointments postponed, hearts broken as the adults get their acts together and figure out how this rite of passage will be celebrated by these seniors. Nothing is certain yet.
Your best bet will be to check with your school district’s website on a regular basis as it seems to be one of the most efficient ways of communicating information to parents. They’re also sending emails.
Houston ISD is looking for feedback and has a survey for students to participate in.
Katy ISD is still sticking to their schedule, though have June dates as backups in case.
Willis is changing their location because an availability opened up when another graduation shut down and Conroe is still on schedule though looking at back-up dates and so it goes across southeast Texas. More fluid than the waters of Harvey.
It’s what you find across the area…uncertainty, not unlike the emotions of 18 year olds leaving the comfort of their friends and classmates and venturing off into life as adults. Graduation pictures have been cancelled, traditions broken, plans changed, futures uncertain. These graduates will have, at the very least, a story to tell.
