The Berlin High School administration, teachers, staff, community and Board of Education has been trying to find ways to make the best of social distancing and celebrate our seniors.
We wanted to provide an update to the community on the events that are happening for our BHS Class of 2020.
Unfortunately, due to the unique circumstances and challenges we are faced with, the way we celebrate seniors will look a lot different this year but we hope the community can join in on making it extra special for the BHS Class of 2020.
Lawn sign delivery: Special Class of 2020 lawn signs, compliments of BHS, will be delivered to every senior student’s home the week of June 1.
Banners: Be on the lookout for special banners honoring the Class of 2020. They will be on display at Sage Park, across from Dairy Queen, and above the front entrance at BHS.
Front lobby decorations: Faculty and staff members created a display to honor our seniors for the front lobby windows of the school. Stop by and take a look.
Accountabilities/caps and gowns/photos: June 15-17 at BHS.
All senior students must complete the Google form sent out in order to sign up for a time to return all materials and settle any accountabilities. Caps and gowns will be distributed once accountabilities are cleared. Seniors will also have their photo taken in their cap and gown for our graduation video. Photos will be available for purchase through LifeTouch.
Cap and car decorating via social distancing: On June 19 students are invited to decorate their graduation caps and cars at home.
Car procession, yearbook pick-up and video tribute: On June 21 seniors and family members will meet, in a yet to be determined location, and proceed in their vehicles to BHS to receive their yearbooks and a small care package. Faculty and staff will be there to greet students and wish them well. A video tribute will also be posted on our website. More information to come regarding route and times.
Graduation: Aug. 7. The location will be Berlin High School.
The format is yet to be determined based on the state restrictions and approval of the local health department. The Governor announced that Phase 3 of the state reopening would potentially start around July 22 and may permit groups upwards of 100 people. We are hopeful that this may change, so that we can have a more traditional graduation ceremony.
Yearbook signing, prom and All Night Grad Party: TBD based on restrictions that will be in place Aug. 7 - 9. More information will be provided throughout the end of the school year and summer, so stay tuned.
The Berlin administration, Board of Education and our community have been working hard to provide the best experience for our high school seniors during this unprecedented time.
Thank you for your continued support. We look forward to celebrating our wonderful seniors in the coming weeks!
