Message from Dr. Mundell about graduation, DOH guidance

As Dr. Pitterson communicated in his most recent letter to senior parents, the BKW graduation ceremony for the Class of 2020 will be held on June 24, at Jericho Drive-in, at 9 p.m.

We have worked closely with the senior class over the past month to gather their thoughts and design a graduation ceremony that reflects their best hopes for the event given these unprecedented circumstances and legal restrictions.

So there is clarity about the limitations imposed upon schools regarding graduation, please see the document linked below from the NYS Department of Health. As a district, we have taken steps to empower our seniors to design a ceremony that reflects their hopes, and we have done so in a manner that complies with all expectations in the current environment. We appreciate your ongoing support and flexibility as we all adjust to situations like this.

At the end of the day, our students were given a voice and stepped up to the plate with their best effort. We will celebrate their accomplishments. They are awesome!!!

Dr. Timothy Mundell
Superintendent of Schools
