Screen capture from a virtual graduation video.

Extended school closures due to the COVID-19 pandemic meant that traditional end-of-year assemblies, plays, talent shows and graduations were not possible.

Working with central board staff, many schools were able to present virtual events to share with their school communities and families.

Secondary schools, for example, each produced a graduation video that featured some common elements including a message from the Director of Education, school principal and valedictorian along with school-specific messages and memories.

While this was certainly was not the end of the school year we planned for, there was still much to celebrate as we wrapped up the 2019-2020 school year. congratulations to all Limestone District School Board Class of 2020 graduates who continue to persevere despite the unprecedented challenges they have faced during their final year of high school.
