We are excited to announce that Monday, May 18, from 8:00-12:00, we will have awards for all grade levels during packet drop off. We know you and your parents have been working hard, and we want to recognize not only that work, but your work for the entire school year. Parents, you may pull through the car rider line to drop off work as normal. At that time students can get out to receive their awards and take a picture with their teacher, if they would like, before hopping back into the car to exit the line. While this is not the same as our normal end of the year ceremony, we still wanted to recognize you for your hard work and see you one more time before summer. We miss you and will see you soon.

For a Printer Friendly Version of the Letter follow this link https://5il.co/fy22 GRADUATION 2020 May 7, 2020 Attention Seniors: We have received new guidelines for graduation from TEA as of this morning. As a result, our graduation date, time, and location has changed. Please read the following fully and carefully. According to the State of Texas and the Texas Education Agency, outside graduation is now allowed beginning May 29, 2020. We will be holding our graduation at 8 p.m. on May 30, 2020, at the football stadium of Warren High School. In the case of inclement weather on May 30, we will either hold graduation at 8 p.m. on May 31 or June 1. Each Senior will be provided with TEN wrist bands to pass out to whomever you choose. Every Senior will need to come to the school on May 11, 2020, between 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. to pick up their ten wrist bands AND questionnaires and dress code guidelines for graduation. Every person who gets a wrist band MUST, by state law, fill out the questionnaire to be allowed into the stadium. Personnel will be present to check each personโ€™s temperature as well upon entering the stadium. Any person with a 100-degree temp or higher will not be allowed into the stadium. Strict seating and social distancing guidelines set forth by the state must be followed while everyone is inside the stadium. Someone will direct people entering the stadium to their seating arrangements, and mingling together of groups will not be allowed. If you do not need all ten of your wrist bands, feel free to share them with whichever classmate that might be able to use them. Also, please be aware that we must follow the rule of law sent to us from the state of Texas and TEA, so the completed questionnaires must be presented, temperatures must be checked, and social distancing must be followed in order to gain entrance to the stadium for graduation. Thank you for your attention to this matter. Congratulations on your upcoming graduation! We hope to see you soon! Sincerely, Spurger ISD
