Haven High School Class of 2020 and USD 312 community.
I wanted to send a communication to everyone to update you on our plans for Haven High School graduation. As we are all aware, COVID-19 has changed the landscape for all of our daily functions. Through monitoring current levels of infection and consulting with the Reno County Health Department, it has been determined that graduation will be held outdoors at the Haven High School Stadium. This is to increase social distancing of the attendees and not restrict attendance numbers. Patrons are welcome to sit in the stands or bring lawn chairs and increase social distance to their preference. Audience members are free to place lawn chairs on the track but asked to refrain from being on the football field or blocking any sidewalks used for ADA purposes. Audience members are also encouraged to bring water for hydration.
Time Change: Due to the time of the year, we are moving the ceremony up to 9 AM to decrease warm temperature exposure. Graduates will need to report to the gym at 8:15 am.
Inclement Weather: If the weather does not allow the event to take place on Saturday 18th it will be moved to Sunday at 7 PM.
Prom: After consulting with the Reno County Health Department and implementing responsible citizenship, USD 312 will not hold a rescheduled prom as hoped, due to current COVID-19 numbers. This is a tough decision that weighs heavily on the hearts of our leadership team, but it is the responsible thing to do.
Thank you for your flexibility and understanding during this time.
Travis Moore, Principal
