update from Mrs. Campbell about graduation: 5/3/20

A virtual graduation ceremony will include all the segments of a traditional ceremony. This week we are filming footage of our students walking, smiling, laughing, and applauding in their caps and gowns as they would if they were at the arena. Our students will also be recorded walking and facing the camera as they would when they would be handed the diploma. All School Board Member, Superintendent, Principal, Teacher, and Student speeches will be filmed. We will be filming our students saying the pledge, singing the national anthem, our alma mater, and our special senior song. After May 11th all footage is being sent to a Production company that will edit the film and then develop a final product of a graduation ceremony. ERHS will be given a link to share with our families the final product, which is our virtual ceremony all completed and professional done. The link will be live at 8:20 PM on June 1st. We are currently working with the Production company to have the ceremony available for purchase, which information will be coming soon.

Our live ceremony is still being developed but we plan on having all traditional elements at the school site in later July. We will more than likely have to have 3 separate ceremonies in alpha order to accommodate social distancing and CDC regulations, but more importantly to ensure you can have a few family members in attendance. All ceremonies will take place on one day so that all of our seniors are celebrated on the same day. More information is coming soon!
