June 10, 2020

 

 RESOLUTION HONORING AND COMMENDING ALL
 CENTENNIAL SCHOOL DISTRICT SENIORS IN THE CLASS OF 2020
ON THEIR ACHIEVEMENTS AND GRADUATION
DURING EXTRAORDINARY ADVERSITY
 

            WHEREAS, the Centennial School District is comprised of five elementary schools, a middle school, a traditional four year high school, alternative learning center, and a correctional learning program; and,

            WHEREAS, every year students graduate from Centennial High School, Centennial Alternative Learning Center and the Pines School in ceremonies that celebrate their achievement in the presence of families and friends; and,

            WHEREAS, in the spring of the year 2020, the State of Minnesota, along with the entire United States of America, experienced the onset of pandemic virus, named COVID-19, which resulted in the emergency closure of in-person learning in schools; and,

            WHEREAS, the Centennial School District has provided distance learning for all students in accord with the guidance of the Minnesota Department of Education; and,

            WHEREAS, despite the difficulty presented by the pandemic and distance learning, the accompanying cancellation of all traditional school and extracurricular activities (such as spring sports, Prom, Advanced Placement and College entrance testing, academic competitions and awards), and the emotional toll of uncertainty surrounding personal health and the community economy, the graduating seniors were able to meet the requirements set by the State of Minnesota for graduation.

            NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the Centennial School Board accepts the certification by the principals of the Centennial High School, the Centennial Alternative Learning Center, and the Pines School that the graduating seniors of the class of 2020 have met all the requirements for graduation.

            BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Centennial School Board recognizes that this graduating class has met those requirements with grace and fortitude in the face of extraordinary circumstances.

            BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED the Centennial School Board commends the graduating Class of 2020 on their achievement.  The motion for the adoption of the foregoing resolution was duly seconded by Member Bettinger.

and upon vote being taken thereon, the following voted in favor thereof:  Guthmueller, Bettinger, Knisely, Wilson, Timm.

and the following voted against the same:  None.

whereupon said resolution was declared duly passed and adopted.

Dated:  June 8, 2020                                                  

BY ORDER OF THE SCHOOL BOARD
