    At this time we are still planning for an in person graduation.  The original ceremony was planned for May 31st.  If this date is not able to occure we have reserved June 28th, July 26th and August 7th as alternate dates.  We are also working with 104.3 FM on a radio commencement on May 23rd as well as TV 7 & 4 on a television commencement on May 30th.  In order for students to be featured in the TV commencement they need to complete and return this release form no later than May 8th.  The completed form may be emailed to mforsberg@clare.k12.mi.us, or dropped off in person at the meal distribution in front of the primary school on May 4th, or at cap/gown pick up at the high school on May 5th.

    Distance Learning
    Distance learning for students officially began on April 13th.  This distance learning will allow students the opportunity to earn credit for their second semester classes. Students should be sure to check their school emails regularly, as well as their google classrooms for assignments.  All assignments will be evaluated on a credit/no credit basis by teachers.  These assignments are required if students want to earn credit for the semester.

    Students without internet access may receive paper assignments in place of online work.  Students must contact the high school office, or one of their teachers to arrange for those packets.  Parents may pick up these packets for their students on Monday's, from 4-5:30 during meal distribution.  Completed packets can be returned the following Monday, and new packets will be available at that time.

    Unfortunately, this years prom will not take place as it was scheduled.  If the opportunity presents itself for such an event to be held at a later date our student council will explore those options.
