Dear 2020 Graduates and HSE Recipients,
It is with a heavy heart but a keen eye toward safety for our students and families that we must postpone the June 2020 NEO graduation.
We will make available an online celebration of graduates on June 18 so that students may celebrate safely at home with their closest loved ones. More details regarding the format of this will be made available soon, including ways students can send in photos and families can send best wishes.
For those students who wish to celebrate their achievements in-person at a more traditional ceremony, we will host a graduation event in late November or early December 2020. Details will be made available at a later date.
We know this situation is not ideal. We know that it does not begin to replace a traditional, timely graduation. However, we also know that our first priority is keeping our students and community safe.
The NEO staff and board of directors could not be more proud of our seniors. Our mission is the educational success of our students, and we look forward to graduation every year.
Please keep an eye out for more details in the coming month about the virtual celebration and opportunities to participate.
Stay safe and healthy,
NEO Administrative Team
