Hi clay County: this is David Brodsky Superintendent of Schools here in Clay County today, I want to give a shout out to the class of 2020. As many of you are aware, governor Ron de Santos on Saturday had canceled public schools in the state of Florida until the end of the year in Clay County. That means we're going to continue deaths, distance learning until the end of the year. It also means that many of you have questions about graduation now that we're not going to be in session at the end of the year.
Unfortunately, the original scheduled date of May 29th is now going to be postponed until July I just want to assure you that I'm committed to having a traditional graduation ceremony and all of our high schools in July. Of course, we are going to have to follow the latest CDC federal and state guidelines related to large groups of people gathering at that time. I know as a former high school principal and the uncle of a current graduate of the class of 2020.
Just how important the graduation ceremony is to all of our seniors we're committed to doing that within the guidelines that are available at that time. I also want to announce that we're going to do a special celebration of seniors during the night of the original scheduled graduation ceremony, which is May 29th, that's a night that we're going to honor students, their accomplishments and, in general, the class of 2020. Certainly, the class of 2020 did not sign up for a worldwide pandemic.
We live in extraordinary times and I just wanted to reassure seniors that we're going to do everything possible to honor this class of 2020. It's very important to me. I've spoken to all the high school principals, it's very important to them, and I recognize just how important it is to all of the parents out there and extended family members. So that is our plan for graduation I, hope, I've answered all of those questions and I just thank everyone for the success of distance learning and everyone's grace compassion and flexibility for one another. Thank you.
