•Catch-up week for all Sanborn Central students is May 11th – 15th with no new assignments being given to any grade level. All work previously assigned will be due to the teachers by May 19th. High School grades are due to be completed by May 20th. Report Cards will be mailed once all grades have been finalized and entered. Final official school day is May 19th. All student’s school material (books, computers, etc.) will be brought back on May 18th and 19th. High School students will also pre-register for fall classes during this time; 

•Graduation ceremony will be held on May 30th. The exercise will be viewed in person by the graduate’s parents and siblings. It will be made available online and on the school’s Santel channel.  Once the students receive their diplomas, they will be arranged on the sidewalk in front of the school.  Here, anyone who would like, can “drive thru” and wish them well, and even drop off a card in a basket in front of each graduate;

•The members are potentially looking at small group workouts being made available in the gym and weight room mid-June (Woonsocket is targeting June 1 for this); 

•The Board is continuing to monitor the state and national information on the current situation and how to respond. They will be working with other local districts to develop a set of guidelines to which they can all draw from in planning efforts; and
