Dear 8th Grade Families:
We wish to provide you with an update on the 8th grade promotion ceremonies. We learned today from our county health officials that social distancing will most likely be relaxed on June 15th, allowing for a higher stadium capacity at Ocean View High School. Based on this information, we are pleased to announce that each student will now be given a total of 4 tickets for guests to attend the promotion ceremony. All individuals attending the promotion ceremony will still need to wear a face covering. In addition, your school’s principal will be following up with specific details related to your school’s end of year activities and promotions. Virtual Academy students are invited to attend their home school promotions.
