Students, teachers enjoy ‘summer send-off.’

By Allison Scarbrough, Editor.

PENTWATER — Students received a ‘summer send-off’ from their teachers Thursday, June 4, after months of not seeing them face-to-face due to the state-wide COVID-19 school building closure.

Parents drove their students to the back of the building where they dropped off their Chrome Books for the summer and picked up personal items that had been left in the school building. They then drove around the school to the front of the building, where their teachers and school staff members greeted them from the front lawn. They waved to each other and said their goodbyes — at a proper social distance.

“This is a good way for our staff and students to have closure at the end of the school year; turn things in; and have our final summer send-off,” said Superintendent/Principal Scott Karaptian. “They got to say their goodbyes and get everybody ending the school year with a face-to-face visit. We want to let them know that we’re still here and that we still care and hopefully we’ll see them back in the fall with business as usual.”

The Pentwater High School Class of 2020 graduation ceremony is set for Thursday, July 9, at 7 p.m. on the Pentwater Village Green.

In the event of rain, the commencement ceremony will take place in the school gym with some crowd restrictions and safe distancing and safety measures, Karapatian said.
