Class of 2020 Graduation Photo OpportunityDear AE Class of 2020,

Given that we are not able to have the opportunity for a face to face graduation as we originally hoped to do August 3, we would like to provide you with an opportunity to take photographs on stage as you might have in a face to face ceremony. On Monday August 3rd and Tuesday August 4th we will have time slots for you to sign up for between the hours of 1-3PM and 6-8PM.

Because Covid cases continue to rise in Appleton, it will be important that you follow these guidelines so we can assure your safety and the safety of our staff.

● Signing up: You will sign up for a time using LINK FOR MY CONFERENCE TIME, the online parent teacher conferencing scheduler we use for conferences during the year. Sign up will remain open until August 4th at 12PM.
   ○ Once you sign up, you will need to stick to your allotted time.
   ○ Time will be limited to 5 minutes.
● Come in your cap and gown for the actual photo.
● Wear a mask (All members of your immediate family will also have to wear masks). You may remove your mask for the photo.
● Limit those in your photo party to immediate family (All members of your immediate family will also have to wear masks).
● Someone from your party needs to take the photo.
● Stay on schedule. We will do some sanitizing between families, but we also recommend that you wash your hands as you leave. Hand sanitizer will be provided.
● All individuals will enter through the John St. parking entrance and leave through the Emmers St. entrance (Signage will be provided). Picture setup will be located in East’s Auditorium. You will also have a chance to take a photo outside the Emmers entrance weather permitting.
● Once the photo opportunities are completed, please leave the campus. We want to maintain appropriate capacity numbers while on campus.
● Abide by social distancing recommendations of keeping at least six feet of distance from non family members.

Finally, we will continue to work to find a time where you may celebrate with your classmates. As the pandemic continues to evolve, we are uncertain what this may look like, but please be assured that we are committed to finding a time where you and your classmates can come together for closure. In the meantime, we hope that you will be able to take advantage of this opportunity and create some memories with these photos.

If you have any questions please contact Appleton East at 832-6212
