"We care about them, we’re thinking of them every day. We hate that this has happened, but we’re trying to make the best of a bad situation," Keri Rathbun, Northside principal.  

While students have had to adapt, the district wanted the students to know they care about them. 

"The accomplishment is still there, they still have made it through 13 years of school.. starting at kindergarten and going through their senior year. It’s such an accomplishment and it’s important for them to know that we see them and we experience this with them and honor their success," said Lisa Miller, Southside principal. 

If a student did not get a yard sign, they can pick one up at their cap and gown pick up on Wednesday and Thursday.
