School administrators in our area who would like to be preparing for ceremonies honoring graduating seniors are finding themselves these days stuck right between a rock and a hard place. I’ve spoken with a number of them in recent days and they’ve been faced with the task of trying to comply with edicts from the Ohio Department of Education, state and local health officials as they try to honor members of the class of 2020 and balancing that effort with the wishes of students and parents who want to see traditional in-person graduation ceremonies. They’d much rather be doing things like making sure caps and gowns fit or reviewing the remarks class officers and saluted students plan to make on graduation day. Instead many are having to organize and orchestrate virtual ceremonies with individual student videos to be posted on social media and school websites. Some parents are urging them to disregard the orders that have come down from Columbus limiting gatherings to no more than 10 people, putting administrators in a definite no-win situation. They’ve had no more of a say in the making of the orders we’re all living under because of Corona Virus concerns this spring than any of the rest of us. They’re just trying to make the best of a situation the likes none of us have ever seen before, and hopefully will never see again. That’s the way I see it.
