North Judson-San Pierre Prepares for End of School Year, Sets Graduation Date

The North Judson-San Pierre School Corporation is finalizing plans for the end of the school year. Superintendent Dr. Annette Zupin reviewed the end-of-year plans with the school board Tuesday. Today is the last official eLearning Day, and all assignments are due by Sunday.

Meanwhile, the elementary school is planning a parade for tomorrow afternoon. From 4:00 to 5:00 p.m., teachers will line up outside of the school, and families will have the chance to drive by and greet them.

A drive-through event to let students pick up their report cards and personal belongings and drop off library books and textbooks is planned for the week of June 1. Dr. Zupin said each school will share specific information once plans are finalized.

High school graduation is now scheduled for Sunday, July 19. Zupin said an exact time and other details still have to be worked out. School facilities are closed until June 30 by order of the governor, and Zupin said she didn’t understand how other schools are being allowed to hold graduation before that.

The superintendent thanked students, staff, and school board members for their response to the COVID-19 situation. “And the truth of the matter is that there’s not one person associated with this school who hasn’t stepped up to the challenge,” Zupin added. “So I just want to say a big thank-you to everyone because people just did what we need to do.”

As for next school year, Zupin said she has some ideas, but the situation is still too fluid to make any major plans.
