2020 Graduation Photos

Senior Class of 2020: Good news! We will offer graduates the opportunity to take individual professional photos in full academic regalia with their diploma covers on stage by our beautiful stadium at EAHS!

We are truly disappointed that we are not able to do a grand celebration to honor your high school graduation. We have been working to find an opportunity to celebrate each of you and remain within the safety guidelines of our region.

Members of the Class of 2020 will be able to be photographed, as another opportunity to commemorate your achievements and provide you with a memento of your success.

Come to be photographed on your scheduled date and time (see below) — in full cap and gown, and any cords you may have earned. Bring your diploma covers to receive your diploma too!

Virtual Graduation information

Hello Seniors!

As we move closer to our Virtual Graduation Ceremony, you have a very important task to complete. Please log into your student email address, look for a message from Marching Order, and follow the directions and links provided. If you have any questions, please use the contact information listed in the email, or you can reach out to the high school.

We look forward to honoring all of our graduates at our Virtual Graduation Ceremony on July 23rd.

Professionally,

A Letter from the Principal

Hello Tomcats!

First, my apologies for not sending this message to you a bit sooner. However, today I want to provide you with some important updates regarding events designed to celebrate our Class of 2020.

We recently received further direction on graduation from the Kane County Health Department, as well as the Kane County Regional Office of Education. Together they recommend that school districts in Kane County do not conduct any type of in-person graduation ceremony, based on current levels of COVID-19 activity in Kane County. DuPage County officials have also issued these recommendations.

The Restore Illinois Plan specifies different phases. We expect to move to Phase 3 by May 29. Phase 3 allows for gatherings of 10 or fewer. You may have heard about other high schools holding small in-person graduations. These events are being held in other counties where they do not have the same limitations.

Unfortunately, from the direction and recommendations given, we must cancel the Prom event that was rescheduled for July 18, as well as the in-person graduation ceremony scheduled for August 1.

We feel so badly for all our students and families, and we know you are disappointed, too.

If there is any consolation through all of this bad news, it is that through a creative and safe way, we are able to honor our Class of 2020 through a “virtual” graduation. Please be sure to see information on the Virtual Graduation Ceremony scheduled for July 23 at 5:00 p.m. I strongly encourage all our Class of 2020 to participate.

The Virtual Graduation Ceremony will allow us to have key aspects of a traditional ceremony with speeches and a student processional. Students will have an individual slide and audio clip that recognizes their graduation and their accomplishments.

We want to do everything possible to celebrate and recognize our seniors. In addition to distributing yard signs, spotlighting our Seniors on social media, and holding the professional virtual graduation, East High will publish a booklet celebrating and commemorating our Class of 2020.

The last week of May we also hosted a drive-through cap & gown pick-up at East High in vehicles. I hope you and your student were able to attend. If not, please stop by Door #8 of the high school between 8:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. to pick up your cap and gown, cords and honors.

Seniors, please continue to monitor your student email account for important messages from StageClip and MarchingOrder. Please watch the district/high school websites, social media accounts, and phone blast system, for updated information.

If you have any questions on this information, please know you can reach out directly with questions at jsimpson@d131.org or 630-299-8130. Thank you for your understanding and continued support.

Professionally,
Jonathan Simpson, Principal

East High School to celebrate Class of 2020 with virtual graduation

East Aurora High School will celebrate the Class of 2020 with a Virtual Graduation Ceremony. The online event will take place on Thursday, July 23, at 5:00 p.m.

The virtual graduation event is being held in response to the current challenges surrounding the COVID-19 global health crisis. The May 22 traditional graduation ceremony was postponed and is currently rescheduled to take place on August 1 at Northern Illinois University.

While there is no clear indication on whether it will be possible to hold a traditional ceremony in August, a committee of East High leadership, including students and parents, all wanted to be certain the Class of 2020 was honored for their accomplishments.

“While we know that the virtual event doesn’t make up for an in-person graduation ceremony, we still want to celebrate and honor the resilient Class of 2020,” said Jon Simpson, principal at East High School. “Moving forward with the virtual graduation gives us a safe opportunity to celebrate.”

East High School has partnered with Herff Jones, in collaboration with technology partners StageClip and MarchingOrder, to hold the virtual graduation ceremony and recognize this year’s graduates.

Seniors will soon be contacted by Herff Jones and its partners through their District 131 student email address, with direction on how their photo and information will be collected prior to the final celebration.

The virtual ceremony will include all speeches that would take place in a traditional graduation, as well as recognition of academic awards and honors.

On the day of the virtual graduation ceremony, students and their families will visit a website hosted by StageClip that will allow them to experience a communal moment while they all watch the ceremony all at once. They will be able to view their photos and hear their names announced as part of a customized, personalized graduation experience.


Class of 2020 Cap and Gown Pick Up on May 27th

CG pick up

Cap and Gown pick up will be available for members of the Class of 2020 on Wednesday, May 27 from 11:00 a.m.  – 4:00 p.m. at East Aurora High School along Tomcat lane by Door #8.

Students will enter East Aurora High School through State St., or 6th Ave, following a prescribed path that allows them to pick-up their cap & gown as well as diploma cover. We will also have senior yard signs available for those students that have not picked them up yet. In order to ensure proper social distancing, students are not allowed to exit their vehicle during this time, and no one will be permitted to walk through the line. *Please note that a photo ID will be required at the time of pick-up.

 


Senior Class Yard Sign Pick Up

  • Drive up pick-up is Friday, May 8th from 11 AM-5 PM
  • Students will enter the parking lot behind the stadium and follow the cones to form two lines down Tomcat Ln.
  • Students will not exit their cars.
  • Students need to bring their ID with them and they will be given the yard sign.

East High announces rescheduled dates for prom, graduation

East Aurora High School has announced new dates for two major events affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

East High’s Prom has been rescheduled to Saturday, July 18, 2020, from 6:00 p.m. to 11:59 p.m. at the Hilton Double Tree, Lisle/Naperville.

The Class of 2020 Graduation Ceremony has been rescheduled to Saturday, August 1, 2020, at 2:30 p.m. at the Northern Illinois University Convocation Center.

District 131 has formed a district-wide committee to explore options for other events affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The committee will develop additional back up plans, as needed, in the event that the August 1 Graduation cannot be held due to restrictions related to COVID-19.


Cap and Gown Ordering for the Class of 2020

With final exams in full swing and the start of second semester right around the corner, the East Aurora High School Graduation Ceremony on May 22 will be here before we know it.  Despite over 750 expected graduates, only 500 have already ordered their Cap and Gown for the event, and far fewer have paid for the garments. Any member of the senior class with questions about their cap and gown order can call Elizbeth Elsner at Herff Jones at 815-756-4743 or email her at eelsner-1@herffjones.com. If a member of the class of 2020 knows they have not ordered their cap and gown yet, they can do so at www.HerffJonesIL.com. Follow the link below for step by step instructions on ordering caps and gowns online.

Una carta del director

29 de mayo de 2020

Hola Tomcats!

Primero, mis disculpas por no enviarles este mensaje más temprano. Sin embargo, hoy quiero brindarles algunas actualizaciones importantes, con respecto a los eventos diseñados para celebrar nuestra Clase del 2020.

Recientemente, recibimos más instrucciones sobre la graduación del Departamento de Salud del Condado de Kane, así como de la Oficina Regional de Educación del Condado de Kane. Juntos recomiendan, que los distritos escolares en el Condado de Kane, no realicen ningún tipo de ceremonia de graduación en persona, según los niveles actuales de Actividad del COVID-19 en el Condado de Kane. Los funcionarios del condado de DuPage, también han emitido estas recomendaciones.

El plan Restore Illinois, especifica diferentes faces. Esperamos pasar a la Face 3, antes del 29 de Mayo. La Face 3 permite reuniones de 10 o menos. Es posible que haya oído hablar de otras escuelas secundarias, con pequeñas graduaciones en persona. Estos eventos se llevan a cabo en otros condados, donde no tienen las mismas limitaciones.

Desafortunadamente, de acuerdo a las direcciones y recomendaciones dadas, debemos cancelar el evento de graduación que se reprogramó para el 18 de Julio, así como la ceremonia de graduación en persona programada para el 1 de Agosto.

Nos sentimos muy mal por todos nuestros estudiantes y familias y sabemos que ustedes también están decepcionados.

Si hay algún consuelo, a través de todas estas malas noticias, es que mediante una manera creativa y segura, podemos honrar nuestra Clase del 2020, a través de una graduación “virtual”. Asegúrese de ver información sobre la Ceremonia de graduación virtual, programada para el 23 de Julio, a las 5:00 p.m. Aliento encarecidamente, a toda nuestra Clase del 2020 a participar.

La Ceremonia de Graduación Virtual nos permitirá, tener aspectos claves de una ceremonia tradicional con discursos y una procesión estudiantil. Los estudiantes tendrán una diapositiva individual y un clip de audio, que reconoce su graduación y sus logros.

Queremos hacer todo lo posible para celebrar y reconocer a nuestros Seniors. Además de distribuir carteles de jardÍn, destacar a nuestros Seniors en las redes sociales y celebrar la graduación virtual profesional, East High publicará un folleto, celebrando y conmemorando nuestra Clase del 2020.

Esta semana, también organizamos una recogida en vehículos, de la toga y birrete en la East High. Espero que usted y su estudiante hayan podido asistir. Si no es así, pase por la puerta 8 de la escuela secundaria, entre las 8:00 a.m. y la 1:00 p.m. para recoger su toga, birrete, cordones y honores.

Seniors, continúen monitoreando su cuenta de correo electrónico del estudiante, para ver si hay mensajes importantes de StageClip y MarchingOrder. Miren los sitios web del distrito/escuela secundaria, las cuentas de redes sociales y el sistema de llamadas telefónicas, para obtener información actualizada.

Si tienen alguna pregunta sobre esta información, sepan que pueden comunicarse directamente conmigo o enviar sus preguntas por correo electrónico a info@d131.org.

Gracias por su comprensión y apoyo continuo.

Profesionalmente,

Jonathan Simpson, Director
Escuela Secundaria del Este de Aurora

East High School celebrará la clase del 2020 con una graduación virtual

East Aurora High School celebrará la clase del 2020, con una ceremonia virtual de graduación. El evento en línea tendrá lugar el Jueves, 23 de Julio, a las 5:00 p.m.

El evento virtual de graduación se llevará a cabo, en respuesta a los desafíos actuales que rodean la crisis de salud global, del COVID-19. La ceremonia tradicional de graduación, del 22 de Mayo, fue pospuesta y actualmente está reprogramada, para el 1 de Agosto, en Northern Illinois University.

Si bien no hay una indicación clara, sobre si será posible celebrar una ceremonia tradicional en Agosto, un comité de liderazgo del East High, incluidos estudiantes y padres, quieren asegurarse de que la Clase del 2020, sea honrada por sus logros.

“Si bien sabemos que el evento virtual no compensa una ceremonia de graduación en persona, todavía queremos celebrar y honrar a la resistente Clase del 2020”, dijo Jon Simpson, director del East High School. “Seguir adelante con la graduación virtual nos brinda una oportunidad segura para celebrar”.

East High School se ha asociado con Herff Jones, en colaboración con los socios tecnológicos StageClip y MarchingOrder, para celebrar la ceremonia virtual de graduación y reconocer a los graduados de este año.

Herff Jones y sus socios contactarán a los Seniors, a través de la dirección de correo electrónico del estudiante del Distrito 131, con instrucciones sobre cómo se recopilarán sus fotos e información, antes de la celebración final.

La ceremonia virtual, incluirá todos los discursos que tendrían lugar en una graduación tradicional, así como el reconocimiento de premios y honores académicos.

El día de la ceremonia virtual de graduación, los estudiantes y sus familias visitarán un sitio web facilitado por StageClip, que les permitirá experimentar un momento comunitario, mientras todos miran la ceremonia al mismo tiempo. Podrán ver sus fotos y escuchar sus nombres como parte de una experiencia de graduación personalizada.
