• Dear Graduates, Parents, and Supportive Community Members;

    As I am sure you have heard, the Superintendent in taking advice from the Center for Disease Control and the Osceola County Health Department has made the difficult decision of changing the format for how we are graduating students this school year.  I wholeheartedly support the Superintendent's decision as it is in the best interest of our graduates, graduates' families, and school staff.

    To try and make things a little pleasurable for our graduates, we have come up with a plan to help them celebrate in a small way.  Students need to call the school and arrange for an appointment to come to Zenith and take a picture on our school stage with our official Zenith school backdrop.  Students may also have the chance to take a second picture in front of our "virtual green wall," where we plan to add a unique backdrop for them. 

    If you choose to come to the school and take some pictures, please understand that we are adhering to strict social distancing procedures.  If you come to Zenith, you must wear a mask, all individuals who come with you must wear a mask.  Your appointment time will be for 10 minutes, so please be on time or a few minutes early.  When you arrive at the school, phone the front office and let them know you are here.  A member of my staff will come out and greet you and bring you back to the cafeteria.  Once the pictures have been taken, we, unfortunately, will ask you to leave right away so the next family can come in. 

    I understand this is a letdown for our graduates who have worked so hard and have earned this opportunity for recognition.  However, the Superintendent has a responsibility to ensure safety first, and I believe her decision is well thought out and appropriate.  I hope you will consider coming to Zenith and having your picture taken.  If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please don't hesitate to call:  407-846-3976 or you can email me directly at Robert.studly@osceolaschools.net.

    Sincerely,

    Robert Studly
