The Class of 2020
To the Oklahoma Board of Education, the senior class of 2020 will under no circumstance practice distance learning. We will have the opportunity to finish our senior year, just as every other student has in the past. We as a student body did not endure thirteen years of public school only to have it cut short. Basketball players and teams will have the opportunity to play for the title. Spring sports will have the opportunity to play their season. We will not accept anything but what a normal high school student senior year is like. I’m sure many of you remember your senior year vividly, all the memories made with classmates and through activities, and we would like to do the same. No matter what measures must be taken in order for this goal to be achieved, we will cooperate. If we have to continue to decide whether or not it is safe to go back on a week to week basis, we will cooperate. If we have to extend our school year, we will cooperate. Even if we have to come back next fall, we will cooperate. We, the class of 2020, will have our voices heard, and all we ask if that you think about all of the seniors who are being effected by this decision. We ask, that you consider us when making your decision this Wednesday.
