AND (if permitted)
In-Person Graduation -- IF social distancing guidelines in place at the time permit, an in-person (stadium) graduation will also occur in July.


YEARBOOKS

Due to the “shelter in place” at the yearbook production plant, yearbooks will be distributed during the summer, adhering to safety guidelines.

You can continue to purchase the yearbook online at www.balfour.com. The online store will remain open through mid-June. There will not be cash sales this year.

Virtual Yearbook Signing - Tribute is offering a free platform for students to create a virtual signing page. Each student will create his/her account and will be given a personal link to invite friends, classmates, and family to sign the yearbook by leaving personal messages. Please visit the Web site: www.tribute.co/balfour and select the DIY Tribute option. Use the code: Balfour2020 to get it for free.


SENIOR PROM

Unfortunately, the senior prom has been canceled. The loss of this once-in-a-lifetime memory is among the most difficult social results of the pandemic.
