Class of 2020 Important Information

Dear Parents / Guardians of Class of 2020 Class Member,

 The last couple month have no doubt been a struggle for all of us, and it is not a surprise nor a secret that the end of the year has not been a normal and exciting / action-filled month with senior assemblies and celebrations.  We are, however, working feverishly to make the time rewarding and memorable for the Class of 2020 and their families.

With this in mind and our first few plans canceled due to the pandemic, I would like to share the most current plans to honor and recognize the Greensburg Salem High School Class of 2020.

Chronologically, a plan to move forward with assemblies (although virtual) has been developed as well as a Senior Salute Parade and a re-scheduled Commencement Exercise.  It is important to remember that nearly every plan is dependent upon the Governor's directive regarding red, yellow or green restrictions.
