In closing, I would like to thank you once again for your continued support. Our goal is to keep Graded’s campus open as long as possible. Collective community responsibility is critical to accomplishing this goal. I thank you for your family’s compliance with health and safety recommendations, as we think and act compassionately and care for one another.
