Dallas ISD is launching the "Finish Strong" campaign, which aims to bring 100% of seniors back to in-person learning starting April 12.

Through this campaign, Dallas ISD said the district is working to make the Class of 2021's closing weeks as memorable as possible by urging seniors to return to on-campus learning full time.

According to Dallas ISD, safety will be the priority throughout this campaign, and the district will continue its established safety measures like social distancing, wearing masks, sanitation stations, and plexiglass dividers.

With high schools able to safely serve more in-person students, the district said all seniors are urged to return to on-campus learning full-time starting April 12.

While continuing to follow safety practices, Dallas ISD high schools will offer fun, memorable activities for seniors, the district said.

"I need to make sure that they are getting their work in. That their attendance is on point,” Lincoln High School Principal Johnna Weaver said. “It is my job to make sure that those kids are here and we are able to support them.”

Weaver and her staff have planned a Senior Breakfast for the students and their parents from April 12.

“I’m partnering with the parents, with the seniors and my staff and we are going to finish strong,” Weaver said. “We’ve been planning some fun stuff along with that great academic stuff they must do to finish strong.”

Mark Ramirez, deputy chief of school leadership at the Dallas Independent School District, joins NBC 5 to discuss the “Finish Strong” initiative.
