Families and Graduates of the Class of 2020!
It is with great excitement that we announce a revised Class of 2020 Commencement schedule! In light of the current pandemic, we have adjusted graduation ceremonies as listed below, with all ceremonies being held locally in our high school stadiums.
Goal: An in-person graduation ceremony. Schools will allot a small number of tickets due to social distancing
If Necessary: A smaller scale ceremony that will only include the graduates. The graduation event will be live-streamed.
If Required: A virtual graduation ceremony, including recorded speeches, video slideshow of every graduate, and turning of tassels.
As we move closer to our graduation ceremonies, we will assess the many factors that will go into guiding our decision around the kind of ceremony we can hold. On or about Friday, July 10th, we will decide on which kind of ceremony we will conduct. It is our hope that this timeline will allow time for families to adjust plans, as needed.
Diplomas will be distributed the day of the graduation ceremony, or through the mail shortly thereafter. Student transcripts noting June graduation dates will be available for students upon request. The June graduation dates on transcripts allow for seniors to complete all their necessary requirements for future college and career endeavors.
It is impossible to put into words how we all feel about the Class of 2020. For a graduating class to lose so much of their senior year has brought us to tears. We want all of you to know how proud we are of all of you. We want you to know that we will do everything we can to show our love and appreciation for the grace you have exemplified during this difficult time. We look forward to celebrating all that you have accomplished!
