Important changes to indoor graduation ceremonies scheduled for the end of July
The public health crisis that we continue to face in the Wichita community is prompting the Wichita Public Schools to make a change to our plans for in-person commencement ceremonies at the end of July. We have made the decision to cancel indoor commencement ceremonies scheduled for July 24-26. Though we know this will come as a disappointment to our graduating seniors, we believe it to be the best decision for the safety and health of our students, families and staff.
Please don’t give up on the opportunity to celebrate graduation! Each of our high schools will hold a safe and appropriate celebration on their school campus at the end of July on the same weekend we were planning to hold the indoor ceremonies. That will look different at every school, and each of you will soon be hearing from your high school principal with more information.
Principals will communicate their celebration plans with students and families later in July.
There is no question that the graduating class of 2020 will have a unique story to tell as you reflect on your senior year. Thank you for being flexible and resilient as we plan for the best and most appropriate celebration possible to conclude your K-12 educational experience!
KWCH and KSCW TV stations created 2020 Senior Celebrations for each high school. Watch each celebration through the links below, on the WPS YouTube Channel, and on WPS-TV at 7:30 p.m. on Cox Channel 20 and online.
