The events will be guided by public health protocols in place at the time of our graduation events. We will monitor carefully and take all necessary precautions to maximize the safety and well-being of students, staff, parents, and those who may want to attend and support our Class of 2020.

“Our seniors told us two things: they want something to happen in May to celebrate, and they want a traditional cap and gown event that should happen before the beginning of August,” said Superintendent Dr. Alicia Thompson.
