GRADUATION CEREMONY ANNOUNCEMENT: May 21, 2020

This week, principals from our high schools collaborated and strategized to create a plan that would accommodate a traditional graduation ceremony under the current circumstances. Restrictions and modifications have been put in place that would comply with current state health guidelines. This updated plan significantly reduces student and family volume, and allows for the rescheduled June graduation dates to commence. Following this new proposed plan, Director of Schools, Dr. Donna Wright was in agreeance that this plan could proceed with the added safeguards and restrictions.

Below are the finalized Class of 2020 graduation ceremonies dates/times for Wilson County Schools.
