UPCOMING GRADUATION CEREMONY PRECAUTION STATEMENT

Our delayed graduation season is getting closer for Lebanon High School, Mt. Juliet High School, Watertown High School and Wilson Central High School. Next week, we will honor our 2020 graduates and we couldn’t be more proud of each and every one of them for all that they have accomplished and sustained during the 2019-2020 school year.

As we continue to make final preparations for upcoming graduation ceremonies, we want to remind our students, families and guests that our commitment to honoring graduating Seniors is equally as important as providing a safe and healthy environment for those who attend. However, to do this - we need your help. We need your patience, and we need your willingness to comply with safe health guidelines that have been presented by the State of Tennessee.

When you arrive, please park your vehicle in a designated spot for graduation guests. Immediately make your way to the graduation sites on our campuses. Please be mindful of those around you and create the highly suggested six feet spacing between you and others not associated with your group. We will have staff available that will be collecting graduation admittance tickets. We ask that you be patient and provide adequate spacing during this process. Once you enter the graduation site, please make your way to the designated seating areas. In an effort to respect ongoing pandemic precautions, seating arrangements will be situated in a way that supports precautionary measures. When exiting graduation ceremonies, please do so in a patient and orderly fashion. Our schools may provide additional instructions on site, so please be aware of that.

If you have any concerns about attending graduation ceremonies, please let your graduate know. Each graduate is given a limited number of tickets provided to them by their school, so please respect their limited guest ticket requirements. If you are feeling symptomatic prior to graduation ceremonies, please refrain from attending. We strongly suggest that you wear a protective mask in an effort to minimize exposure.

We understand completely that the circumstances surrounding the ongoing pandemic have created many inconveniences. However, our priority is doing all that we can to create a safe environment for everyone involved.

Thank you very much for your cooperation and help as we send off these amazing Seniors to their next journey!
