Class of 2020 Graduation Information
Class of 2020 Graduation Information
Posted on 05/28/2020
Graduation 2020Graduations are important celebrations to mark the milestone of completing high school in the lives of students. During this unprecedented time, the District discussed with administrators, staff, and members of the Class of 2020 the best ways to honor our seniors. While everyone’s preference would be to have an in-person celebration, according to the Wisconsin Department of Health Services’ guidance, “Any graduation event held at this time should be virtual or non-contact, and should not physically convene groups of people together.”

We understand this is disappointing, and we are committed to honoring the Class of 2020 in the following ways:

Virtual Graduation Ceremony
The graduation ceremonies will be aired on Green Bay Public Television (Spectrum Channel 4) at 7:00 p.m. The ceremonies will also be available on YouTube. The District continues to keep open the possibility for schools to hold in-person graduation celebrations to honor the Class of 2020 in late summer, should circumstances allow.
