We want families to understand this is an optional event. All attendees, especially at-risk populations, should consider the risk of participating in large group gatherings before deciding to attend graduation.
Each graduate will be able to bring up to four guests. The graduate will be presented with four tickets upon arriving at the ceremony.
If there is heavy rain, thunderstorms, or severe weather, the Monday, June 15 graduation will be held on Tuesday, June 16 at the same times and locations.
To the best of our ability, a decision regarding a cancelation on either day will be made by 7:00 a.m. Families will receive a phone call, text message, and email through the WCPS Connect mass notification system. The announcement will also be shared on the WCPS website and social media channels.
A Family Celebration
In the unfortunate event that weather conditions prohibit an outdoor ceremony on June 15 and June 16, schools will continue with plans to hold individual family celebrations as announced by their principal.
The virtual graduations will air on YouTube Premiere as scheduled. These videos will feature speeches from principals, valedictorians, salutatorians, the Board of Education president, and other class speakers.
