High School

On Friday, May 8, MDE released the following guidance regarding Graduation ceremonies:

“The safest way to observe graduation/commencement is for everyone to stay home. Indoor graduations and ceremonies held outside in stadiums and footballs fields are not permitted.”

We will continue to plan and provide a celebration that complies with this guidance while honoring the amazing work and achievement of our Class of 2020.  Thank you all for your patience and support as we navigate this difficult time together. To view the entire guidance document, click here.
