Siblings may join parents if they live in the same household. We will have the stands sectioned off to help give visuals to appropriate spacing for spectators. We will also ask that you fill out a card and place it in a basket with your Graduate’s Name as well as the email address(es) where you would like the digital photo files sent. Please park on the football practice field to leave room in the parking lot for family and friends.

*If any graduate does not wish to participate in the ceremony, you may schedule a time with Mrs. Goemaat to receive your diploma after the original graduation date of May 17. Or you may request that your diploma be mailed to you.


As stated above, there will not be a receiving line after the ceremony, however, we know that the community would love to be able to congratulate the class of 2020!
