June Graduation and Dance Cancelled

May 27, 2020

Dear WSHS Seniors and Families,

I regret to inform all of our WSHS Senior Bears-Class of 2020,  that SCPS has decided to cancel our plans for a June graduation ceremony. Due to social distancing guidelines and for the safety of all our graduates and guests, it is just not the right time for a June in-person graduation.  Let's all continue to keep our heads high and hope for July!  

SCPS has released the following statement:

Due to the current and continuing social distancing guidelines, we will not be able to hold the planned June 11 High School Dances or  June 12 (June 13 for Crooms) stadium graduations for the class of 2020.

We are, however, still releasing our virtual graduation on or about July 1 and moving forward with our stadium graduation backup date of July 17 (July 18 for Crooms) with High School Dances on July 16th.

Graduation Plan #2 *(provided social distancing rules have not been lifted by June)

July 16th - Senior Dance at each High School.  Dance would be FREE for all Seniors.  High Schools will issue refunds for Prom.

July 17th – High School Graduations will be held at each High School on the Football Field at 8:20 p.m., which is military time for 20:20.  Crooms Academy would utilize Seminole High School’s Auditorium and hold theirs on July 18th @ 2:00 p.m.

July 18th – Rain Plan:  If it rains the evening of July 17th, Graduations would occur the next morning on July 18th @ 8:20 a.m.

Graduations would be live-streamed for spectators unable to attend in-person.

VIRTUAL GRADUATION: Also, we are still planning on a virtual graduation that will be released after July 1, so please be on the lookout for that. Information will be requested soon from the Class of 2020 to respond.  Mrs. Wilkerson is our contact for the virtual graduation, so please let her know if you have any questions.

Thank you!

Mr. Gaffney, Principal, WSHS
