We have some changes to our graduation plans and would like to share those with seniors and parents. The Charleston Convention and Civic Center will not be available for our June 29th graduation, so are moving graduation to Redskin Stadium. Graduation will still take place on June 29 at 7:00. 

Graduation practice will be on Saturday, June 27 at 1:00 on the football field. Seniors will socially distance upon entering the field, while on the field, and when exiting the field. The wearing of masks is highly encouraged. During practice, each senior will receive an envelope with four tickets, these tickets will be used by guests to enter the graduation ceremony on June 29. To comply with health department guidelines, we are limited to four tickets per senior. 

On the day of graduation, seniors will need to arrive by 5:30. Social distancing will be observed at all times. We will discuss the procession and other important items at the graduation practice, so please make every effort to attend. 

The gates for guest seating will also open at 5:30. We will have police, teachers and National Guard members assisting with ticket taking, entering the stadium and seating. Both the home and visitor bleachers will be used. Seats will be divided to ensure that each section has an empty section on both sides, in front and behind. Visitors in wheelchairs will have access to the track to view graduation. Teacher seating will be on the field. The back-parking lot will be reserved for handicapped parking only. The wearing of masks is highly encouraged.

At the conclusion of the ceremony, we ask that graduates and families exit the facilities in a timely and orderly manner, while observing social distancing. 

We thank you for your patience and hope to see seniors on Saturday, June 27 at 1:00 for practice, and guests on June 29 at 7:00 for graduation.
