(Waynesville)–Waynesville High School announces that it will issue three tickets to each member of the Class of 2020 for guests to attend the graduation ceremony at 7:30 p.m. Friday, June 19, 2020, in Tiger Stadium, instead of two as previously announced.
A portion of the seating area is being reconfigured to accommodate additional folding chairs, making the additional ticket possible.
“We are trying to do everything we can to make this the best possible graduation ceremony while complying with COVID-19 guidelines,” said WHS Principal Randy Luebbert.
Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Brian Henry, says he is happy that the senior class is going to have its graduation night.
All attendees, including guests and graduates, will be expected to wear masks and to observe social distancing. Masks will be provided for the graduates. Social distancing guidelines will be strictly enforced for graduates and guests; anyone attending the graduation ceremony will be expected to comply with the guidelines at all times before, during and after the ceremony.
Graduates will go to their assigned classrooms inside WHS prior to the ceremony and will march into the stadium maintaining social distance between them.
No one will be admitted into the parking lot or stadium without a ticket. Upon arrival to the stadium, guests are to remain in their vehicles until instructed to make their way into the stadium. Dots will be placed on the bleachers to indicate where guests may sit so that social distancing may be observed before, during and after the ceremony.
