JOHNSON COUNTY SCHOOLS ANNOUNCE GRADUATION PLANS FOR THE CLASS OF 2020

JCHS Class of 2020

On Monday April 27th, Director of Schools, Dr. Mischelle Simcox met with leaders from the graduating class to receive their input on several different options to conduct this year's graduation ceremony. Dr. Simcox later announced plans for the class of 2020 graduation ceremony.

Class of 2020 and Longhorn families, We are very proud of your accomplishments; we are pleased to announce further details for this year's graduation ceremony. As a result of government guidelines and public health concerns, our process will be to host a "drive-in" graduation at Chamber Park. Each student will be allowed to bring two cars of guests to the event. This will enable us to respect social distancing guidelines while still being able to hold a graduation for our seniors.

Graduation will be held on the morning of Saturday, May 23th, with a rain date of May 30th. A decision of whether or not to move graduation to the rain date will be made no later than 4:00 p.m. Thursday, May 21st.

Cars will be spread out across Chamber Park with a good view of the stage and will be able to receive audio through their vehicle via an FM radio. For those unable to attend and for our seniors, we will be recording as well as providing a photographer to capture this special moment. Student and their families will be able to access the recording and their photos at no charge to them once all the media has been processed.

Additional information will continue released; however, we must remain flexible as we plan this event due to weather and additional guidelines by the state government. We will let you know as changes occur. We would also like to thank everyone who was worked extremely hard to provide our seniors with this special event.

We know that this a very special event for our seniors and families that have worked so hard over the past twelve years. We have and will continue to work diligently to provide our senior class with the best possible options.
