To give students the best chance to participate in graduation, Clinton High School has announced they will hold graduation on June 28 at the Clinton High School football field.
Principal Jerry Wayne says the date is certainly tentative as the coronavirus social distancing guidelines continue to evolve but he felt setting the date where they did would give them the best chance to be able to hold graduation for their students and their families.
Balancing social distancing guidelines and also maintaining normalcy was on the mind of Wayne when deciding how to coordinate a graduation ceremony. He indicates the best chance to hold a ceremony and maintain social distancing was to hold the proceedings at the football field.
Wayne hopes to have students walk across the stage, head towards the track for pictures, and then find their seats. There is the possibility the ceremony could be pushed to July depending on the developments of the coronavirus during the month of June.
WHOW will be broadcasting the graduation ceremony live via THE BIG 1520/92.3 FM & 106.5 FM, as well as being streamed by clicking the WHOW LIVE icon at Dewitt Daily News, on the WHOW mobile app, and on Amazon Alexa.
Again the ceremony is set for Sunday, June 28 at 7:30 pm with a rain date of Monday, June 29.
