GCS announces plans for Class of 2020 Commencement Exercises.
The GHS Graduating Class of 2020 will be celebrating its commencement ceremony on Saturday, August 1 at 9:00 AM. The ceremony will take place on the field of Burley Stadium with social distancing measures and mask requirements in place for the graduates and their guests. This event will be livestreamed on the GCS Video Channel.
In the event of inclement weather, there will be a ceremony for individual graduates and their guests in the Niswonger Performing Arts Center (NPAC). This event will take place throughout the day beginning at 9:00 AM. The NPAC ceremony will be videotaped and posted to the GCS Video Channel.
Each graduate will be allowed four guests to attend either ceremony.
A decision on the weather and which plan will be implemented will be made on Friday, July 31st by noon to give ample opportunity to review meteorological projections.
Graduates (or a representative) will need to come by GHS on Monday, July 27 2020 from 9-12:00 to pick up their graduation materials including cords, stoles, medals, gifts, and instructions on the specifics of both possible ceremonies. The pickup location will be at the rear of the school by the Attendance Office.
Sadly, the senior banquet which was postponed and rescheduled for July 30th has been cancelled due to the gathering restrictions in place at this time.We thank you for your patience as we have tried to put the Graduation Ceremony off to a time that would allow us to properly celebrate our graduates and look forward to accomplishing this on August 1
