Fayette Class of 2020 to get real graduation Dec. 18


Due to decreasing cases of COVID-19 in our community, all high school graduations that were postponed in August have been rescheduled for Friday, December 18 at 6 p.m. with December 19 as a weather back-up day if needed.

Commencements are scheduled to take place at each school’s stadium at 6 p.m. on December 18. If ceremonies are delayed due to inclement weather, they will be held on December 19 beginning at 2 p.m.

These dates are for commencement only; no senior activities will take place.

Information about the details for commencement will be sent soon from each high school to graduates and their parents.

Graduation is a monumental milestone for high school seniors and their families. Fayette County Public Schools realizes the importance of celebrating this great achievement.

“Although we were not able to hold in-person graduations earlier due to high levels of COVID-19 cases in our community, we remained committed to providing our 2020 graduates with the opportunity to walk across the stage to receive their diplomas as soon as it was safe to do so. We look forward to finally honoring them with a meaningful celebration to commemorate their great accomplishment,” said Fayette Schools spokesperson Melinda Berry-Driesbach.

“Again, congratulations and best wishes to our 2020 high school graduating class,” she said.
