  • Per WCPSS:

    Current pandemic guidance prevents planning for 2021 graduation ceremonies at the typical large venues like Raleigh Convention Center. Instead, each school will host graduation ceremonies on their campus this spring.  

    Graduation ceremonies will be held in the school stadium at most schools. They will be able to accommodate a maximum 30 percent venue capacity for guests. High schools are establishing dates, times, logistics and instructions that will be shared with seniors and their families in April.

    In addition, high schools will not be able to host traditional proms this spring. Instead, each high school will host an event to safely celebrate graduating seniors and help to create memories that are an important part of the high school experience. Schools will be sending details regarding these events in the coming weeks.
