GHS Class of 2020 to hold outdoor graduation


first_imgGreensburg, IN —Greensburg Community Schools administrators have updated the Graduation ceremony for the Class of 2020. After two rescheduled dates, the ceremony was pushed back to this Saturday, July 18 at 9 am. After Wednesday’s announcement from Governor Eric Holcomb, the school made the decision to close the ceremony to the students only, and show it virtually through several different avenues for family, staff, and others to watch. The Class of 2020 has 167 students, which makes it impossible to allow each to have even one guest and be under 250 people.Several parents and family members called in complaints about not being able to watch the event in-person and made suggestions that instead of hosting the event indoors, as it is historically in the gymnasium, but to host it at the GCHS Football Complex. The GCSC administration has been working with the local health department to coordinate the event outdoors. The graduating students are encouraged to wear a mask that is provided by the school and those in attendance are also encouraged to wear a mask. Also as seating is limited in the bleachers, it is suggested to bring a chair.last_img read more
