The Seminole County Middle/High School’s virtual graduation ceremony is set for Friday, May 22, at 7:30 p.m.

The virtual graduation presentation will begin promptly at 7:30 p.m. and will include, in the following order,  a welcome, Pledge of Allegiance, invocation, Salutatory address, Valedictory address, introduction of the speaker, speaker address, slideshow of the graduates, turning of Tassels and the presentation of the graduates.

On May 22nd, all Seniors who plan to participate in the Senior Appreciation Drive Through need to arrive at the school by 4:30 p.m. in caps, gowns, stoles, etc.  The Seniors will park in the faculty parking lot by the tennis courts.  Each Senior will be given a designated space, six feet apart, to stand in a line starting with Valedictorian, and followed by the  Salutatorian, Honor Graduates by rank and the remaining
Senior class members.  

From 5 to 6 p.m., the school is encouraging the entire Seminole County community to drive by the school, remaining in their cars, as a salute to the most deserving SCHS graduating class of 2020.  Seniors who would like to have their diploma at this time will be able to receive it and display it while family and community members drive by to congratulate them.  

Those wishing to drive through to honor the Seniors need to enter the school property from Sheffield Drive. Vehicles of friends and family members will not be allowed to stop for photos and no one will be allowed to exit a vehicle. 

At 6 p.m. Seniors will be allowed to leave and go to their homes and watch the virtual graduation.

School officials are pleased to announce a time and a plan has been developed to congregate for an in-person graduation ceremony at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, June 26. The event will be held at the school’s gymnasium and the doors will open at 6. p.m.  

For safety reasons, the in person ceremony on June 26 will include the following precautions. Honor graduates will not be able to sit on stage during the ceremony.  There is not enough room.  We have over 40 honor graduates in a class of under 100 graduates.  

People attending the ceremony will place their ticket in a box and not hand it to the person standing at the table.  

Attendees will sit staggered as a group in the stands to follow social distancing guidelines.  Family members will sit together in positioned seating in order to have appropriately safe distancing.   

Everyone attending the live graduation ceremony will need to disperse immediately following the graduation so that we do not congregate. 

Those who cannot attend the graduation can watch the graduation live on SCMHS Tribal News Facebook live.  

The practice date and time for
Seniors participating in the June 26 in person ceremony will be at 8:30 a.m. on Friday, June 26 at the school’s gymnasium.

On Friday, May 22nd at the drive-through appreciation event, each graduating Senior will receive six in person ceremony tickets for their family.
