St. Lucie Public Schools will celebrate the Class of 2020 with virtual graduations in May, but is committed to holding live graduations at an outdoor site in late June if it is safe to do so based on guidance from the Florida Department of Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
During the broadcast of the ceremonies, members of the Class of 2020 are invited to gather online with their family and friends as their school recognizes them and confers their high school diplomas. The prerecorded, streamed ceremonies will feature valedictorian and salutatorian speeches, digital slides honoring each graduate as their name is called and the traditional “turn your tassel” moment that each graduate can participate in safely at home in their cap and gown.
“Although we are disappointed that we will not be able to hold our traditional graduations in May, we are committed to commemorating this very special occasion in a unique and memorable way,” said Superintendent Gent. “I want our graduates and their families to know that we are thrilled to recognize and celebrate the accomplishments of the Class of 2020.”
