Graduation Announcement- Updated 07/13/2020

The extension of Phases II and III of Governor Cooper’s plan to reopen North Carolina has caused Wilkes County Schools to have to revisit what they had planned for graduation ceremonies for the class of 2020, according to Superintendent Mark Byrd. Byrd announced last week that tentative dates of July 17 and 18 were not feasible due to the extension of Phase II until July 17. With no guarantee that Phase II will end on the 17th, and still a lack of certainty of what Phase III will allow, Byrd shared that Wilkes County Schools has decided to move forward to find ways of honoring the members of the Class of 2020. Wilkes County Schools will hold a structured and controlled in-person graduation ceremony at each of its five high schools on July 23, 24, 27 and 28.
