Valley’s Graduation Ceremony
High School Families
We are working hard to plan Valley’s graduation ceremony for our senior class on June 6th. We have arranged an outdoor graduation under a large canopy. Federal and state restrictions on gatherings are changing all the time and we must follow those restrictions, but at this time we believe that each of our graduating seniors will be able to invite at least five people to the graduation ceremony. We will also try to livestream or record and post the graduation so people can watch from home. We hope to be able to open the ceremony to more people – maybe to everyone – but we won’t be able to commit to that until very close to graduation day. Please check our website and Facebook pages for updates when we get closer to graduation day and call the school if you have any questions.
