Superintendent of Schools Brian Alexander sent the following statement to the Edmonson Voice earlier today:
"Earlier this year, the class of 2020 was surveyed concerning their wishes in terms of their graduation ceremony. The overwhelming response of the graduating class was to have an in-person ceremony in keeping with our traditional graduation ceremonies of the past. As a school district we worked with the senior class to develop an alternative target date for graduation, with back-up dates should the need arise in order to accommodate the wishes of the Class of 2020.
It is with deep regret that Edmonson County Schools will not be able to have an in-person graduation on Sept 26th, due to current guidelines imposed in Kentucky. Edmonson County Schools will look forward to our alternative dates of October 24th, with an additional alternative date of December 19th, if necessary.
Our school district has made a tremendous effort to honor the Class of 2020 during the time period usually reserved for graduation in May. It is our continued goal to offer the in-person graduation our seniors asked for on October 24."
