05.18.20 Superintendent Update


Once again, congratulations to the graduating seniors in the class of 2020!

As I referenced Friday, we will continue our tradition of in-person graduation ceremonies but we will have a few changes due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

First - graduation will be held on Monday, June 1 and Tuesday, June 2 with all ceremonies starting at 7 p.m.. The ceremonies will be held at their traditional stadium locations.

Here is our schedule for graduations on June 1 and June 2:

June 1, 2020

Baldwin County High School- Mitchell Field

Daphne High School- Trojan Field at Jubilee Stadium

Foley High School- Ivan Jones Stadium

June 2, 2020

Robertsdale High School- J.D. Sellars Stadium

Spanish Fort High School- “The Hill” Spanish Fort High Stadium

Fairhope High School- W.C. Majors Field

For students graduating from the Baldwin County Virtual School, your principal, Mrs. Resmondo, will provide further details on the BCVS ceremony to be held that same week.

Due to the regulations set by Governor Ivey, and to comply with social distancing, each senior will be allowed four guest tickets just as we have provided for rain events in the past. Please note, no one will be allowed into graduation without a ticket.

Seating in the stadium will be arranged in a socially-distanced configuration. While family groups may sit together, we ask that you leave a space between families. The seniors will be spaced according to social distancing guidelines as well. 

Parents, I ask that you help me keep us in compliance. Please respect the few conditions we have put in place, as well as the other families attending the ceremonies. Everyone has a different expectation but I ask we all work together to make this a great, safe, celebration.

Additional details will be provided by your school’s principal including rain scenarios, attire as well as when and where to arrive. Look for that information from your principals before Wednesday. 

We look forward to celebrating these accomplished young men and women. This is a class that will forever be remembered in all they have been through this year. I am so proud of them and believe this challenge will better prepare them for the rest of their lives. 

Again, thank you for patience as we navigate through these unprecedented times. We hope this helps bring some sense of joy and celebration for your family and for your senior!
