This week, principals from Wilson County Schools high schools created a plan for traditional graduation ceremonies in light of the coronavirus pandemic.

According to an email from WCS spokesman Bart Barker, restrictions and modifications have been put in place that comply with current state health guidelines. This updated plan significantly reduces student and family volume. Director of Schools Donna Wright approved the plan.

Below are the finalized Class of 2020 graduation ceremonies dates and times:

Lebanon High School

LHS will conduct two ceremonies on Tuesday, June 16 on their football field.

Students with last names that start with letters A-K will graduate at 4 p.m.

Students with last names that start with letters L-Z will graduate at 8 p.m.

Each graduate is getting four tickets and one parking pass.

Mt. Juliet High School

MJHS will conduct two ceremonies on Thursday, June 18 on the their football field.

Students with last names that start with letters A-M will graduate at 10 a.m.

Social distancing guidelines will be in place during these ceremonies for students and guests.

In the event of inclement weather, ceremonies would be moved to school gyms. If that happens, guest tickets per graduate would be reduced from four to two.

Principals from each high school have been, and will continue to be, in contact with seniors and their families for any additional instructions and guidelines, Barker wrote.
