Class of 2020, you will definitely be one for the ages and one that will be discussed in future history lessons. We are excited to be able to make this graduation ceremony be a great experience for you. Due to COVID-19 we are taking the necessary precautions and have some guidelines we will need to follow. 

  1. Location: Graduation will take place at Guy H. Buchanan Stadium on June 12, 2020 at 7:00 PM. We will not have prior practice, so it is important for graduates to report to the Gym dressed by 6:30. If you are having a picture made by Mac Brown Photography you should be there by 6:00. Families please do not arrive on campus before 6:30.

  2. Social Distancing: We will strictly abide by social distancing requirements of six-foot distancing between one another. Graduates as well as families will be seated with six feet of distance between them. Each graduate will be allowed six tickets to give to family members. Due to these guidelines all pictures, socializing, etc. must be done off the school campus before or after graduation. Please do not plan on coming on campus if you are not one of the six people that is given a ticket.

  3. Seating: Families of students with the last name A-J and students in the Top Ten should seat in the sections taped off in the home bleachers. Families of students with the last name of K-Z should seat in the sections taped off in the visitor bleachers. This will give you the best view of your graduate as they exit the stadium with their diploma.

  4. Pictures: There will be two pictures available for purchase of your graduate. The first picture will be one made in the gym lobby prior to graduation with a backdrop. This picture must be prepaid only through a link at or WCHS Nation Facebook page.

  6. Dress Code: Graduation is a formal affair, so you are encouraged to dress your best. The guidelines for dress will include at least a shirt with a collar and dress pants or nice jeans for guys. Girls are encouraged to wear a nice dress or dress pants. Wear shoes that are comfortable for walking a longer distance than our normal graduation.
