Malakoff High School
2020 Senior Graduation May 29, 2020
This academic year has been like no other. Through it all, you continued to work and complete your assignments despite the closure of our school due to COVID-19. There have been so many things that you have missed out on this spring, but one event that you shouldn’t have to cancel is your high school graduation.
I’m happy to announce that Malakoff High School Class of 2020 will hold its graduation ceremony in person on May 29, 2020, at Tiger Stadium. The ceremony will begin at 7:30 pm. In the event of inclement weather, the ceremony will be moved to the Living for the Brand Cowboy Church located on Loop 7 in Athens, Texas.
While the district is pleased to be able to offer an in-person graduation ceremony, state law dictates that we are required to follow specific procedures that ensure social distancing requirements to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Therefore, each graduate will only be allowed to bring up to 5 guests. While we understand that this isn’t a perfect situation for many of you, the district still has to follow the requirements of state law. There will be more instruction regarding the social distancing requirements and the procedures all attendees will need to follow in the coming days.
Again, while this year has been anything but ordinary, I hope that by having a graduation ceremony will provide closure and will be the best way that we can celebrate all of your incredible accomplishments. You deserve it.
