Live graduation ceremony now planned for PHS seniors on May 30

The Perryton High School Class of 2020 will have a live graduation after all this year.

The most recent guidelines from the State of Texas and the Texas education Agency now allow a live, in-person graduation ceremony. PHS’s ceremony is set for Saturday, May 30, at 11 a.m. at Ranger Field.

Attendance will be limited to immediate family. Social distancing and other safety precautions will be practiced by everyone involved. The ceremony will be presented live on PISD’s Facebook page. The TEA guidelines only allow one class gathering, so there will be no graduation rehearsal.

Detailed guidelines about screening and social distancing will be posted on the Perryton ISD website in the next few days.
