Traditional graduation ceremonies planning to be held for Ascension Parish Schools

Local News

According to Jackie Tisdell with Ascension Parish School System, traditional graduation ceremonies will be held at each school stadium next week. 

7 p.m., Wednesday, May 27, 2020:
ST. AMANT HIGH SCHOOL COMMENCEMENT AT THE PIT

7 p.m., Thursday, May 28, 2020:
EAST ASCENSION HIGH SCHOOL COMMENCEMENT AT SPARTAN STADIUM

7 p.m., Friday, May 29, 2020:
DONALDSONVILLE HIGH SCHOOL COMMENCEMENT AT BOUTTE STADIUM

7 p.m., Friday, May 29, 2020:
DUTCHTOWN HIGH SCHOOL COMMENCEMENT AT GRIFFIN FIELD


In order for these ceremonies to adhere to safety guidelines, graduates will be seated six feet apart on the field; stadium capacity will remain at 25%, which means attendee tickets will be limited and strictly enforced; and members of vulnerable populations will be encouraged not to attend

EATEL will live stream all four graduations on YouTube so that those who cannot or choose not to attend may still observe the ceremonies. It is important to note that attendance at these ceremonies for graduates is optional. Please also note, if restrictions and guidelines in response to COVID-19 were to prohibit us from holding graduation ceremonies on our campuses, we are looking at other large indoor venues to accommodate these events later in the summer.
