LURAY, May 21 — The weather forecast seems favorable for Saturday…partly cloudy with a high of 86 degrees. That means plans for outdoor graduation ceremonies will move forward tomorrow at both Luray High School (10 a.m.) and Page County High School (3 p.m.)
Page County Public Schools waited until they were reasonably confident of the weather forecast before making the final decision on whether graduation ceremonies would be held outdoors, or in each school’s gymnasium.
With Governor Ralph Northam loosening public health restrictions on outdoor gatherings on May 15, the two graduation venues were allowed to have up to 50-percent capacity, with seating “pods” placed six feet apart. Graduating seniors were given 15 tickets to hand out to friends and family. The number of dignitaries and speakers are being limited, according to school officials, to ensure that students receive the most tickets possible for guests.
The LHS ceremony, with 126 graduates, will be held adjacent to the school building and parking lot area. (See map with outlined areas at each school here.) The ceremony will be streamed LIVE by C King Media for those who are unable to attend.
