LOWNDES COUNTY, Ga. (WTXL) — Lowndes High School announces it will hold a traditional ceremony for the class of 2020 on June 13, 2020, at 8:30 a.m. at Martin Stadium, if directives from state officials and health authorities permit large group gatherings and relax social distancing guidelines.

If unable to gather for a traditional ceremony due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Lowndes High School will broadcast a virtual graduation ceremony at 10:00 a.m.

The virtual ceremony will follow the same format as that of the traditional ceremony.

As with all decisions being made during this challenging time, the school says it is working diligently to recognize the class of 2020 while also closely following the safety guidelines and regulations put forth.

As always, the safety and well-being of our students, families, faculty, and community remains our highest priority. We will announce on June 5th the format (virtual or traditional) of the Graduation ceremony to be held on June 13, 2020.
LaVerne Rome, the director of Public Relations for Lowndes County Schools
