Monday, July 13, 2020

McCOOK, Neb. -- McCook High School's 2020 graduation ceremonies are set for July 31.

The administration has issued the following statement:

Graduation Ceremonies

As we continue to navigate guidelines, questions regarding graduation are frequently

discussed. McCook Public Schools understand the importance of graduation in the

lives of our seniors and want to ensure that district conversations we are having about

our ability to continue them as planned are not being taken lightly.

At this time, plans for the McCook High School Class of 2020 Graduation Ceremonies

are as follows:

● McCook High School Graduation - Friday, July 31, 2020 at 6:00 p.m. held at

The Graff Event Center on the Campus of McCook Community College.

Per the current Directive Health Measure from the Nebraska Department of Health and

Human Services, indoor gatherings will be limited to 50% capacity. Therefore, each

graduate will receive 8-tickets for family members to attend graduation. The number

of tickets provided is based on the event capacity permitted under the Governorís

Directed Health Measure (DHM) III. If Directive Health Measure from the Southwest

Nebraska Public Health Department and the Office of the Governor of the State of

Nebraska dictate a change, the Graduates and the Public will be notified.

All guidelines concerning the graduation ceremony, tickets and materials will be

distributed to the graduates during graduation practice on July 29th, 2020 @ 12:00 pm

(Noon) at McCook Community College, Graff Event Center, 401 East M Street, McCook


Please know, we understand and value the importance of this milestone for students

and their families, and we will continue to do all that we can to make it a reality while

prioritizing the health and safety of all involved.
