Randolph-Henry High School will hold Diploma Awarding Ceremonies for graduating seniors to receive their diplomas May 19, 20, and 21 in the Randolph-Henry Auditorium.

These ceremonies are not intended to be a replacement for graduation.

According to Charlotte County Public School (CCPS) Superintendent Robbie Mason the Class of 2020 will hold a graduation ceremony when conditions improve and restrictions are lifted for large gatherings.

In order to adhere to social distancing guidelines, seniors may pick-up their diplomas on the following schedule:

May 19—2 p.m. to 7 p.m. seniors with last names beginning with A—H

May 20—2 p.m. to 7 p.m. seniors with last names beginning with I—R

May 21—2 p.m. to 7 p.m. seniors with last names beginning with S—Z

When students arrive, they may line-up in the area outside of the auditorium porch. There will be signs to mark appropriate social distancing locations. To avoid a large group, please do not line-up until the line moves forward and a spot opens up.

There will be a location on the auditorium porch for families to take pictures before entering the auditorium for the student to receive his/her diploma.

According to CCPS staff, no more than six people will be allowed in the auditorium.

This is not a formal ceremony, so students are not required to wear formal dress as they would for graduation.

Once inside the auditorium, the student only will go on stage to receive his/her diploma. At this time, parents/guardians may take pictures.

The group will then exit through the side door to the parking lot.
