USD 305 Seniors Say Goodbye

Todd PittengerMay 15, 2020

Thursday was the last day of class for Salina USD 305 seniors.

Though no in-person graduation ceremony ceremonies can be held, the district says after large group gatherings are once again permitted they will arrange a time for the Class of 2020 to walk the stage in their cap and gown. A photographer will be hired to take graduation photos of each senior. At a later date, graduates of the Class of 2020 will be contacted with details.

May 21st is the last day for the remainder of USD students.

Here is some helpful information for parents and students:
