After careful consideration of the current situation some concerned parents of Wilmington High School are asking for support from our community to hold a social distancing graduation at the Wilmington High School Football field, or other suitable location (town common, Shriners) for the Class of 2020. We believe our children have already lost so much during this time and deserve to be celebrated in a somewhat traditional ceremony. The current plan is for students to drive up to receive their diploma at a designated time on June 7th. Then if social distancing guidelines are lifted a more traditional ceremony will be planned at a later date this summer. We find that the current plan doesn't honor and celebrate the Class of 2020 in the way that they deserve. We'd like to see a social distance graduation ceremony sometime in June.
We have 213 students in the graduating class and only ask for an acceptance of 2 guests per student.
By signing this petition you are agreeing that our children have earned the opportunity to have a proper ceremony to acknowledge their accomplishment.
