USD 259 Cancels Indoor Graduation Ceremonies


Wichita Public Schools announced it has cancelled the indoor commencement ceremonies scheduled from July 24 through 26.

"Though we know this will come as a disappointment to our graduating seniors, we believe it to be the best decision for the safety and health of our students, families and staff."

The district says instead each high school will hold a safe and appropriate celebration on their respective campuses on the same weekend the indoor ceremonies were scheduled.

Students should expect to hear from their school and principal soon with more information.
