A committee of 15 made up of administrators, board members, senior parents and county health officials have come up with a plan for 2020 high school graduation.
Graduation will be held on one of three weekends including June 20-21, July 11-12 and July 25-26, depending on how the state reopens past the COVID-19 shutdown.
Graduation will be held on the football field with attendance limited to two tickets per senior. Superintendent Kevin Crall said the ceremony will be as traditional as possible. He added that fireworks at the end of the ceremony might play into the mix this year.
The attendance will include seniors having two tickets each for family or friends to sit in the stadium bleachers. Those attending will be socially distanced.
If restrictions are still in place by the July 25 date, a virtual graduation will take place.
The Senior Awards ceremony will be held June 18 or June 19 either in a traditional way or in a virtual setting.
And prom will take place July 19 (traditional or virtual).
On the evening of Thursday, May 14 seniors will be taking over KIIC radio station with small groups on the radio for an hour at a time. Jason Summers and Dan Stocker will be hosting that event. The station will also have another Friday Night Lights on May 15.
The Albia Rotary Club has helped the school purchase faculty retirement signs and senior signs that are already out.
