Muskogee High School 2020 Graduation Set for June 19 at Indian Bowl
MUSKOGEE, Okla. - Muskogee Public Schools will hold its graduation ceremony on Friday, June 19, 2020, at 7:30 p.m. inside Indian Bowl the district announced Thursday.
The ceremony is contingent on all COVID-19 restrictions being lifted by the state and the City of Muskogee.
The move to Indian Bowl, with a capacity just over 6,000, will allow each of the nearly 350 graduates to have six ticketed guests for the commencement ceremony while practicing social distancing. Additionally, the space along the playing surface of the Indian Bowl field will provide appropriate space for graduates to social distance.
“It has been our intention since the closure of school buildings and the move to E-Learning for our district to find a way to appropriately celebrate our Class of 2020,” Dr. Jarod Mendenhall, Superintendent of Muskogee Public Schools stated. “We feel that the Indian Bowl will provide the right balance of guests, social distancing space, and the opportunity to honor our graduates at the same time.”
Seating will be marked off to distinguish appropriate social distancing for the safety of all in attendance.
Guests and students are reminded that Alice Robertson will be an active construction site and parking will be limited. The safety and security of our students, staff, and guests is of the utmost importance.
