Fayette County Schools prepares for in-person graduations happening Saturday

FAYETTE COUNTY, WV (WOAY) – In-person graduations will be taking place this Saturday for all three Fayette County high schools.

Meadow Bridge’s graduation will begin at 10 a.m., and then Midland Trail will start at 1:30 p.m. with Oak Hill’s beginning at 6:00 p.m.

Associate Superintendent of Curriculum, Technology and Instruction Anna Kincaid-Cline says they will all take place at each school’s football stadium with limited capacity and social distancing requirements.

“We’re going to have students sitting six feet apart, so we’ll socially distance with students,” Kincaid-Cline said. “And then we’ll ask the parents, you know obvious mom and dad can sit together, and then we’ll want to space them apart as well, so we are limiting some of the number of people that can come in to the stadium, but we are providing a way for those that are not coming into the stadium to view it on the jumbotron that we have available.” 

Jumbotrons will be in each of the high school’s parking lots for people to watch from the parking lot.
