RALEIGH COUNTY, WV (WOAY) – Students and parents have questions about events seniors typically look forward to.
Parents wonder what will happen with their child’s graduation ceremony and prom. Superintendent David Price says all high schools in the county have canceled prom, but graduation will go on as planned.
“The times may change and one of the high school’s dates may change from Saturday to Friday,” Price shared. “We’ll make an announcement on that as soon as details are nailed down, but we will be having a graduation where students will have the opportunity to walk across the stage [and] receive the diploma in a very safe way.”
Price says schools are also looking into broadcasting ceremonies by television or radio.
