Westside High School Graduation Ceremonies

We are excited to share we will host in-person graduations at Phelps Field/Westside High School on Saturday July 18! We will hold multiple in-person ceremonies to account for social distancing and other health advisories. We will bring in 60-80 graduates for each ceremony, determined by alphabetical order of last name, each lasting approximately 1 hour.

We also realize the importance for our entire Class of 2020, their teachers and families, to celebrate this event together. For that reason, we will also share our Virtual Graduation on Saturday, July 18 at 7:00pm on Cox Channel 1013, after all in-person ceremonies are complete. This production will include all graduates, speeches, and music that would have been part of a traditional graduation in its entirety. This production will also be available to view online.
