 Ram TV Graduation Update

Dear Seniors and Families,

Early this afternoon, all School Districts in the State of Washington received official guidance from the Washington State Department of Health (DOH) regarding graduation ceremonies. The DOH has strongly advised that no school district schedule outside of home ceremonies until counties are officially in Phase 2 of reopening. As we know, Pierce County is currently in Phase 1, with a possibility of moving to Phase 2 in June. Given this recent news, we are going to have push out our receipt of diploma ceremonies for all high schools. The new dates are as follows:

  • Emerald Ridge: June 3-4
  • Puyallup Digital Learning: June 5
  • Rogers: June 8-9
  • Puyallup: June 10-11
  • Walker: June 12

Given the new dates listed above, the complete graduation ceremonies for all high schools will now go live on our District's YouTube Channel the week of June 15, 2020. More information about the exact launch day/time will be communicated at a later date. 

We were looking forward to kicking off our graduation ceremonies and are disappointed to have to share this change of plans with all of you. We hope that this recent news of graduation does not add more angst to an already disappointing end of school year for our seniors and their loved ones. If Pierce County is not officially in Phase 2 by our new June receipt of diploma ceremony dates, then additional communication will be shared about next steps. 

Once again, thank you for showing grace, resilience, and flexibility during this unpredictable and unprecedented period of time. 

More information from the DOH can be found by clicking on the following link: DOH Graduation Guidance.

Take care and stay safe,

Dr. Pecchi
