MHS graduation

Magnolia High School will have its 2020 graduation in Panther Arena.

Magnolia High School announced Wednesday that graduation exercises for the 2020 senior class will be held at 7 p.m. Thursday, July 9 in Panther Arena.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the ceremony will follow guidelines from Governor Asa Hutchinson, the Arkansas Department of Education, and the Arkansas Department of Health.

Guidelines require six-feet of social distancing in all areas in and around Panther Arena. The maximum occupancy of the arena will also be reduced.

Each senior will receive three tickets to be used by family, friends, or other guests. Tickets must be presented at the door prior to entry. Facemasks will also be required by everyone attending or participating in the graduation exercises. Family and guests will be required to bring their own facemask. The Magnolia School District will not provide facemasks to those attending the ceremony.

Hand sanitizing stations will be set up in the arena.

Arena doors will open at 6:15 p.m. and attendees are encouraged to remain in their cars until school officials direct them to enter.

For those unable to attend the 2020 graduation, Magnolia High School will provide live-streaming of the event on the Magnolia High School Facebook page.
