Eighth-grade students will be having a live graduation ceremony.
"The district will hold live graduation ceremonies for Thomas Jefferson and Palm Avenue Middle Schools on Wednesday, May 26 at 7 p.m. at the Wasco High School football field," Superintendent of the Wasco Union Elementary School District Kelly Richers said. "Tickets will be limited similar to last year's ceremony. We are not sure if it will be broadcast."
Richers said the eighth graders will return to school in person on Monday, May 24 to turn in whatever needs to be turned in.
He added that additional information will be forthcoming regarding summer school and the opening of school for fall 2021.
Richers said attendance has been down to 95% in the last month.
"The district has done very well with 98% attendance during the pandemic," he said.
