Vigo County high schools move up graduation times in anticipation of high temps

Local News

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. — In anticipation of high temperatures next weekend, ceremonies at the three traditional Vigo County high schools have been moved to times earlier in the day.

Ceremonies will still be held on each school’s football field. Times will now be:

  • West Vigo High School: 9 a.m.
  • North Vigo High School: 11 a.m.
  • South Vigo High School: 1 p.m.

Individual schools are contacting students through automated phone calls. If students have questions, they should contact their principal.

All students are asked to limit their guests to their parents and guardians, so that social distancing can be observed in the stands.

Visitors should wear masks upon entry, since social distancing may not be possible at the gate.

A livestream of each graduation will be available on the corporation’s YouTube channel.

Students received their diplomas last month in an individual diploma presentation ceremony at each school.

Graduation ceremonies for alternative schools and adult education are unchanged at this time. All will take place on the South Vigo High School football field Friday, July 17. Times will be:

  • Vigo Virtual Success Academy: 5 p.m.
  • Booker T. Washington High School: 6 p.m.
  • McLean High School: 7 p.m.
  • Adult Education: 8 p.m.
