Cedar Grove-Belgium High School has selected three dates for some kind of in-person graduation ceremony.

Sunday, June 7, was the original date, but that seems unlikely since Gov. Tony Evers has closed schools and will not allow students on campus through June 30 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Two other Sundays — July 12 and Aug. 2 — are backup dates.

Details of what the ceremony may look like and who would be allowed to attend haven’t been determined.

“Our goal would be to have the graduate and at least the parents,” Principal Josh Ketterhagen recently told the School Board.

In a report to the board, Ketterhagen said the school will operate under state orders “but provide as much opportunity for our seniors and their families as possible.”

If the Aug. 2 date isn’t allowed, a virtual ceremony will be held and possibly be live streamed.
