HAWKINSVILLE, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – Hawkinsville High School’s Class of 2020 will graduate on Thursday, June 4.
That’s according to a letter from Pulaski County Schools Superintendent Dr. Al Pollard, which was posted on the district’s Facebook page Sunday.
The ceremony will be held at Bobby Gentry Stadium at 7:30 p.m.
“We have chosen to have it on Thursday so that we can use Friday and Saturday as alternative dates for the ceremony if weather conditions effectively force a postponement,” Pollard wrote.
“Ordinarily, the gym is utilized as the backup; in this case, we do not have an indoor facility that can safely host the guests who will be in attendance.”
Pollard said guests will be limited to 8 per graduate and no one will be admitted without an invitation.
“We do apologize for the limitations, but we must endeavor to provide our students and their chosen guests a safe environment in this very important event.”
The event will be streamed live, with streaming details to be provided “as soon as they are available.”
