MEDINA – The school district will have three graduation ceremonies on June 26, with attendance capped at 150, in order to meet the new guidelines from the state.

Medina High School Principal Michael Cavanagh announced today there will be three commencement services for the Class of 2020 at Vets Park, with the services at 4 p.m., 5:30 p.m., and 7 p.m.

Medina has about 110 graduates in the class. They will be grouped alphabetically according to last name.

“We are very pleased that we will be able to keep many of our time-honored traditions such as the Daisy Chain but we are still solidifying many of the details,” Cavanagh said in a notice to the community.

The district will have a rehearsal on June 25 for each of the three ceremonies. Medina will distribute all end-of-year items at the rehearsals, such as graduation attire, scholarships, Top Ten medals and cords.

“Looking forward to a fantastic ending for a truly unprecedented school year,” Cavanagh said.
