Arlington Public Schools is looking forward to providing memorable celebrations for the Class of 2020 (download the invitation). Despite current restrictions for gathering in person, our seniors are deserving of a graduation that honors their accomplishments, and APS is committed to providing meaningful virtual graduation ceremonies for all our seniors. In-person celebrations may occur later in the summer depending on the Governor’s timetable, social distancing and availability of students. Ceremonies will be produced prior to graduation and will be aired according to the schedule provided.

In early June, APS will begin featuring Class of 2020 graduates from each high school/program, and schools and families are encouraged to share memories, images and messages honoring seniors using the following hashtags:   #APS2020grads     #Classof2020
