SPS Announces New Dates for Graduation And Other Changes

Michele Skalicky

This year’s commencement ceremonies for Springfield Public Schools have been rescheduled for August 6 and 7 at JQH Arena.  The ceremonies in May were canceled due to the coronavirus.  The decision was made after the district surveyed seniors and their families.

Project Graduation will also still be held for each high school on commencement night.  Prom will be rescheduled for late July.

The district also announced that all students will have the chance to pick up any personal items left in their school buildings before the last day of school on May 21.  Schools will schedule the pick up times.

Summer school will be held, but session 1 of Explore to Go, which is set to begin June 3, will be online.  The district will provide meals for students in the summer.  Details will be announced later.
