Saline Area Schools have identified two plans for the class of 2020 commencement ceremony.

According to an email sent by Saline Area Schools to parents, the first option is to host a traditional graduation ceremony on July 11, but if that can't happen safely, the district has set June 20 as a date for mini-ceremonies and a processional of vehicles at Hornet Stadium.

"The administrative decision in regards to hosting a traditional ceremony will depend on the stay-at-home order and larger group gathering guidelines at that time.  If we determine that it will not be a safe environment, SAS will move to Plan B," the email states.

The rain date for the traditional ceremony is July 12.

A decision on whether or not a traditional ceremony can be held will be communicated to parents by June 1.

The second plan includes mini-ceremonies assigned by school counselors and a processional of cars at a designated location ending at Hornet Stadium. The rain date is June 21.

According to the email, both options will have virtual components, including speeches and music. Both plans also include diploma distribution.
