Information on High School Graduations in Lauderdale County - 2021

Seniors at Ripley and Halls High Schools will graduate this week.  Ripley's graduation will occur at  7pm on Thursday, May 13th, at Ripley High School and graduation in Halls will be at 7pm on Friday, May 14th.  Each graduate will receive a pre-determined number of tickets for family and friends.  Only those who have a ticket will be allowed to enter the ceremony.  We ask that each guest remain in the stands at all times and we encourage the wearing of a mask when social distancing is not possible.

There's no greater recognition of a graduate's achievements than the high school graduation ceremony. Each student deserves the privilege of a public celebration that recognizes the significance of their achievement and encourages them to continue the pursuit of learning throughout their lives.  We appreciate our graduates and their guests for taking this ceremony seriously by respecting each senior's moment as he or she receives a diploma.  Guests are asked to arrive on time and not distract from the event by arriving after the ceremony has started. 

While recognizing the importance of the graduation ceremonies, students and guests are requested to be respectful of the formality of the occasion and refrain from celebrations that are disruptive.  In order to ensure that all graduates' names are clearly heard by the audience, it is requested that excessive applause and other loud forms of student recognition, such as air horns, etc., be withheld until after all graduates have received their diplomas.

To accommodate those who may be unable to attend the ceremony, a live stream will be provide again this year.  Below are the links for each event.  These events will be streamed live and will be saved to the district's YouTube channel for future viewing.

Thanks for making these events special for our students!
