Several area school districts are wrapping up the previous school year with graduation ceremonies. Two months after classes have officially been done, 2020 graduates at Chester, Oldham-Ramona, and Dell Rapids School Districts were honored in ceremonies this past weekend. Next weekend, Rutland High School is planning its graduation ceremony for Saturday, July 25th at 9:00 p.m. on the Rutland football field.
The graduation ceremony that had been planned for 2020 Madison High School graduates for next Sunday has been cancelled. Superintendent Joel Jorgenson said the ceremony has been cancelled because of the rise in COVID-19 cases in the county and the fact that the county has moved into substantial community spread.
