MCDONLALD COUNTY, Mo. — One local school district is determined to give the class of 2020 a chance to celebrate, even if it’s a little later than planned.
The McDonald County School District is setting new dates for big events postponed by covid-19 restrictions.
They plan to hold prom toward the end of June, with a new graduation date set for July 10th.
School leaders say feedback on social media highlighted how important it is to reschedule.
Mark Stanton, Mcdonald County R-1 Superintendent, said, “Our thought is is that our students deserve graduation, they’ve earned graduation and we want them to participate in a traditional graduation here in McDonald County.”
The Superintendent emphasizes any future school gatherings will rely on the guidance of health authorities.
