Sussex Tech graduates Class of 2020 (copy)

Members of the Sussex Technical High School Class of 2020 celebrate their graduation with the traditional tossing of their caps in the air. Graduation-week events for the Class of 2021 will again include some changes under COVID-19 safety protocols, but things should better resemble the norm.

Officials with Sussex Technical High School this week announced plans for graduation week for the school’s Class of 2021:

  • June 1, 6 p.m. — Senior Awards & Athletics Ceremony, high school gymnasium. Seniors who will be receiving recognition will be contacted by Student Services. Students will be permitted two guests. The event will be livestreamed. (This event is pending Division of Public Health approval.)
  • June 2, 9 a.m. — Graduation Practice and Senior Picnic, outdoors. For seniors only. The picnic will begin immediately after graduation practice and end at 1:30 p.m. (This event is pending Division of Public Health approval.)
  • June 3, 6 p.m. — Graduation Ceremony, Raven Stadium. Each graduate will receive two guest tickets. The event will be livestreamed. Seniors should arrive by 5 p.m. More details will be forthcoming.

“We know you’re looking forward to graduation and beyond,” outgoing principal John Demby told seniors. “Congratulations, Ravens — you’re almost there!”
