Commencement Contingency Plans


Waynoka High School has developed the following plan for the Commencement ceremony and celebration of our Senior Class of 2020. First and foremost, it is the desire of Waynoka High School to have a traditional in-person Commencement. We do not feel it is reasonable to hold such a ceremony on May 15 as originally planned even if our governmental officials allow public gatherings before that date. Therefore, we are unfolding a three phase plan to hold a traditional Commencement. That plan is as follows:

A traditional Commencement is scheduled for Friday, June 26, 2020 at 7:00pm, to be held in the Multipurpose Building. If by June 15, 2020 it becomes obvious that public gatherings of that magnitude are still not allowed, we will postpone Commencement. If postponed, a Traditional Commencement will then be hosted on July 24, 2020 at 7:00pm. On that date, if we are unable to hold such a ceremony due to governmental restrictions, we will release a prepared virtual Commencement on July 24, 2020. The virtual ceremony will be posted to the school website.

In summary:

  1. Traditional Commencement will be hosted on Friday June 26, 2020 at 7:00 pm.


or pending uncontrollable circumstances:


  1. Traditional Commencement will be hosted on Friday July 24, 2020 at 7:00pm (the last opportunity for a Traditional Commencement).


or pending uncontrollable circumstances:


  1. A virtual Commencement will be published and posted to the school website ( on Friday July 24, 2020.

Parents/Guardians of seniors will receive guidelines for the virtual Commencement
