Special Education and Student Supports School Closure Guidance
Class of 2020 Diplomas and Graduation
Class of 2020 Diplomas and Graduation Information:
I hope this finds you well! We are optimistic that conditions will allow for us to have a formal graduation ceremony at Drake Stadium on July 30, 2020. As the Class of 2020 officially graduated on May 22, 2020, the July 30 ceremony is not required but is optional. To participate in the ceremony on July 30, graduates must participate in the mandatory graduation practice on the morning of July 29, 2020. Specific times and information will be shared out on our school website and social media soon. Please read below, as we need some input from you.

Important Information:
Final Transcripts are send out automatically by our registrar after the second week of June. Transcripts are sent to the college or university you listed on your Senior Exit Sheet. If you need additional transcripts or have questions about transcripts, email our registrar at amy.davis@cowetaschools.net.

Diplomas:
Your final transcript is the official document that shows you graduated on May 22, 2020. It is this transcript you present to employers, recruiters, and colleges to show that you have graduated. The actual diploma is a symbolic keepsake. Graduates may pick up diplomas on Thursday, June 11, 2020, from 9:00am-12:00pm at Newnan High School. Graduates will drive up through bus loading and remain in their vehicles. Please have a photo ID to pick up your diploma. Only the graduate may pick up his or her diploma. Due to current social distancing requirements, unfortunately graduates will have to remain in their vehicles. Note: If you owe any remaining fees or fines, you will need to take care of these before you can pick up your diplomas, or come prepared with a check made out to Newnan High School. For questions about fees and fines, email our registrar at patricia.blount@coweataschools.net.

Graduation Ceremony:
The graduation ceremony tentatively scheduled for July 30, 2020, is optional. Also, having the ceremony will be dependent on social distancing and other health and safety guidelines from our local and state health department and other agencies. Every attempt to have a ceremony on July 30 will be made, if conditions are safe to do so. The safety of our graduates, staff members, and members of our community will remain our top priority. There remains a possibility we will have the ceremony as planned. There also remains the possibility we will not be able to have the ceremony, we may have to adjust the times and format of the ceremony, or we may have to incorporate social distancing and safety requirements that may impact the number of people allowed in the stadium and how the ceremony is conducted. Please be understanding, as we are doing the best we can in these unprecedented circumstances. Please monitor our school website and social media for more specific information.

Graduation Practice:
Graduation practice is tentatively set for Wednesday, July 29, 2020, beginning at 8:00am. Dress comfortably. Shorts,T Shirt, sandals or athletic shoes are acceptable. It will be hot. DO NOT bring your cap/gown for practice. Please wear sunscreen.
