The Cumberland County School System announced the 2020 high school graduation schedule and guidelines:
All ceremonies will be aired on Facebook Live on the Cumberland County Schools TN Facebook page.
Phoenix graduation: Friday, June 26 @ 6:30 @ SMHS auditorium
SMHS graduation: Monday, June 29 @ 6:30 @ Panther Stadium or Gymnasium (location will depend on the weather forecast).

Doors will open @ 5:00 for SMHS & CCHS ceremonies and doors will open for Phoenix at 5:30.
All high schools will have a MANDATORY graduation practice on the morning of their respective graduations @ 8:30. Tickets will be handed out during the graduation practice. For CCHS and SMHS, if the graduation ceremony is outdoors, each graduate will receive 4 tickets. If the graduation ceremony is indoors, each graduate will receive 2 tickets. Phoenix graduates will receive 4 tickets for their ceremony due to the smaller number of graduates.
For the graduation ceremony, each graduate’s ticket holders must come in together. Temperature checks will be required at the gates for admittance. Anyone with a temperature over 100 will not be admitted. Each graduate’s ticket holders will be seated together; there will be no open seating because of CDC (Centers for Disease Control) guidelines.
Guests will not be permitted on the stage, track, field or gym floor before, during or after the ceremony. Please adhere to all social distancing guidelines throughout the ceremony and while on campus.
