This first occasion will be a TV, video and social-media event that enables you, your graduate and your loved ones to watch and experience commencement from home, while observing coronavirus health and safety guidelines. It will include many of the elements of a traditional graduation, such as student speeches and remarks from local dignitaries. It is during this event that our seniors will be officially pronounced “graduates.” Most important of all, our seniors will each have a well-earned moment in the spotlight during a video slideshow. Graduates’ names will be announced ceremoniously as their photos are shown.

Graduation is about sharing this special moment with family and friends, and in that respect, this will be no different. Henrico County Public Schools’ livestream of this virtual ceremony, as well as a simulcast on cable television, will allow your family to plan small at-home “watch parties” to help celebrate and honor your graduate. We’ll encourage families to post and share their experiences on social media, so we can all see and experience our collective joy together, even though we must continue to be apart.
