The last class to graduate from the school under the name T.C. Williams High School will have their change to gather with their peers and loved ones in person.
At a school board meeting on May 6, a group of seniors from the school led a presentation of a plan they’d put together and run by school staff for how to make in-person graduation happen amid lingering concerns about coronavirus.
The plan is to host an in-person graduation at Chinquapin Park on June 12, starting at 9:30 a.m.
The seniors, led by 2021 senior class president Karam Burjas, detailed some of the preliminary plans for distancing and layout.
According to the seniors, there is space for 945-980 students seated in a spaced-out area, which would accomodate the entire graduating class. The guest maximum is being proposed as two members of the household, for a total of 2,800 attendees, but it was noted that the governor’s guidelines mean that could go up to four guests with a total of 4,725 attendees — well below the 5,000 cap on outdoor activity gatherings set by the state.
It’s down from the nine guests allowed in past years, but seniors said they wanted to ensure that the full graduating class would be together for the ceremony in a single session.
According to ACPS, further details for the event are still being finalized.
