PRSD graduation ceremonies postponed

PRSD graduation ceremonies postponed

Peace River School Division (PRSD) regretfully advises that all PRSD graduation ceremonies will be postponed until at least the fall of 2020. The decision to postpone graduation ceremonies was made given the recent announcement from Alberta’s Chief Medical Officer Deena Hinshaw whereby restrictions were placed on mass gatherings for all summer events in Alberta.

“Our hearts go out to our graduates and their families” says PRSD Superintendent Paul Bennett. “We know how much our graduates look forward to their senior year and celebrating this important milestone before they embark on the next chapter of their lives. We are extremely proud of their accomplishments and although it is not the same, schools are looking at ways to celebrate our graduates virtually until we are able to hold in-person ceremonies.”

Graduates and families were recently notified by their high school of the division’s decision.
