Ralston cancels in-person graduation ceremony after grad tests positive for COVID-19

Ralston cancels in-person graduation ceremony after grad tests positive for COVID-19

Only $3 for 13 weeks

The Ralston Public Schools decided Saturday against having an in-person high school graduation ceremony this week.

The district had scheduled the event for Monday, but Ralston Superintendent Mark Adler announced that a member of the graduating class has tested positive for the coronavirus.

Further, he said in a message to parents and others, the school district has learned that students have held “several graduation parties in the past week.” The district has “significant concerns about the potential spread” of the disease, he said.

The message said the decision came after consultation with the Douglas County Health Department.

Adler said all on-campus student activities scheduled for this week have been canceled. Activities will resume July 27, but the in-person graduation ceremony will not be rescheduled.

A virtual ceremony was held on June 20.
