Charles City High School’s 2020 graduation date has been moved back one week.

School board members unanimously approved to move the date from June 6 to June 13 due to a conflict with the VHSL Group 1A Track and Field Championship meet scheduled to be held that day.

“With upwards of 20 seniors possibly participating in that meet, we didn’t want to take that opportunity from them,” superintendent of schools David Gaston commented. “We took this to the senior class and they unanimously supported the change to support their peers.”

Parents were also notified about the potential change to the schedule. The senior exam schedule will not be altered as a result of the change to the graduation date.
