Seniors attending Scurry-Rosser High School can breathe a sigh of relief – the district has announced plans to hold a formal graduation ceremony on Thursday, June 4. The ceremony will be held at the Wildcat Stadium, located on the Scurry-Rosser High School campus. Gates will open at 7 p.m., and the ceremony will begin at 8 p.m. No rehearsals will be permitted.

Crandall High School will follow up on Friday, June 5, with an event at Mesquite’s Memorial Stadium. 

Due to the COVID-19 situation, extra precautions must be taken to reduce the risk of potentially spreading illness. Though seniors are excited to receive a formal graduation, both local, and state guidelines must be adhered to during the event. As a result, students and guests will be screened via questioning for symptoms of COVID-19 before entering, and attendees must not have made contact with a confirmed case of the virus in the last 14 days. Scurry-Rosser seniors will be allowed to invite up to 10 guests to the event, where they will be seated within one of two pre-marked squares assigned to each student; each square may contain up to five attendees. In a letter to seniors, Crandall ISD said attendance will be limited, but has not announced a set number of guests. 

For those unable to attend in Scurry, the event will be live streamed on social media to watch from home. A link to the live stream will be shared on the Scurry-Rosser ISD website ( a week beforehand. 

Crandall also will show the ceremonly online and will announce the link shortly.
