Dubois Central Catholic hopes to hold traditional graduation ceremony


DuBois, PA — DuBois Central Catholic School is hoping to hold a traditional graduation, with perhaps a couple of adjustments for social distancing.

DCC President Gretchen Caruso says, because their Class of 2020 has just 30 students, a traditional ceremony is more feasible for them than it would be for other larger school systems.

However, this ceremony would not be open to the public and would be limited to just students and their immediate family.

Many of the DCC students have spent their entire school career inside one building for 15 years… from preschool to their senior year.

Caruso says she knows that larger school districts have had to make the difficult choice to hold their graduations in different, virtual ways. She says she knows it might come down to that for DCC as well, but she wants to be cautiously optimistic and plan for a traditional ceremony with some slight adjustments.

Graduation weekend is tentatively scheduled for June 6 and 7, with Baccalaureate Mass that Saturday and the graduation ceremony on Sunday.
