Fairfield High School’s graduation ceremony may be held indoors Sunday, though the district won’t make the decision until that morning.

As soon as the district makes an announcement, The Ledger will post it to its website at ffledger.com. The school will also post it to its website at fairfieldsfuture.org, and to its Facebook page.

Graduation will begin at 2 p.m. that day and feature speeches by school superintendent Laurie Noll, school board president Debi Plum and senior Brittan Bowman, chosen by his classmates to give the commencement address.

Attendees may notice seniors wearing ribbons or badges that day, and they are to recognize an accomplishment. Students will be honored for participation in National Honor Society, earning a Silver Cord for having worked more than 60 hours of community service, a recognition from the Red Cross for donating blood, and one for completing the Indian Hills Career Academy.

The class of 2019’s colors are black and silver, and its moto is “Miles may separate us, but memories will always bind us.”

If held indoors …

FHS principal Brian Stone wrote in an email Wednesday that if graduation is held indoors, it will be in the FHS gymnasium. Doors will open at noon, and there will be no limitations on seating for those attending. Guests will have access to the gymnasium from both the north and south entrance of the facility.

Fairfield High School will also be providing a live video feed of the event through its website, fairfieldsfuture.org. The live stream will be available for viewing on the big screen in the high school auditorium to accommodate if seating capacity is an issue in the gymnasium. Doors to the auditorium will open at 1 p.m. to accommodate the overflow if necessary.
