New Bedford Public Schools: No in-person graduation for 2020


The following is a statement from New Bedford Public Schools Superintendent Thomas Anderson:

“We are in a time unlike any other that we have experienced. Although anxiety remains high, I was very pleased with the success and excitement around our multiple virtual graduation ceremonies we had in June. Last spring New Bedford High School scheduled a tentative August in-person graduation date based on the health and safety requirements at that time. Unfortunately, at this time I do not believe we should bring together a very large crowd of people. The NBHS staff is in the process of creating a plan to distribute Diplomas and yearbooks to students by appointments on August 4, 5, and 6th.”
