Sauk Valley superintendents: Too early to tell if virus will delay graduations

Taryn Munroe waves as the line of graduates walks out during the start of the Dixon High School graduation ceremony on June 2. Graduation plans, for now, still are in place, but could be modified if the coronavirus situation persists, area superintendents say.

Local superintendents say it's too early to determine whether high school graduation or eighth-grade promotion ceremonies will be pushed back due to the coronavirus crisis.

Superintendents Margo Empen of Dixon, Tom Mahoney of Oregon, Tim Schurman of Chadwick-Milledgeville and Alex Moore of Montmorency School in Rock Falls have informed Sauk Valley Media of that predicament.

Graduations and promotions in the area happen in the last 2 weeks of May and the first week of June, depending on school calendars.

Schools throughout Illinois have been out of session since March 16. April 7 is the projected restart date for classroom instruction.

Some local districts began e-learning curriculums last week, and more will follow this week.

Sauk Valley Community College in Dixon announced Friday that it will postpone its commencement and nursing department pinning ceremony. A new date is not yet set.
