Class of 2020 Update: Virtual and In-Person Graduation

May 13, 2020

Good Afternoon Senior Parents,

We wanted to provide you with the latest information regarding Mid-Del graduation.  Our Community Relations Office has been filming staff and students from each high school for the recorded graduation ceremony. This recorded program includes the students who will be featured in the in-person ceremony happening in the summer. The video will be aired on Mid-Del’s YouTube account, Facebook account, and school website on May 23rd as the virtual graduation. You and your student will be able to watch the speeches and view his/her named being called as a graduate from Mid-Del Schools. We will have the video available to download the following week. Please see viewing times below:

Mid-Del Schools will host virtual graduation ceremonies on May 23rd at the following times:

  • Del City High School           10:00 a.m.

We will not be issuing tickets to attend graduation. However, we will be following the guidelines set forth by the City of Oklahoma City in regards to group gatherings identified by COVID-19 procedures, due to the location of the event. We will also be following guidelines set forth by the CDC. We look forward to celebrating our students and their accomplishments online and in-person.
