The ceremonies were rescheduled for obvious reasons this spring. Davenport's graduation was scheduled for July 19, while PV's was set for this Saturday.

This statement was issued on PV's website.

It is with deepest regret, the Pleasant Valley Community School District is cancelling live graduation. Due to the increased cases of COVID among our students and the community, we do not want to jeopardize the health of our families. It is not wise to have over 1,000 students and family members in our stadium as the cases continue to increase. Therefore, the decision has been made to cancel the ceremony this coming Saturday, July 11.

We will hand out diplomas to each student when he or she would have picked up their tickets today and tomorrow.
