Longview ISD has released graduation options for seniors to select for their final steps at Longview High School. 

“We want to ensure our students, families, and staff safety and still allow our students to have this milestone moment,” James Brewer, LHS Principal said. “We could not be more excited to celebrate our seniors’ time at Longview High School.”

“The current health crisis does mean, however, that this year’s graduation celebration and ceremonies will be unique.  We want our seniors to know how deeply the loss of the events and celebrations that normally accompany a student’s senior year are felt.  We are committed to honoring and celebrating our seniors with their families. ”

The options for LHS Seniors to choose from are as follow:
 

Plan A - Individual Ceremonies

(For students and parents who do not want to participate in a large graduation ceremony.)

Beginning May 12 through May 15, students and parents may come to Longview High School to experience an individual graduation ceremony.  The ceremony will be filmed and combined with films of other commencement events for students to keep. A copy of this film will be given to each graduating senior.  

  1. This ceremony will be conducted at LOBO stadium or in the LOBO breezeway if it rains.
  2. The times will be 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.
  3. Students should wear caps and gowns.
  4. Social distancing will be enforced. Students should come to their individual ceremony with only their family members.
  5. All students and parents should R.S.V.P to schedule a day and time for their individual graduation experience.  Please call 903.663.1301 to reserve a time.
  • Those who participate in the individual ceremonies during the week of May 15 will done alphabetically according to the following schedule:
  • Tuesday, May 12 A—Gay
  • Wednesday, May 13 George—Mathis
  • Thursday, May 14 Maturino—Still
  • Friday, May 15 Stone—Zarate

 

Plan B - Formal Graduation Ceremonies

Seniors may participate in a graduation ceremony at Lobo Field on the first week of June. Several different ceremonies will be scheduled so that social distancing can be maintained.  Due to guidelines from state authorities, we have to move formal outside ceremonies to after June 1. Longview High administrators will release more information on this ceremony by May 19. 
 

Graduation FAQ

Will there be an IB Robing before the Formal Graduation Ceremony on May 29? If not, will they be able to get their hoods?

Mrs. Linda Buie, LHS Dean of Instruction: "We are planning to do a robing ceremony at the graduation ceremony on May 29th."

 

Will they be able to get their honor cords before the Formal Graduation Ceremony on May 29?

Mrs. Buie: "Students will receive their GLOBE Scholar medallions and their academic honor cords for the ceremony."

 

Is there a limit to the family members that can attend the individual ceremonies? Is there a limit to the family members that can attend the Formal Graduation Ceremony?

Mrs. Buie: "There is not a limit to the number of family members that can attend the private ceremony. We are unsure about a limit on the 29th; it will be based on the number participating, and we won't know that until the end of next week."

 

Can a graduate participate in both ceremonies?

Mrs. Buie: "Unfortunately, students may not participate in both ceremonies."
