Graduations Set For Hempstead, Senior And WD

The Dubuque and Western Dubuque school districts plan to have graduation ceremonies this weekend. Because of COVID-19, both events will be held outside. Dubuque superintendent Stan Rheingans says the ceremonies for Hempstead and Senior will be held inside Dalzell Field on Saturday, and the number one priority will be social distancing. Students have been issued passes which allows them to bring four guests to the ceremony. The Hempstead ceremony starts at 10 am followed by Senior at 3. Western Dubuque Superintendent Rick Colpitts says likewise, social distancing will be practiced at their ceremony, which will be held at 10 am, weather permitting at Buckman Field. Like Dubuque, each student at Western Dubuque received four tickets to give to their guests. Both the Western Dubuque  and Cascade ceremonies will be livestreamed. The Cascade graduation is set for Sunday at 1 pm in the gymnasium.
