West Fargo Public Schools to allow guests at graduations

Graduates will be allowed to bring two guests to their graduation ceremony.

WEST FARGO, N.D. – One day after Fargo made changes, West Fargo is now allowing in-person graduation ceremonies.

After receiving guidance from Fargo Cass Public Health and other healthcare providers, Sheyenne, West Fargo and Community High School will allow two guests with each graduate.

School leaders are encouraging guests to wear masks and social distance.

They also partnered with Essentia Health to establish necessary protocols to make sure that those attending are healthy.

“We have some new guidance as of yesterday that has been encouraging about events being outdoors and the risks are lesser for those and that we could look at having two guest parents or guardians attend that day,” West Fargo Superintendent Beth Slette said.

All guests are being asked to review the screener tool used to determine if it is safe to attend. If anyone in the household answers YES to any of the questions, the entire household is encouraged to stay home.

The ceremonies will still be livestreamed for anyone who is not able to attend the graduations in person. You can access the livestream link here.

The West Fargo Public School graduation ceremonies are below:

  • Community High School: May 28 at 5:30 p.m. at WFHS Football Field
  • West Fargo High School: May 31 at 1 p.m. at WFHS Football Field
  • Sheyenne High School: May 31 at 4 p.m. at SHS Football Field
