The Jonesboro Public School District is pleased to announce that we have signed a contract with Herff-Jones today to produce a virtual graduation for the JHS Class of 2020. Please know that if state/national guidelines on COVID-19 are lifted regarding large gatherings, as specified by authorities, we will also have an outdoor graduation celebration at Cooksey-Johns Field in late June to mid July.

JPS has started the celebration of our seniors each night through the lighting of Cooksey-Johns Field and we will continue to honor the class with this production of their graduation. We are excited that we will have our seniors’ memories archived and produced in a professional manner for students to share with friends and family to be live-streamed and saved for years to come.

While a virtual graduation is never a first choice under normal circumstances, we feel that this option is the best at this time. Seniors will be contacted in the near future with direction on how the collection of information will proceed.
