Vicksburg, Miss. – The Vicksburg Warren School District is pleased to announce the following changes and updates to the plans for the graduation ceremonies at River City Early College High School, Vicksburg High School and Warren Central High School.

Following current mandates set by local and state leaders, the ceremonies at the Vicksburg Convention Center may be filled to 75% capacity and attendees will be required to wear masks covering both nose and mouth for the duration of the event. The changes will allow the Class of 2021 to graduate together and still provide the opportunity for a limited number of family and friends to attend the ceremonies.

REVISED GRADUATION SCHEDULE AND DETAILS:

May 26, 2021 – WEDNESDAY: River City Early College – 6 p.m.

  • Approximately 60 graduates
  • 10 guest tickets each

May 27, 2021 – THURSDAY: Warren Central High School – 6 p.m.

  • Approximately 250 graduates
  • 6 guest tickets per graduate

May 28, 2021 – FRIDAY: Vicksburg High School-  6 p.m.

  • Approximately 185 graduates
  • 8 guest tickets per graduate

If executive orders change between now and the graduation dates, further adjustments to current plans may be necessary. While last minute changes can be challenging, the District will continue to find ways to safely celebrate the accomplishments of this year’s Seniors and acknowledge the support provided by their families throughout the years.

Additional information about graduation will be distributed to Seniors at each school.
