Graduation Dates for Class of 2020 Tentatively Set

A Joint Message from Bellingham, Options, Sehome and Squalicum Principals

Dear High School Senior Families,

Here are the tentative times, dates and locations for graduation for the class of 2020.

  • Options High School: 6:30 p.m. Thursday, June 4 at Options High School
  • Bellingham High School: 6:30 p.m. Friday, June 5 at Bellingham High School
  • Squalicum High School: 11 a.m. Saturday, June 6 at Squalicum High School
  • Sehome High School: 2 p.m. Saturday, June 6 at Sehome High School
  • Community Transitions: 6 p.m. Tuesday, June 9 at the Bellingham Cruise Terminal

Graduation dates and times could change if school is canceled for any unforeseen circumstance, such as a snow day. A final decision to determine graduation dates will be made no later than Feb. 28, 2020.

The last day for Bellingham, Sehome and Squalicum seniors is tentatively Friday, June 5, 2020. Options seniors’ tentative last day is June 4.

We do not recommend that staff or families make travel plans or other arrangements before February 28, because if the school year gets extended, then our graduation ceremonies would likely be the following week. Under this scenario, the last day for seniors could change. We ask that you avoid making vacation or summer plans during the week of June 15-19, 2020 or you may miss the final days of school and end-of-the-year activities.

Graduation rehearsal dates and times, as well as the number of tickets available for each graduate will be determined by your school. Please note that the last day of school for non-senior students is June 11, which is also subject to change if school is canceled for snow or other circumstances.

We look forward to celebrating your child’s graduation!

Thank you,

Linda Miller, Byron Gerard, Sonia Bell and Miguel Perez
