EVERY SENIOR SHOULD REPORT TO THE TCHS FRONT OFFICE TO PICKUP A PACKET AND COMPLETE THE REQUIRED FORM TO SELECT THEIR GRADUATION PARTICIPATION OPTION NO LATER THAN 12 NOON ON MAY 22, 2020.

As we approach graduation for 2020, we are facing unprecedented times and difficult decisions. We do want to honor your reaching this very important milestone of graduation. Due to these unusual times, we have decided to offer each graduate a choice between a traditional graduation ceremony, a drive-through graduation ceremony, or not participating in any graduation ceremony. Please understand that this is a choice and not a vote. We understand there may be concerns and we would like to provide an opportunity for all graduates to participate in a ceremony where you and your family feel comfortable. Each senior must have met all Telfair County High School requirements for graduation in order to participate in either of the graduation ceremonies. Each graduate will be allowed to participate in only ONE ceremony.
