Canon-McMillan High School Graduation Canceled After Coronavirus Exposure, Ceremony To Be Held Virtually Tonight

CANONSBURG (KDKA) — Canon-McMillan School District has canceled its graduation ceremony for the Class of 2020 after people were potentially exposed to the Coronavirus during a graduation rehearsal.


The graduation practice took place on June 29, with the ceremony scheduled for June 30 at 7 p.m. The Pennsylvania Department of Health said in a letter that anyone who attended the practice at the Canon-McMillan Stadium from 9 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. may have been exposed to COVID-19.


The department instructs anyone present at that practice to quarantine for 14 consecutive days and monitor their symptoms.


The school district will hold a virtual graduation at 7 p.m. tonight instead of an in-person ceremony.


“We hope to see the community virtually tonight and wish our graduates nothing but the best in their future endeavors,” school officials said.
