The Dunkirk City School District’s commencement plans remain up in the air and depend greatly on state and county executive orders to outline what the district can and cannot do.

“Right now we are talking about alternative plans to graduation this year,” Superintendent Michael Mansfield told the OBSERVER Friday. “There’s a possibility we might do an outdoor one and we are scouting locations for that though a virtual commencement has also been mentioned.”

According to Mansfield many school districts around the country have had great luck with a virtual one and so the district is leaning toward that option. Parents and attendees are asked to save the date of June 27 if an outdoor one becomes the choice with a rain date of June 28 if need be.
