    Class of 2020 Traditional Graduation Ceremony
    July 22, 2020 

    Should we be able to host a traditional commencement ceremony, we have reserved Wed., July 22 at 4 p.m. for this event on Prevost Field at RHS, pending future state and health guidance/mandates. Our goal is to decide whether this traditional commencement will be possible and announce this decision by July 1, 2020.

Opt-In to Receive Day-of Notifications

  • To ensure safe and organized visits on campus for each student's individual graduation ceremony, we are using our SchoolMessenger alert system should we need to text families regarding delays or other circumstances that may affect the flow of the event. You must opt-in to receive these texts. For parents who have not yet opted-in, or if you are unsure if you have opted-in, text "Yes" or "Y" to the number 67587 and you will automatically be subscribed to receive text messages from RHS and the district. We will be conducting a test of our text system prior to Wednesday. 

RTSD to Live Stream Ceremonies on YouTube

  • Commencement for the Class of 2020 will be lived streamed on the RTSD YouTube channel (https://bit.ly/rtsd-tv) for the duration of the event on Wednesday, June 10. Our hope is that extended family and friends will be able to watch and enjoy as our seniors become Radnor alumni. School Messenger will be utilized to communicate any delays or any unanticipated issues on graduation day.
