Roanoke County Public Schools will live stream its high school graduations on Friday.
Northside High School (9 a.m.), William Byrd (11:30 a.m.), Cave Spring (2:30 p.m.), and Hidden Valley (5 p.m.) will graduate Friday at the Salem Civic Center.
Glenvar’s graduation is scheduled for 9 a.m. Friday at the school’s football stadium. The ceremony will be streamed via tape delay.
Here is the news release from Roanoke County Public Schools.
Friends and families of graduating Roanoke County seniors will once again be able to watch the pomp and circumstance of graduation on Friday, June 6 even if they can’t be in the stands in person. For the fourth straight year, Roanoke County Public Schools will provide live streaming coverage of graduation ceremonies with Graduation 2014 Live.
Graduation ceremonies being held at the Salem Civic Center this year will be streamed live via the Roanoke County Public Schools Web site at: http://www.rcs.k12.va.us/graduation.
“Not everyone is able to attend graduation in person. Many students have family and friends who do not live in the Roanoke Valley, or in Virginia or even in the United States. We wanted to create an opportunity for those who could not attend graduation in person to be able to watch the ceremonies online,” said Roanoke County Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Lorraine Lange.
“We thank the Salem Civic Center for providing the network support to make this new opportunity possible,” Dr. Lange said.
Four Roanoke County high schools are holding graduation ceremonies at the Salem Civic Center:
• 9 a.m.: Northside High School
• 11:30 a.m.: William Byrd High School
• 2:30 p.m.: Cave Spring High School
• 5 p.m.: Hidden Valley High School
Live online coverage for these high schools will begin approximately 5-10 minutes before each graduation begins.
Glenvar High School has scheduled their graduation ceremony for Highlander Stadium at 9 a.m. and, therefore, will be streamed via tape-delay. In the event of inclement weather on June 6, GHS will move graduation ceremonies to the Salem Civic Center at 7:30 p.m. If the GHS graduation is moved to the Salem Civic Center, it will be streamed live.
Beginning June 7, family and friends can watch replays of graduation ceremonies with Graduation 2014 Rewind. Playback version of the 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013 ceremonies are still available for viewing online.
