Despite complaints from some Stone Bridge High School families, the Ashburn school’s graduation is set to stay on a Sunday.
Stone Bridge’s graduation was originally scheduled for a Tuesday, but was switched to Sunday, June 9, back in July. Students and parents protested the change at the past two School Board meetings, stating the scheduling change conflicted with church services.
Students who would perform at the graduation with the school’s choir or band said they would likely have to miss the ceremony because of obligations to also perform at church. The graduation ceremony is scheduled for 10 a.m.
Stone Bridge sent out a school-wide survey about the graduation date change earlier this month in response to community concerns, and 80 percent of responses said to keep the ceremony on the Sunday, Loudoun County Public Schools officials said.
