Burnet CISD Graduation Ceremonies Announced

2020 Graduation Information NEW as of 05/20/20
Thank you for your patience as we have worked to provide you and your families with a safe, meaningful graduation ceremony. In consideration of current public safety restrictions and guidelines, we will hold the Quest High School graduation on Thursday, June 4 at 7:30 p.m. at Bulldog Field and the Burnet High School graduation on Friday, June 5 at Bulldog Field at 7:30 p.m.
 
Tickets will be required for all ceremonies. Burnet CISD is working within the guidelines to safely provide each graduate with the maximum number of tickets. Once that is determined, tickets will be distributed to students. Unfortunately, we will not be able to open the graduation ceremonies to the general public.
 
We are still working on some final details, but we wanted you to know a few facts now so that your family can make plans accordingly. The ceremonies will be different from years past, but each student will walk across the stage, get their diploma and have his/her moment in the spotlight. They have earned it, and we are honored to celebrate it with them.
