Frederick County Public Schools is providing multiple opportunities for families and the community to view this year’s virtual graduation ceremonies. The school system will share each ceremony via FCPS social media platforms and over FCPS TV, as well as from a link on each high school’s webpage. FCPS is also purchasing USB drives with each school’s ceremony to issue to graduates as a keepsake.
The schedule for broadcasts of graduation videos on FCPS TV via Comcast channel 18 and at www.fcps.org/tv is as follows:
Monday, June 8 and 15: 10 a.m. Frederick High
Tuesday, June 9 and 16: 10 a.m. Brunswick High; 2 p.m. Middletown High; 7 p.m. Linganore High

In addition, the Frederick County Government and the Weinberg Center will celebrate 2020 graduates.

The Weinberg Center marquee will display “Congratulations Class of 2020” and a different school name each day from June 8-19. The Weinberg will update the marquee by 10 a.m. daily and leave the name until 9 a.m. the following day (except June 12) so graduates can stop by for photos.
John Healey, executive theater manager at the Weinberg, said, “This is just a small gesture we can provide to recognize the accomplishments of the 2020 graduates.”
The marquee schedule is Monday, June 8-Frederick; Tuesday, June 9-Brunswick; Wednesday, June 10-Catoctin; Thursday, June 11-Tuscarora; Friday, June 12-Oakdale (until 8 p.m. due to the weekend); Saturday-Sunday, June 13-14-Rock Creek and SUCCESS; Monday, June 15-Linganore; Tuesday, June 16-Middletown; Wednesday, June 17-Walkersville; Thursday, June 18-Urbana; and Friday, June 19-Gov.
