C.H. Yoe Class of 2020 Graduation Ceremony

To the Cameron ISD School Community,

Cameron ISD has developed its graduation ceremony plans in accordance with the guidelines and restrictions provided by the Governor of Texas, the Texas Education Agency, the Texas Department of State Health Services and local government and health officials. As a result, the district will take every precaution to mitigate the potential spread of COVID-19 before, during and after the graduation ceremony of the Class of 2020. If the current climate changes and the Governor of Texas amends his current order, and restricts outdoor in-person graduations, we will postpone our graduation ceremony until a later date. You will receive clear and timely communication in the event there are any changes.
