In light of Governor McMaster's loosening of restrictions on public gatherings and attractions across South Carolina, the School District of Pickens County will raise the limit of attendees per graduate from 2 to 4 for graduation ceremonies on May 29. Ceremonies will continue to be held at each school's athletic stadium.


Each graduate will still receive 2 tickets; each ticket will be valid for 2 attendees. We encourage attendees to wear personal protective equipment such as facemasks if possible and to avoid direct physical contact with others. No exceptions will be made for attendance without a ticket; children of all ages will be considered attendees and will require a ticket. 

Extra custodial staff will be on hand to ensure sanitary restrooms and other potential points of contact.

Schools will distribute tickets to each graduate. SDPC will livestream video of each ceremony so that those who cannot attend can watch.

Information about each school and their graduating class is listed below.
