Class of 2020
Plans to honor the Ashdown High School Class of 2020
We know these are not the plans we had all envisioned, but rest assured our Ashdown administrative team has been diligently working to plan alternative arrangements for many milestones that typically occur at the end of an AHS student's senior year. We will post updates to this page as more information becomes finalized.
We realize that having to move these dates from their original times will create inconveniences and decisions, but it is important for us to offer the traditional face-to-face events for our seniors who deserve the best we can provide. Without a doubt, these extraordinary times have created unprecedented but necessary changes in order to keep our seniors and their families safe.

AHS Staff Senior Gifts
On Wednesday, May 20th, seniors will drive through the AHS Portico to receive gifts from AHS Staff from 10:30-11:30 a.m. Please remain in your vehicles.
Ministerial Alliance Gifts
On Thursday, May 21st, seniors who choose can drive through the AHS Portico to receive a gift from the Ashdown Ministerial Alliance from 10:30-11:30 a.m. Please remain in your vehicles.
A recording of our seniors will be posted online on Thursday, May 21st at 7:30 p.m. This is to include all seniors scheduled to graduate this year.
We have set a tentative date of Friday, July 10, at 9 a.m. for our graduation ceremony. This will be held at Dick Hays Stadium at Ashdown High School.
No traditional graduations can occur before July 1. As that time nears, the Arkansas Department of Education (ADE) and the Arkansas Department of Health (ADH) will be reassessing as to the safety of large gatherings. We will proceed as directed, but know that we will do all within our power to give our seniors the graduation ceremony that they deserve. They have worked 13 long years to reach this day and we want to make it as special as possible for them and their families.
We will proceed as we are able.
Event(s) will be rescheduled as we are able.
Senior Graduation Lawn Signs
AHS Seniors have had lawn signs already appear in their yards and were delivered by AHS Staff. Thank you to Mrs. York, her staff, and Ashdown Public Schools for making this possible.
