Congratulations to our 2020 Graduates!  

This is definitely an exciting milestone for each of our graduating seniors.  We also understand this has been a semester of many changes for each of our graduating seniors  and families.  Fort Davis ISD is also looking forward to this memorable occasion for the Class of 2020.   

Please see below for information regarding the upcoming ceremony.  A health screening form will be your admission ticket into the auditorium for filming and for the ceremony on the football field for the graduate and up to 5 family members of the same household.

All of this information will be mailed to the graduate's home address, including the screening letter for admission into the ceremony. 

Family and friends who do not have a letter for admission to sit in the stands will be allowed to view the ceremony from their parked vehicles around the football field green pipe fence.

If you have any questions, please call the high school principal at (432) 426-4444. 

Way to go 2020 Fort Davis Graduates!
