  • Students will continue to meet in the Gym as planned. Students should enter from Door 4 (next to the softball field). 

  • Parents and IMMEDIATE FAMILY MEMBERS ONLY will park and enter Bryan Middle School from the Main Entrance and enter the auditorium. 

  • All parents and immediate family members must wear a mask while at Bryan Middle School. 

  • Immediate family members are only permitted due to limited space. Family groups can sit together in the auditorium. 

  • We ask that families stick together and maintain a social distance from other families. 

  • We ask that families do not bring balloons so as to not obstruct the view of anyone seated in the auditorium.

  • Parking will be tight. We encourage families to come in one car together. Families may need to park on the side streets around Bryan. 

In-person Diploma Distribution Event in Auditorium

  • Students will enter the auditorium as a homeroom class. Each homeroom teacher will read the names of each student. 

  • We ask that families remain quiet as names are called in order for each family to be able to hear their student’s name. 

  • Tom Killian photography will continue to take pictures of students as they receive their diploma on stage. 


  • Families will be dismissed by homeroom and will meet their student in the cafeteria. 

  • Pictures will be available for purchase in the cafeteria through Tom Killian Photography for 2 for $20. 

  • There will not be the opportunity for a family photo indoors, however, families are welcome to visit the outdoor tent off of Euclid for outdoor family photos. Bryan staff and PTA members can assist you in taking a quick family picture. 

  • We ask that families exit swiftly so the next promotion wave can begin. 

  • The Virtual Awards Assembly and Virtual Promotion Ceremony will be emailed to 8th grade families at 4:00pm. This link can be shared with other family members. The Virtual Promotion Presentation is pre-recorded including our student award speeches. Each student’s name is also read from their homeroom teacher. 

We appreciate everyone’s continued flexibility and patience as we celebrate our 8th graders this afternoon. Please reach out to the main office if you have any questions. We are excited to celebrate your student this evening!
