Graduation Date set

The date for the Joel Barlow High School Class of 2018 Commencement Ceremony has been set for Sunday, June 17th at 1:30pm at the O’Neill Center on the Campus of Western Connecticut State University.

Given the fact that our trial period of Spring seemed to have expired with multiple March/April snow storms (darn that groundhog!), there were few good alternatives for our graduation exercises. The last day of school for JBHS (at this moment) is Thursday, June 21st. We will be back in touch to explain how seniors will be spending those final days of school. For now, we invite you to “save the date” and join us as we celebrate the Class of 2018.
