  • Graduation Announcement from Mr. Ward

    I am proud to announce the date and time of the Ranburne High School graduation ceremony for the Class of 2020. The ceremony will be held on Monday, June 8 at 7:00 p.m. at Harlen Robinson Stadium. In case of inclement weather, the ceremony will be rescheduled later on June 11.  Each senior will receive 6 tickets for graduation. The tickets will be picked up at the high school office on Thursday, May 28 between 9:00-3:00. 


    As excited as we are about the ceremony, we are also cautious, alert, and committed to ensuring the safety of all who attend and we must follow the state guidelines for the event.

    For this reason, the following guidelines will be in place:


    • Social distancing guidelines requiring six feet between members of different households will be enforced prior to , during, and after the ceremony. For this reason, each senior family will be allowed to invite 6 guests to the ceremony. All children, including infants, will be required to have a ticket.
    • The campus will be open at 6:00 p.m. We will not allow entrance into the stadium or stadium parking lot until 6:00. Guests will park behind the stadium in the Ranburne Elementary School parking lot (used for season football parking). All guests must show tickets before entering the parking area. 
    • Senior students will park in front parking at the main entrance or  high school gym parking lot. 
    • We will not be able to take pictures or socialize in the parking lots prior to the ceremony.
    • Once guests are parked, you will go to be seated in the stadium in a designated area. The seating areas will be arranged to follow social distancing guidelines and will be arranged to sit no more than 6 people in an area. Attendees will have to remain in their designated seat for the entire duration of the event. The designated seating areas will be outlined in the stadium bleachers.
    • You may take pictures, but you have to stay in your seat.
    • At the conclusion of the ceremony, senior graduates will march out to the end of the stadium and leave campus. Guests will be asked to also leave the stadium in a gradual release and then leave campus. No one will go on the field or remain on campus after the ceremony to socialize.


    The faculty and staff of Ranburne High School are very disappointed and sympathetic to the fact our Seniors are not receiving a “normal” graduation, however, we must follow the state guidelines. We are excited to honor our graduates and we appreciate your understanding during this unusual time.

    Senior Guidelines


    • There will not be a graduation practice. 
    • Seniors will go directly from their car to the football field. Each student will have a prearranged seat with their name on it. Honor graduates will sit on the front row. All others will be arranged alphabetically.
    • Seniors will not be allowed to go anywhere but to their designated seat. 
    • At the conclusion of the ceremony, the music will play and you will march out front row to back row. At that time, you will be dismissed and leave campus. 
    • You will go celebrate at home or off campus.
    • Please come dressed and ready. It will be hot, I would not recommend  arriving until 6:30 pm.
    •  Boys should wear dress shirts, dress pants, tie, socks, and shoes. Girls should wear a “Sunday” dress and shoes.
    • The tassel is worn on the right of the cap and you will be told to move it to the left side at the end of the ceremony.
    • All fees and financial obligations must be met before graduation.

  • Hello Parents and Community Members,

    At such an uncertain time for us all, one thing is certain...the sense of unity we all have and the love of the Cleburne County community that we share.

    Our school system needs your help to be sure that we receive the funding we need for operating expenses next school year. If you have not completed your Census questionnaire, we truly need you to do that! The census directly impacts funding for our schools.

    Here is the link to use to fill out the census.


    It takes less than 5 minutes to complete. We need everyone to be counted! Please help your school system so that we can better serve you!

    Thank you all so much! We truly look forward to seeing you again soon!

  • March 31, 2020 - Curriculum Update due to COVID-19

    Dear Parents/Guardians and Students:
    We are working diligently to develop our plans to meet student needs as we make the shift to a distance learning model due to the national response to COVID-19 and school closures. Obviously, our efforts to provide educational continuity for all of our students during the school closure period include strategic planning for our students. Although these services may look different in light of these unfortunate circumstances, our commitment to your child and your child’s success remains the same.

    Teachers, counselors, and staff are currently gathering information from student households about the availability of devices and internet access for completion of online course work. You will be receiving communication from the teacher or staff who currently teaches your child to assess your child’s technological needs and your communication preferences. They will discuss what will be accessible for your child during the school closure period including virtual services and/or paper assignments.

    Our current plan is to gather information and prepare lessons and materials over the next few days and follow guidelines provided by the Alabama State Department of Education to begin the delivery of these lessons, be it online or via paper packets, on Monday, April 13, 2020. Many state news agencies are stating that April 6 is the day these lessons will begin; however, Cleburne County is having a scheduled Spring Break April 6-10, 2020 so we will begin our lessons on Monday, April 13, 2020.

    There are three options for parents and students to receive the course work:

    Option 1 - Digital Delivery via online learning platform.
    Option 2 - Pickup a paper packet at school when picking up student meals.
    Option 3 - Delivery of paper packet to the home (option only available on limited circumstances, more info coming)

    Paper packets (if needed) will be given out twice during the remainder of the school year. The first session will begin on April 13th and will contain course work to span approximately 3 weeks. The second session will be the first of May and will contain any remaining course work that needs to be completed prior to the end of the school year. Further information will be provided as to how to return the paper packets to teachers. If using pencil/paper resources, please keep up with them.

    We are eager to work together in partnership to design and implement an effective alternative learning program for your child, in light of the current circumstances. Should you have any questions at this time, please contact me at 256-926-7046 or email me at cworthy@cleburneschools.net.

    With Sincerest Regards,

    Coline Worthy
    Curriculum & Instruction Coordinator

  • The governor announced today that we will not return to school this year due to the threat of the spread of COVID-19.

    We have not received exact requirements that apply to us in Cleburne County at this time, but we expect to get advice and directives from the Alabama State Department of Education soon.

    Your child will have the opportunity to complete the standards that they may have missed due to this emergency. Our staff will be working to best determine what needs to be available to each student and how to get the information to them during this school closing.

    We know that internet access is not available to every child, so other methods will be in place to get needed work to students. Please be patient with us and look for updates next week on our Cleburne County Schools App, Website, and Facebook page to inform you about what is next.

    The most important task we have is to listen to health officials. Stay at home when possible and always practice social distancing and good hygiene to help defeat this virus.

    Thank you for being patient with us and we will be getting more information to you next week.
