Graduation Ceremony Update:
We are excited to announce our tentative plans to offer in-person graduation ceremonies for our Class of 2021 graduates. This will include the opportunity for each graduate to invite up to four guests to attend the ceremony in person. In addition, we are planning to offer a live stream of the graduation ceremonies to ensure that all family members and friends will have the chance to share in this very important occasion. To provide the safest possible environment for our graduation ceremonies, our current plan is to use outdoor venues, including our high school stadiums, to host graduation ceremonies, if they are able to meet the capacity needs of the graduating class and guests. Graduation is scheduled for Thursday, May 27, with rain dates being set aside for Friday, May 28, and Saturday, May 29 (if necessary). Face coverings and physical distancing will be required for all people in attendance and other COVID-19 precautions will be followed.
