Please refer to the Senior Newsletter for more details.

Update 4-10-21

We are working to create plans that follow the updated state guidance and our priority is to have an in-person graduation ceremony for our students. More details will be shared later in April. The updated state guidance outlines requirements for each colored tier and will impact that number of spectators that will be allowable at the ceremony. Any guests that may be allowed in less restrictive tiers will need to be from the same student household and cannot attend from out-of-state.

We will also be live streaming the event for those who are not able to attend as a member of the student's allowed number of household guests.

We know that this has been a difficult year for many of our seniors. We are grateful that we received updated guidance that will help us facilitate an in-person ceremony and we are looking forward to celebrating our Class of 2021!!

If you have any questions or concerns please contact .

  • Graduates: Masks are required upon arrival and must be worn for the entire ceremony.

All language and images must be respectful and appropriate, and all items must fit on the top of the cap (with nothing hanging off the edges and nothing more than 1/4 inch on the top).  All caps will be checked the night of graduation and if deemed inappropriate, you will either be given a blank cap or no cap if another one is not available.
