Class of 2021 Graduation Information and Senior Newsletter

High School Graduation is a landmark event for students and families.

We are excited to announce that Commencement Ceremonies will take place on our campus at Barb Barrows Stadium on Friday, May 28.

As the date approaches, exact times and size of each ceremony will be adapted to fit the current public health guidance. Families should plan for times that could potentially span the entire day. Each graduate will be provided two tickets for guests to attend the graduation. All ceremonies will also be streamed live.

While this is an important date so that families can begin to plan, we know there will be many more questions and details you will have. Please give us time to address those in the coming weeks. We want to provide the best experience for our students and that means being thorough and thoughtful in everything we do.

Below is a link to our first draft of the Senior Newsletter:
