2021 Graduation Update

2021 Graduates and Families

With the increased likelihood of inclement weather on Saturday and with consideration of student input, we have made the difficult decision to move Graduation to Friday evening, May 14th, at 7:00 PM, at Hutchinson Field. 

This decision will allow for NO limitation of guests and provide the safest environment for our graduates and families. While we know these changes are not ideal for everyone, we do look forward to celebrating this incredible achievement with you. Please look closely at the details outlined below.

2021 Commencement Ceremony will take place at Hutchinson Field on Friday, May 14th at 7:00 PM.  Stadium gates will open at 5:30 PM.

The Commencement Ceremony will not be ticketed, but we are encouraging guests to wear masks and practice social distancing.

Guests will not be allowed on the field during the ceremony. Following graduation, families may join their graduates on the field east of the 50-yard line for photographs. 

We are asking that graduates and guests respect Hutchinson Field and the stadium as a long-standing landmark in our community; silly string, poppers, confetti, or similar items are not permitted in the stadium. Graduates and guests should wear flat-soled shoes; heels are not permitted on the turf.  

Guests can also join via Live Stream: https://vimeo.com/event/988690
