Upcoming Events

Individual Graduation Recognition

In addition to the Virtual Commencement Ceremony on June 4, we will also provide our newest graduates an opportunity to participate in a voluntary in-person Individual Graduation Recognition event.  Each student who wishes to participate will be provided with a five-minute window between noon and 5 p.m.  Honorees will hear their name called over Lancer Stadium’s loudspeakers and they will have an opportunity to have their graduation photos taken by a professional photographer before exiting the facility to make room for the next honoree.  Students, family and staff will be required to comply with the state’s social distancing guidelines during all District-sponsored events.
