*Ceremony times were updated 4/16/2021
Each graduate will receive tickets for four guests. High schools will host a lottery for additional tickets. We’re exploring options to live-stream each ceremony; we’ll share more information when we have it.
We’re following guidance from local, state and national health experts to ensure we host a safe outdoor ceremony for our students and families. Masks are required and must be worn over the nose and mouth. Social distancing will be enforced, although households and families will be allowed to sit together.
Each school will host senior prom activities on Friday, June 4. The goal is to provide several fun activities for our seniors. We will share more information as soon as details are finalized, so save the date.
We have collaborated all year to ensure our students have a memorable senior experience for all of the best reasons – not only because your senior year is happening during a global health crisis. We’re working with the Winnebago County Health Department to ensure we can still have fun and celebrate this class safely. We are looking forward to celebrating the Class of 2021!
