    Graduation Date: Monday June 14th at 8:00 pm @ Memorial Stadium, Seattle
    With the latest shift to Phase III, and with new guidance from the governor and OSPI, we are working to design a limited in-person graduation. The guidelines that we are working with include:
    · Graduating seniors will be able to be seated on the stadium field using social distance guidelines which include exceeding the 400-person limitation that other events are under.
    · During the event, the lower field will be reserved for seniors, admin and counselors, and limited dignitaries.  If we get clearance that we can add other faculty safely.
    · During the event, graduates will be announced by name readers from their seat.  They will stand for a moment and then sit back down as another graduate is recognized.  We will not have students moving to the stage, shaking hands, or receiving a diploma directly from an adult.  At the “turning of the tassel,” all seniors will be asked to stand and turn their tassel before waving to their family.
    · Designated seat assignments (seats/bleachers have numbers or letters for each individual space) will allow us to use 25% occupancy.
    · Each senior will be allocated up to a total of 4 tickets to provide to family members.  Tickets will have an assigned seat/pod, date, and time. More info to come.
    · Guests and graduates will need to follow instructions for entrance and exit to limit standing around or gathering of large groups.
    · Masks will be required by all attendees.

    Graduation Distribution (Cap and Gowns and Senior Yard Signs!)
    · Distribution will take place just outside the Commons if the weather cooperates, inside if it does not. (Similar to materials distribution this year)
    · Distribution dates are May 12th 12:00-2:00, May 13th 4:00-5:00, and May 18th 4:00-5:00.

    Prom 
    We are very sorry to confirm that there will be NO school sponsored Prom due to an inability to host large group gatherings inside at this time. We are hoping to do an alternative celebration in early June, if possible.

    We are looking forward to celebrating the class of 2021!
