Graduation: Friday, May 21, 2021 (rain dates May 22 & 23)
- We are trying to create a full-class ceremony in the stadium. Again, limitations will greatly restrict the number of guests who can attend, but we will make arrangements to live stream the ceremony.
- There will likely be a rehearsal on Thursday, May 20, 2021.
We in no way have finalized any plans, but we have secured dates for key events and will begin planning the details of each. All of the plans that we develop will align with safety guidelines from the CDC, IDPH, and the Dupage County Health Department. While gatherings are currently limited to 50 people (with other requirements), we are developing plans with the hope that this restriction will be eased. As with everything else this year, we will be prepared to adjust as needed.
