Graduation Information Class of 2021-Updated 4.30.21

April 20, 2021


The graduating seniors will be seated on the gym floor, facing the audience. At the time of the presentation of diplomas the senior will stand, proceed to the stage, receive the diploma from the stage, and return to their seat.


Lancaster County Health Measures will be followed to ensure everyone’s safety. Any graduate or their guest who does not feel well or has a temperature of 100.4 or higher is asked to not attend. Masks must be worn the entire time. Attendance will be limited to 10 guests per graduate. Tickets will be issued to the graduates and required for attendance.  We will use a lottery system to ensure 4 guest will be seated on the floor. Any remaining guests (up to 6) will have seating in the bleachers. Signs will be placed on the back of the chairs on the floor to “reserve” each family’s location. The bleachers will be socially distanced, open seating. The ceremony will be on Striv.


The SCHEDULE of the exercise is as follows:
