All three ceremonies will be LIVE-STREAMED.  There will also be a final complilation of all three ceremonies which will include any students that were pre-filmed available 1-2 weeks after June 18th.
Parking will be in the front parking lot in front of the school/gym. Students should arrive with their family members attending.  Upon arrival, students should proceed to the pathway between the Gym and Performing Arts Center (PAC).  Professional photographers will be on hand for both candid and procession photos. All students must show proof of completion of their Daily Health Check and Attestation prior to entering the Stadium. 
Parents/guardians/guests should head to the gym and follow social distance markers for seating, and must sit in their household group. Daily Heath Check & Attestation completion will be required, and must be shown prior to entering the facility.

The Graduation Ceremony will begin in the Stadium with Mr. Belcher, student speakers and SVSD School Board members addressing the Class of 2021. At the conclusion of the ceremony in the Stadium, students will proceed to the Gym where they will receive their diplomas in front of their family guests. Students will then proceed out to the front parking lot to meet with their families.
Graduates and families will need to clear the parking lot promptly to allow for the arrival of the next group of Graduates.
Graduation Seating
To comply with health and safety guidelines we are restricted as to the number of people who can attend the graduation ceremonies. Therefore, it is required that every person, other than the graduates, who attends graduation must have a ticket. Each graduate will receive two (2) tickets to the ceremony. All attendees must be household members, listed in Skyward.
Graduation Tickets
Tickets to the graduation ceremony will be available to each graduating senior student and available for pick up at Senior Checkout on June 16th. Students will need to have all fines and fees cleared in order to pick up their tickets. Students will need to sign for their tickets. Tickets will not be distributed to family or friends. Please keep your tickets in a safe location, as tickets cannot be replaced if lost or stolen. 
Graduation Expectations
Since Graduation is a very memorable event in our young people's lives the expectation is that seniors will dress to reflect the respect and honor each graduate has earned while wearing scarlet robes. Acceptable dress for girls is slacks, dresses or skirts with school appropriate blouses/tops and footwear. Boys may wear nice shirts, with pants and appropriate shoes. Seniors who are dressed inappropriately will not be allowed to participate in the ceremony.
As a change for this year, we will be allowing Seniors to decorate their caps. Decorations must be tasteful and not offensive toward any particular person or group. Please be advised that a professional photographer will be on hand to take photos of all graduates for a composite photo. Any cap decoration that is deemed inappropriate by school administration will not be allowed.
We look forward to celebrating all of our Graduates on Friday, June 18th!
