Class of 2021 Graduation

Congratulations Class of 2021!

image of a graduation cap with "Congratulations to the class of 2021"We are proud of the perseverance our seniors have shown this year. To honor them, we will hold in-person, outdoor events for the graduates of comprehensive high schools and programs, June 11 – June 18, on school grounds. In accordance with the Governor’s order, outdoor venues will now be able to accommodate their normal capacity. Events will be livestreamed.

Elementary and middle school promotions will remain virtual at this time. Schools may choose to host individual outside drive-by parades or other outside celebratory events that do not require large gatherings, in order to honor their 5th and 8th grade students being promoted. Middle school promotion videos will be posted on Youtube on June 17 (see schedule below).

APS will notify staff, students, and families as soon as plans are finalized for graduation and other end-of-year events.
