While there are still many uncertainties and variables, we can confirm that graduation will be held on Tuesday, June 1, 2021. We will communicate the exact time of the ceremony and details about graduation practice in the upcoming weeks.
You may be aware that last year we ultimately needed to resort to a drive-through graduation format. This year, we are cautiously optimistic that we will be able to offer our seniors a graduation experience more closely aligned with traditional commencement exercises while still adhering to health and safety protocols and capacity restrictions per state guidance. With that in mind, the expected venue for graduation is Atrium Health Ballpark, located at 216 West Avenue, Kannapolis, NC. This venue allows us to conduct graduation in an open-air environment and to socially distance, keeping everyone involved safe. At this time, we do not know exactly how many tickets we will be able to provide to each family, however, we do know that tickets will be limited, so please refrain from making detailed plans until we have more information to share.
Thank you for your support, especially during this challenging final year for your student. Let’s all continue to do our part to keep the COVID numbers tracking in the right direction so that our seniors are able to celebrate this important milestone in a manner more consistent with traditional graduation ceremonies.
