Graduation for the Class of 2021 is approaching.  At last week’s Board of Education meeting it was decided to proceed with graduation plans in as normal of a setting as we can.  As the weeks fly by in April and May, the EJSH administration and staff will work on completing these plans and providing for a minimally invasive day as possible. 

Key Points to know for now:

  • The ceremony starts at 2 PM on Sunday May 23rd and doors will open to the public at 1:30
  • No tickets are required and there will be no limiting of guests at this time
  • Two location settings will be offered
    • Gym – will be mask optional environment and will be where the actual ceremony takes place just like in years past
    • Performing Arts Center – will be for those wishing to mask and social distance.  A video feed from the gym will be available
  • Graduating students will be allowed to walk across the stage to receive their diplomas and have the option to shake hands with BOE members
  • A traditional pre-Covid ceremony is our goal
  • USD327 and Ellsworth High School will do their best to say “Good-bye” to the Class of 2021 at the ceremony and we hope to make it an enjoyable celebration for all.   
  • If plans must change, we will keep you informed 

We hope to see you there and celebrate our senior class!
