Graduation Information

  • Graduation Information for the Class of 2020

    (email from school principals to senior students and families -- posted: June 13, 2020)

    Due to restrictions in place during Phase 3 of the Restore Illinois Plan, District 211 high schools will be unable to utilize the June 20th potential graduation date that was previously communicated to families of senior students. Specifically, the gathering limit of 10 people restricts our opportunity to host a traditional graduation ceremony. As we look ahead to July, it is unknown whether the gathering limitation will remain in place or be increased to the 50-person limit described in Phase 4 of the Restore Illinois Plan.

    With this in mind, we have begun to develop a plan that will allow seniors and their families to participate in a “mini-ceremony” at District 211 high schools on July 25th. Detailed information regarding this optional event, including safety protocols, how to reserve a time, procedures for entering the school building, and other information will be provided in early July. Depending on the level of interest and gathering limitations, we may add additional dates and times for the “mini-ceremony.”

    Student diplomas should arrive at your home via USPS mail by the end of June. If you have questions regarding diplomas, please contact our school’s student services department.
