Deer Park Graduation 2021

Local high school students are filled with dreams of graduation. For seniors, it is the season for celebrations mixed in with finals. This year’s graduation ceremonies will still bear the marks of the COVID-19 virus, but it is beginning to resemble what most parents recognize. 

For Deer Park High School, the ceremony is scheduled for June 12th. The actual ceremony will have valedictorian Malorie Lee speaking, along with a message from  Superintendent Travis Hanson that will be presented in a pre-recorded virtual setting. Following the ceremony, the seniors, along with their families will go to the high school theater. At the appointed time the senior will walk across the stage and receive their diploma as their families watch. Each senior is allowed to have up to 10 family and friends there to observe. 

The diploma pickup times are as follows:

(Last name initial)

A through C 2:00 – 2:35pm

D though G 2:35 – 3:05pm

H through K 3:05 – 3:35pm

L through O 3:35 – 4:05pm

P through Z 4:05 – 4:35pm

Students, along with their families and friends will enter the theater from the commons area one group at a time during their designated time frame (see above) based on the last name. The graduate will walk across the theater stage, pick up their diploma cover, have their photo taken with Mr. Feist, and then exit. Family is welcome to cheer and take pictures. The high school will be mailing a complimentary photo to the graduate’s home.

Seniors will then need to return to the High School on Monday, June 14th between 8:00am and 3:00pm to pick up their actual diploma. 

Additionally, on the 14th, graduates can pick up their Certificate of Immunization (CIS) form. Seniors should also check Skyward for any fines that are due. Fines need to be paid before their diploma is released.

On Monday, June 14th, the ceremony can be viewed on YouTube.
