We are eager to host in-person graduation ceremonies at our comprehensive high school stadiums, Merlo Station High School and Tumwater Middle School. We appreciate everyone’s patience and understanding as we’ve navigated the ever-changing landscape caused by this pandemic. However, it’s beginning to feel like we’re settling into a sense of stability, just in time to celebrate the Class of 2021. Schools have already been communicating their graduation plans including these dates and times.
We appreciate the students and families who’ve communicated their overwhelming preference for in-person ceremonies; those in-person ceremonies will also be livestreamed. For students who prefer not to participate in in-person ceremonies, schools are communicating other plans (i.e. drive-through or virtual ceremonies).
Our ceremonies will follow guidance from the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) and Oregon Department of Education (ODE) in regards to outdoor/indoor entertainment establishments. Washington County is in the lower risk category which means that:
- Six feet of social distancing is required between parties.
- Face masks are NOT required outdoors.
- Face masks are required at indoor venues, unless proof of full vaccination is shown.
- Venues can admit up to 50% capacity IF social distancing allows for increased numbers. Schools will communicate ticket allotments.
Depending on the school, diplomas either will be distributed the day of graduation ceremonies or through the mail afterward. Student transcripts noting June graduation dates are available upon request.
It’s impossible to put into words how we all feel about the Class of 2021. For a graduating class to lose so much of their senior year is truly heartbreaking. We want all our seniors to know how proud we are of them. We’ll do everything that we can to celebrate all that they’ve accomplished during their time in the Beaverton School District. Well done!
