Graduation Details

  • Congratulations to the class of 2021! Graduation ceremonies will be held in-person at the Diamond for all graduates to celebrate with their classmates, families, and friends. Please see below for further information.

  • In-Person Ceremonies and Video Livestream

    The in-person ceremonies will allow our students to experience the most important part of graduation – walking across the stage in their cap and gown to get their diploma. For friends and family who are unable to attend our in-person ceremonies, each RPS high school graduation will be broadcast online via livestream. 
     
    Given new guidance from the CDC and the Governor's Office, we're thrilled to announce that each senior will now receive 8 tickets for graduation! In addition, per the new guidance, please note that we will no longer be requiring physical distancing and that masks will only be required for individuals who have not been vaccinated. Thank you for your grace and understanding as we continue to respond to the evolving guidance from our healthcare officials.
     
    Congratulations, Class of 2021! We can't wait to see our graduates in their cap and gown!
