General CCPS Graduation Reminders:

  • Each graduate has been provided four tickets for the ceremony. Chairs will be set up in ‘pods’ of four. It is important for all seniors and guests to understand that seating has been carefully arranged with a variety of considerations in mind, and chairs may not be moved from their location.

  • For years, we’ve held graduation ceremonies indoors and are very familiar with that process. This year, an outdoor ceremony with pandemic restrictions presents a whole new set of challenges, including but not limited to the audio-visual logistics. CRHS and CCPS staff from many departments and several outside contractors form a very large team working hard to make this a great day for seniors and families.

  • Months of planning by so many people should ensure a perfect event. However, we hope that if we do have any unexpected issues that everyone will show patience, grace and understanding.

  • Remember that the most important part of the day will be the fact that we are all together in one place at the same time, celebrating seniors. #classof2021 #colonelTOUGH
