Graduation Update

Hello Bronco families!


I want to first acknowledge the tremendous patience and grace our families and senior have shown during this time with little information and detail as to our senior events. I know that everyone understands all things are in flux, and that we have been limited by the county health department and state metrics, but it is definitely not how we like to operate- we plan in advance, communicate heavily, and work to make sure everyone is on the same page. This year, we have been forced to plan on the fly and be flexible.


That all being said, the date of graduation has not changed. Sunday May 30th. There will be two ceremonies, and seniors will be assigned. (3pm and 7pm). There is a mandatory rehearsal 9am and 10am the morning of May 30th. These ceremonies will be held at Concord Pavilion.


Capacity will be limited, and graduates limited in the number of attendees. The event will be streamed however for those unable to attend.


Keep reading for dates to save for our planned senior events!
