Graduation Updates

Graduation Reminders

  1. Graduation Practice: Graduation rehearsal will begin at 10 a.m. Wednesday, June 2, 2021, at Stevenson High School. Students should be dropped off at the circle drive in the front of Stevenson and go directly to the Performing Arts Center. D103 will NOT provide busing to rehearsal and students are responsible for their own transportation via car, bike or on foot. Rehearsal will end at 11:30 a.m. and students can be picked up at the entrance to the Stevenson football stadium.

  1. Graduation: Two weather dependent in person graduation celebrations are being planned on June 2, 2021!

    1. First Option, Outdoor: 6:30 p.m. Ceremony in the Stevenson Stadium: All graduates, staff and four family members can attend.

    2. Inclement Weather Option Two: 6:30 p.m. Ceremony indoors in the Performing Arts Center for graduates and staff only. Parents will view the celebration via live stream.

    3. Parents should complete the eighth-grade graduation RSVP and ticket order form on or before Friday, May 14, even if you or your child will NOT be attending the graduation ceremony. Procedures are in place to facilitate contact tracing and ensure the safety of our families. Each family will have uniquely numbered wristbands and contact information is being collected during the RSVP process. D103 staff members will confirm attendees on the master RSVP list as they enter the stadium, ensure appropriate mask wearing, and ask COVID screening questions. Additionally, groups of four will be marked on the bleacher seats to allow for families to be safely distanced from others. For these reasons, community members should not give unneeded tickets to other families and the DW office will not maintain a waiting list and/or grant requests for additional tickets.

    4. The ceremony will be live streamed in both venues and a Stuart-Rodgers photographer will take professional photos of our students that can be purchased online after the ceremony. Picture proofs with order forms will be mailed to the student's home.
