Class of 2021

Bend-La Pine Schools Release Graduation Plans

Article Date: Apr 21, 2021

We know that graduation is on the minds of seniors and their families at this time of year, especially after all the hardships our students have faced throughout this pandemic. It’s on our minds, too. We’re excited to share our graduation plans with you -- mark your calendars!

Commencement Ceremony - Saturday, June 5, 2021 @ 11:00am

If Deschutes County’s COVID-19 risk levels are Low, Moderate or High, Summit will celebrate outside in our school stadium. If county metrics are in Extreme, we will celebrate with an individual graduate ‘diploma walk’ inside, as we did last year.

County risk levels run on a two-week cycle. An announcement will be made during the week of May 17, after a review of that week's risk level, with final graduation plans (indoor or outdoor).

Having a more traditional, outdoor graduation event hinges on the health of our community. Deschutes County is currently in High Risk. Please join us in working hard to control the spread of COVID-19 and keep cases of COVID-19 at bay; wear a mask that fits well with no gaps, distance yourself from others, avoid crowds and poorly ventilated spaces, and get a vaccine when it's available to you.

More information will be made available to students and families directly from Summit as graduation approaches. Thank you in advance for your support and cooperation!

Congratulations to the class of 2021! We look forward to celebrating you and all you have accomplished!
