The San Angelo Independent School District announced Tuesday its 2021 graduation ceremonies celebrating Central and Lake View high schools' students are scheduled to be held in-person.
The ceremonies will be held:
- Central High School - 9 a.m. Saturday, May 29, 2021, at San Angelo Stadium
- Lake View High School - 9 a.m. Saturday, May 29, 2021, at Lake View Stadium.
All ceremonies will be ticketed events. For both schools, each graduate will receive 10 tickets. Information about securing tickets will be provided in a separate communication from the students’ campus.
The SAISD said in a press release that after thoughtful consideration, it opted for outdoor ceremonies for Central and Lake View in light of the continued uncertainty of large indoor gatherings and restrictions, and to provide an opportunity to increase attendance for the ceremonies in a safer environment.
Morning times were selected for safety reasons as well, since summer morning average temperatures are cooler than evenings.
All ceremonies will be recorded and broadcast on Suddenlink Channel 4 in San Angelo and uploaded to the SAISD YouTube channel. The district is also reviewing opportunities to live-stream the ceremonies on the internet so family members and supporters may watch together in real-time from any location.
Additional details will be provided by the respective campus closer to the event. Great effort and planning are being invested into making this a special occasion for all graduates and their families, the district said.
