Q – Can we have an outdoor grad ceremony? What about several small ceremonies?
A – Unfortunately, we can’t. Current Public Health guidelines have designated our region as a “Red Zone”,
which means outdoor gatherings like graduation ceremonies are limited to 100 people where physical
distancing is possible (each person would have to be 2 metres apart). We have close to 230 graduates
this year and when you factor in family and staff involvement, our numbers are far too large to adhere to
Public Health guidelines. Some people also asked whether multiple smaller outdoor ceremonies would be
possible. We would have to run multiple ceremonies over several days to accommodate students,
families and staff. Logistically, this is not possible. All WCDSB secondary schools and the board decided
that an outdoor ceremony is not possible this school year. It may seem that this decision was made too
early, but given the time required to plan and organize a graduation ceremony, whether it’s a video or in
person, we had to make a decision in order to prepare.
Q – Can we delay graduation until the fall?
A – All 5 WCDSB secondary schools have decided to recognize grads at the end of June and not in the
fall for several reasons. There is uncertainty as to whether or not the Region’s Public Health designation
will be different in the fall than what it is now. With so much uncertainty, it is difficult to plan a ceremony as
large as graduation. Many graduates will be unavailable to participate in a possible face-to-face ceremony
due to post-secondary plans (i.e. work, college, university).
Q – Will there be a drive thru ceremony?
A – We have discussed this idea and we are currently waiting to hear from the school board and Public
Health whether or not this is possible.
Q – Could we have a Teams Meeting so the graduates can hear their names called?
A – We will not be hosting any live meetings or videos as part of the ceremony — everything will be
pre-recorded. Last year’s graduation video included grad photos of students along with the students’
names, the names were not read aloud; however, we will consider reading each graduate’s name aloud.
Keep in mind that we also have to take into account the length of the video.
Q – Will there be a grad care package?
A – Yes. All grads will receive a tassel with a 2021 charm attached to it along with a rosary and a copy of
the New Testament. You also have the option of ordering a gown and cap — click here for details.
Q – Will there be a prom?
A – We do not organize or run a school prom.
Q – Will there be a grad yearbook or yearbook-like inclusions (e.g. Most Likely To) in the grad
video?
A – There will not be a grad yearbook or a school yearbook this school year. We will try to reserve part of
the video for yearbook-like inclusions and will seek further student input on this.
