Livingston High School Academy will hold its graduation on Friday, May 29th at 7:30 pm at Lion Stadium.
Livingston High School will hold its graduation ceremony on Saturday, May 30th at 9:00 am at Lion Stadium. (The district has alternate plans in case of a rainout.)
This will be a closed ceremony and require a ticket for admittance.
Further information about this ceremony to comply with the requirements:
The district has capped the total number of participants due to the size of Livingston High School Class of 2020 (212 students) to comply with social distancing both during the event and during entry and exit of the facility. This event will be closed to the public and only the participants and families with their ticket may enter.
Prior to attending the ceremony, participating students and attending family members shall be screened (via questioning) during the ticket pick up time that Dr. Drake will explain for any new or worsening symptoms of possible COVID-19. Those found with any of these signs or symptoms must be excluded from the ceremony.
Graduates will only be brought together for one event as rehearsals are not permitted. This makes it crucial to receive your information from Dr. Drake for both students and their families.
Six foot or more spacing will be maintained between all participants except members from the same household (five individuals or fewer may sit together from the same household) but must stay 6 feet away from any other family group at all times. We will only have the capacity for a family group of five to receive tickets. This places our facility at capacity and meets the standard set by guidance. The district is contracting with a professional vendor to stream the ceremony for those that can not attend or are not attending because they are in an at-risk group. Seating will be randomly assigned and information from you will be needed to ensure that we have working numbers to contact you as well as meet any needs of those with disabilities in the family group.
Hand sanitizer or wash stations will be available at all facility entrances.
School personnel and law enforcement will be limited to the minimum number needed to logistically support the ceremony.
Diplomas can not be handed from one person to another unless gloves are worn to distribute the diplomas. Students will handle their diploma from a table on stage and proceed to their picture with a school official.
We ask that you consider wearing non-medical grade face masks but this is not a mandate. The district has ordered the students' masks if they so choose to wear them except when photos are taken. The district will also purchase your student an 8x10 photo so we ask that no one from the family approaches the rail in the stands to take pictures.
We have numerous other ways to limit documents and awards that will be outlined in the video to come.
School personnel and law enforcement will be stationed to ensure we are in compliance with the order and limit the congregation of family groups. There will be information coming to ensure the organization prevents the congregation of family groups outside of the ceremony as well. This includes entering and exiting the facility.
It is a privilege for students to be a part of the graduation ceremony and it is not mandatory for them to participate.
