As stated in our last communication regarding senior events, COVID-19 restrictions on gatherings are continuing to be amended as the prevalence of the virus in our state continues to decline. As we had hoped, today Governor Whitmer announced further loosening of restrictions for large-scale activities that will allow us to invite more of your friends and family to the Lapeer High School Class of 2021 Commencement. Effective June 1, 2021, all outdoor gathering restrictions will be lifted.
What this means for Class of 2021 Events:
• The Class of 2021 Commencement will be held, as planned, outdoors at Fitzpatrick Field (CFI-West Campus) starting at 2 p.m. on June 6. Parents of seniors will be allowed six tickets. In the event of inclement weather, the commencement will be moved to the gym at Lapeer High School, with each graduate receiving two tickets. The event will be live-streamed on the District’s YouTube Channel (YouTube.com/LapeerSchools)
• After consultation with the Lapeer City Police Department, we have determined that traditional Swingout may now return to downtown Lapeer for the Class of 2021 on Thursday, June 3. Seniors will line up on Nepessing Street just east of Saginaw starting at 5 p.m. Seniors will parade through downtown starting at 6 p.m.
• All other senior events will remain as previously planned and scheduled.
Thank you so much for your patience. We are super excited to be able to honor the entire Class of 2021 together and to return to one of the District’s unique traditions.
