East Senior Graduation Ceremony Information

Dear East CLC Seniors and Families,

Although we are disappointed we cannot celebrate your high school graduation in the traditional full class ceremony, we ask that you embrace the special senior events that are being planned for you.

Commencement teams composed of students, administrators and district support staff have been working to provide an in-person graduation for each of you in small groups.  The APS family, community members, your parents, and your peers admire and support your efforts during this extraordinary time. This graduation ceremony is to honor your accomplishments. East’s graduation will be on June 1 and 2 at East CLC.

The Summit County Health Department has approved in-person graduation ceremonies provided we comply with the guidelines listed below your personal graduation date and arrival time.  Continue to check your email for updates and please share this information with your parents.  

Your Graduation Date, Time, and Parking Area has been emailed to you. In addition, we are mailing it out and a copy of the information will be given to you when you pick up your cap and gown on May 29, 2020 during your scheduled pick-up time at East.

Graduation Commencement Guidelines:  

  • You must be on-time for your graduation. No exceptions. We cannot alter the schedule.

  • Each senior may bring up to four family members.  Four family members include infants.

  • Wear your cap and gown. They are not to be decorated or altered.

  • Please arrive at your designated time and stay in the parking lot for check in.  Must park in your designated A,B, or C parking area. Only two cars per graduate.

  • Once out of the car, every senior and their guests must wear face masks/face covering.  Please provide your own. Seniors will be able to remove their masks during the video portion of walking the stage and for photography.  

  • Practice social distancing and do not congregate around other families who may be on site the same time you are.  

  • Staff will personally guide each family through the series of graduation stations.  

  • The ceremony will be live-streamed via YouTube. Be sure to send the link and your time slot to family and friends!  Watch your email for updates. Check East’s website at akronschools.com for the links.

  • A professional photographer has been hired and a 5x7 photograph will be mailed to you. 

  • Upon exiting the graduation ceremony, please depart the parking lot quickly so that we may move the next group through in a timely manner. 

  • Families will be in front of the stage to take pictures and videos of their graduate as they cross the stage.

We hope that you plan to be a part of commencement, and we look forward to celebrating our Class of 2020!
