Class of 2021 Celebrations

Commencement

  • This spring graduates will have three options:

    1. Graduates may participate in one of two outdoor ceremonies on Bennett Field on Saturday 5/29.
    Gold Commencement (A-L) 10:00am
    Blue Commencement (M-Z) 1:00pm
    1. Graduates may pick-up their diploma on Friday 5/28 in the SOUTH CAMPUS circle drive from 12 – 3pm.
    2. Graduates may have their diploma mailed to their home.

    Graduates will be asked to select one of these options via a survey that they will receive on Monday May 3rd from LTHS.

    No cut-off shirts, midriffs, flip-flops, jeans or athletic apparel, please. Due to the ceremony being held on a turf field, young ladies may prefer to wear a flat or wedge-style shoe.

    A professional photographer will take a picture of each graduate as their diploma is received. You may purchase a copy of that picture when contacted by the photographer. We ask that no one come to the stage area to take pictures during the ceremony; balloons will not be allowed at the ceremony. Graduating seniors MUST report 1 hour before their ceremony to the South Campus Fieldhouse. Seniors who arrive late may not be permitted to participate in the ceremony. The Bennett Field gates will open for guests 1 hour prior to each ceremony. Handicapped seating will be available on the field. No indoor viewing options will be available. A live video feed will be provided by LTTV via www.LTHS.net.

    ***Inclement Weather Contingencies***

    Because an indoor option is not possible due to current CDC and IDPH COVID-19 guidance, LTHS will carefully monitor the weekend weather forecast. In the event that one or both planned ceremonies need to be moved, LTHS may shift either/both ceremonies to any of the following: (announced via www.LTHS.net): 

    • Saturday, May 29th at 4:00pm, 7:00pm
    • Sunday, May 30th at 10:00am, 1:00pm, 4:00pm

    If it becomes impossible to host either event outdoor at any of these times, LTHS may invite graduates only to a socially-distanced event in the South Campus Fieldhouse and invite family and guests to view remotely.
