We are excited to announce our plans to celebrate the Class of 2021. While we know this has been a difficult year for our seniors, we are so proud of the way they have persevered. Every difficult decision we have made has had the safety of our students at the forefront. 

As Governor DeWine and the Ohio Department of Health have begun to increase attendance at events, we have been in close contact with our partners regarding graduation and prom. Additionally, our teams have been working hard to shift our plans to an in-person Parade of Graduates event that would be safe for our seniors and the students and staff at the elementary schools.

While we are still working out many details, we are pleased to confirm the following events to celebrate the Class of 2021:

  • Prom will be held as scheduled with the following protocols: 
     
    • In order to meet capacity restrictions and keep our students as safe as possible, prom will be limited to seniors only with no outside guests. We know that this will be a disappointment for some students. However, one of the reasons we have been able to remain in-person for so long is by not allowing visitors in our buildings. With this in mind, we will follow the same protocols for prom.
    • Lakota East’s prom will be held on May 8th at the Sharonville Convention Center.
    • We will not hold after prom this year.
    • More details about ticket sales will be shared by the prom committee.

  • Parade of Graduates will be held in person this year with the following protocols:
    • The parade will take place outside at each elementary school.
    • For safety reasons, seniors who choose to participate must ride Lakota’s buses to the event.
    • Parents will be permitted to attend the parade, but must remain in the designated area at each school.

The parade will take place on May 17th at 10 a.m., with May 18 serving as the rain date.

    • More information, along with an electronic signup form, will be shared by each school.

  • Graduation will be held at Xavier University’s Cintas Center. 
    • At this time, indoor venues must follow capacity restrictions, which means our families will be required to have tickets to attend. More information about registering for tickets and the number allotted per family will be shared in the coming weeks as we receive guidance from Cintas.
    • Graduation will be live streamed, courtesy of Cintas Center, for those who cannot attend.
    • Lakota East’s graduation will take place on May 19th.

  • Senior Awards Ceremony will be held in our Main Gymnasium
    • In order to meet capacity restrictions and keep our students as safe as possible, we will host only Senior Awards this Spring; 
    • Senior Awards Ceremony will be held on May 4th at 6pm
 We will continue to work through the logistics and release more details as they are available.
