CLASS OF 2021
2GETHER AS 1
Class of 2021 Parents and Students:
This has definitely been a year of uncertainties; however, one thing has proven to be true and that is the ability to pivot "2GETHER AS 1" in order to meet the needs of our students.
After exploring all options to ensure our 2021 seniors have an optimal graduation experience, the KSD team has made the decision to move forward the originally scheduled graduation date as the forecast is predicting rain and thunderstorms for both Saturday and Sunday (the original rain date).
The KHS Class of 2021 Graduation Ceremony will now be held on Friday, May 7, 2021 at 6:00 PM (the forecast shows sunny with a few clouds) in the E.L. Lyons Memorial Stadium. Graduates will need to arrive by 5:15 PM. The ceremony will be live streamed for those who are not able to attend/prefer to attend virtually. Graduation tickets, ceremony instructions, and a map will be provided in the Senior Checkout Packet that students receive tomorrow (Wednesday, 5/5).
The good news is, in following St. Louis County revised guidelines for indoor activities, we are able to move the After Grad Party (AGP) indoors to the KHS Athletic Complex. The AGP will immediately follow the ceremony on Friday, May 7th and be held from 8:30 PM - 12:30 AM.
We apologize for any inconvenience this causes families and appreciate your flexibility in making these changes.
