Leesville released updates about caps and gowns, honor stoles, and graduation this past week. Since students may return to campus on Plan A following spring break, the dates below are subject to change.
Caps and Gowns
Jostens will deliver caps and gowns to school on April 8. Cohort B can come to school from 2-3 PM to pick up their gowns. Cohort A, Cohort C, and VA students can pick up theirs from 3-5 PM. These days are a change from what was previously scheduled.
If you have not ordered your cap and gown yet, you should do so as soon as possible. Students can order here.
Honor Stoles and Club Cords
Your cumulative weighted GPA from your first semester freshman year through the end of first semester senior year determines your honor stole.
Jostens delivers honor stoles with caps and gowns on April 8. Mrs. Dinkenor knows which stole you earned and will give you the correct one at delivery. If you have any questions about your GPA, please email Mrs. Dinkenor at email@example.com or your individual counselor.
Leesville’s honor societies have honor cords that you can wear to graduation. To find out about them, you should contact individual club advisors and officers.
Wake County released an update on March 15, announcing that they are no longer planning for 2021 graduation ceremonies at venues like Raleigh Convention Center. Instead, Leesville will host a graduation ceremony on campus this spring.
In most schools, WCPSS plans on holding graduation ceremonies in the school stadium. The stadium’s maximum capacity for the ceremony is 30%. High schools are establishing dates, times, logistics, and instructions to share with seniors and their families no later than April 9.
Leesville is still navigating the details of graduation. “Please know that as soon as we know more, we will pass that information on to you,” said Ian Solomon, LRHS principal, in a principal’s message.
Seniors won’t have a traditional prom this spring, either. High schools across the county will host a different event to safely celebrate graduating seniors and help to create memories that are an important part of the high school experience.
While Leesville will need time to develop a new plan for graduation and prom, there is no doubt that these events will still be important and celebratory for seniors and the Leesville community.
