Here Are the Details on Waterloo Public Schools ’21 Grad Ceremony
Here we are facing the end of another unique school year. While COVID-19 cases in Iowa have been in a freefall, the pandemic isn't done just yet. As a result, graduation in 2021 will look different than 2020, but not quite what you'd call normal. Here is how graduation 2021 will look.
2021 will be a mix of in-person & virtual to ensure everyone can attend/watch their grad
East & West graduations will be held at Young Arena in downtown Waterloo (125 Commercial Street)
Expo’s graduation will be held at Expo High School.
Each graduate will be given four wristbands. A graduate’s guests will be asked to sit together and socially distance between groups of guests as much as possible.
If you do NOT need all four wristbands, please return unused bands to your school’s office for redistribution via a lottery drawing to those who request additional guests.
While the arena’s skating rink ice will be fully covered, graduates should be aware of potentially cooler temperatures on the floor of the arena as they select attire for the ceremony.
We will be livestreaming the ceremonies on our Waterloo Community School District Facebook page, where the videos will be permanently located to view and share.
You will get additional information from your school, including where to park.
- Waterloo Expo - Monday, May 24 at 6pm
- Waterloo West - Tuesday, May 25 at 6pm
- Waterloo East - Thursday, May 27 at 6pm
As mentioned above, there will also be a virtual option or each school. The links to the livestream for each school are below. Once the live stream ends, you can still watch the recording using the same links.
