Commencement Ceremony Information

Saturday, June 5, 2021 at 4:00pm—Commencement Ceremony

Our Commencement Plan has been accepted by the Jasper County Health Department. We have a plan and a back-up plan based on weather conditions described below. Please keep in mind that schools are still required to follow safety requirement from the Indiana Department of Health and the Jasper County Health Department.

Commencement Plan—Kankakee Valley High School Football Stadium

Each graduating student will receive four (4) tickets for an outside ceremony in our football stadium. Family members will be asked to socially distance from other families and masks be worn.

Each graduating student will also receive two (2) additional tickets if they have someone that would like to watch the commencement in the KVHS Main Gym on a large screen. Again, we ask that families socially distance from each other and masks be worn.

We do plan on live streaming the commencement for relatives who stay at home or live far away. That information will come out to the community when we get closer to the ceremony.


Back-up Plan—Poor Weather

If we have poor weather and cannot hold the Commencement Ceremony outside in our football stadium, then the original four (4) tickets will be moved inside to the KVHS Main Gym.

If this happens, the two (2) tickets that would have been used to watch on the large screen in the Main Gym will be Null and Void and those guests will not be able to attend.


These plans keep us within the requirements if we are not in Red on the state Covid map. If we are in Red at commencement time, we will work with the Jasper County Health Department for an alternate plan.


Tickets will be dispersed to graduating seniors starting on May 24 through May 27.
