2021 Graduation Update

Posted April 27, 2021

Dear Parents of Manual Seniors,

As we communicated previously, the DPS Senior Leadership team made the decision to host outdoor, in-person graduation ceremonies for the class of 2021.  This decision was made to ensure limited exposure to COVID-19 for our students, staff, families and community members.  

Earlier this week, DPS communicated new limits on the number of guests schools can have  at all graduations.  Each graduating senior will now be allowed to invite four (4) guests to our 2021 Graduation Ceremony!  Please note that children two and under do not count towards the guest count.  

Additionally, please be aware of the following important information regarding the 2021 Manual High School Graduation Ceremony:

  • The ceremony will take place outdoors at the Manual High School Football Stadium  
  • The ceremony is scheduled for Saturday, May 22 at 10:30am
  • Each graduating senior will be allowed to invite four (4) guests to the ceremony
  • Guests will be required to have a ticket for entry into the ceremony
  • Tickets will be given to each senior at the time of Senior Checkout
  • Lost or stolen tickets will not be replaced, and seniors are responsible for distribution of their two tickets
  • The gate located to the southwest of the football stadium will be open at 9:30am for guests to begin entering
  • There will be open seating for all admitted guests
  • There will be live streaming of the event available online for those who cannot attend in person
