Welcome to the official guide to commencement for FranU graduates and their guests.
All Spring spring 2021 Graduates are invited to attend your Graduation Ceremony on Saturday, May 15, 2021, which will take place in a location to be determined. We do not anticipate that your school’s ceremony will last longer than 1 hour.
The number of guests allowed will be determined once the location is finalized.
Please note that wearing masks and maintaining a 6 foot distance from other family groups are REQUIRED for all participants, including guests! However, you may remove your masks during individual and family pictures.
Regardless of format, graduation is an academic ceremony of dignity. Your families are encouraged to recognize you when you receive your diplomas. Their enthusiasm and excitement is warranted; however, the use of air horns or other artificial noisemakers is inappropriate.
Guests may bring cameras; however, students are encouraged to give all cameras, phones and other devices to your family members or loved ones. Please note that students are not allowed to have anything in their hands or over their gown, e.g., a purse.
Lifetouch Photography will be in attendance to take professional pictures of each graduate.
