Graduation Ceremonies Class of 2020

Graduation Ceremonies Class of 2020
Posted on 07/02/2020
Graduation Ceremonies at Children's Mercy ParkWe were hopeful that the Class of 2020 would have the opportunity to participate in our district’s traditional ceremony at Municipal Auditorium on Sunday, July 19. However, as the pandemic has progressed, restrictions at Municipal Auditorium will not allow for our graduates to celebrate their accomplishments with their families and the entire high school class.

It has always been our goal to host a ceremony for all graduates and families, and in order to do that, we moved our commencement ceremonies to Children’s Mercy Park on Saturday, July 18.

Children’s Mercy Park
1 Sporting Way
Kansas City, KS 66111

Blue Springs South High School
Doors Open at 1 p.m.
Ceremony Begins at 2 p.m.

Blue Springs High School
Doors Open at 3:30 p.m.
Ceremony Begins at 4:30 p.m.

Our graduation ceremonies will take place rain or shine. Family seating is covered, but graduate seating on the field is not. Graduates will not be allowed to wear high heels. Programs will not be distributed to guests per facility guidelines to reduce large numbers of people gathering together in one area. The concessions stands will be open so that families can purchase water, soda, or snacks. Masks will be required when moving around the park.

To observe social distancing, families will receive up to six tickets. Please expect additional information about tickets early next week.

Thank you for your flexibility as we work to honor the Class of 2020.

Sincerely,
Blue Springs School District
