Graduation & Moving Up Ceremonies: Update 6/21/21

This notice provides updated information about the 5th grade Moving Up, 8th grade Moving Up, and 12th grade Commencement Ceremonies.  Please review this information carefully for details about tickets, parking, and plans for these ceremonies in the event of rain. 

The Moving Up Ceremonies and HHS Commencement Ceremony will be held outdoors on the baseball field at Harrison High School.  In the event of inclement weather, the ceremonies will be moved indoors to the Harrison Performing Arts Center.  All events will be livestreamed and available through the Harrison Central School District website. 

As stated in the email sent to families on Friday, June 17, 2021, the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) issued updated guidance on graduations and moving up ceremonies.  Year-end academic ceremonies no longer require social distancing, health screening, or contact tracing.  Proof of COVID-19 vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test result are no longer required for students, parents or guests.  However, masks are still required for all unvaccinated individuals, including all 5th graders and unvaccinated 8th and 12th graders. We have modified our plans based on the new guidance.
