Review Info Regarding Graduation

Class of 2021June 1, 2021

Dear Students and Families in the Class of 2021,

The Graduation Ceremony for the Class of 2021 is approaching! Celebrations for our seniors continue, specifically the PRHS Senior Breakfast on Friday, June 4th, our seniors’ last day of school. Seniors will gather at our stadium and enjoy a bagged breakfast in the bleachers provided by our PTO. Graduation for the Class of 2021 is Friday, June 11th and we are eagerly awaiting the opportunity to celebrate every graduate in the Class of 2021! This ceremony is a recognition of each student’s personal efforts, persistence, achievements, and growth. As our vision shows, graduation is also a time to reflect on how parents, families, staff, and the community have helped each graduate reach his or her goals.

As a result of the easing of restrictions around gathering limits and mask-wearing, along with the decrease in cases and improving conditions, the following guidelines will be in place for the graduation ceremony:


● Graduates will be asked to wear their masks indoors in the high school auditorium and/or cafeteria while preparing for the procession.

● Graduates will have the option to wear or not wear their masks outdoors as they transition to the stadium and throughout the full ceremony.

●  We will space the graduates out during the procession and have seats physically distanced on the field.


● Spectators will be asked to wear their masks to their seats and while moving around or using the restrooms.

● Spectators can remove their masks while seated with their families.

Each graduate will receive eight (8) tickets. If there is a need for additional tickets beyond eight, please contact Mrs. Kathy Morrow ( or 724-625-4444, ext. 1600) in the high school office.



We are excited to announce Senior Selfie-Stations across the district at each of our buildings from Friday, June 11 - Sunday, June 13th. The staff and PTO at each of our schools are thrilled to welcome the Class of 2021 and their families to visit the schools and take the time to share and make memories at the designated Selfie Stations. STA will have a bus parked at our stadium from Wednesday, June 9 through Sunday, June 13. Be sure to include the high school campus on your tour of Pine-Richland and capture a few memories as you celebrate your Graduation!    


Mrs. Nancy Bowman, Principal

Mr. Rob Puskas, Assistant Principal
