Wylie ISD will hold all three of its 2021 graduation ceremonies at Wylie Stadium. Achieve Academy will lead off the celebrations on Thursday, May 27, 2021. Wylie East will be Friday, May 28, 2021, and Wylie High will be on Saturday, May 29, 2021. All three ceremonies will take place in the evening, with exact times and other details released as soon as they are final.
“We are announcing the plans now so families can start planning for this important event,” said Dr. David Vinson, Wylie ISD Superintendent. “There are still some details to work out, but having graduation at our stadium gives our schools the ability to plan the graduation they want to have, in a safe environment, and with all the pomp and circumstance they deserve…the Wylie Way.”
The district held all three of its 2020 graduation ceremonies at Wylie Stadium to accommodate more families while complying with state and local COVID-19 restrictions. These restrictions continually changed, leaving many districts scrambling to find suitable venues.
“Last year’s graduations were a big success because we listened to our students and families,” said Ian Halperin, Executive Director of Communications and Community Relations. “We had three amazing ceremonies and before we even left the stadium, parents and staff were already asking if we could have the 2021 ceremonies there.”
Wylie ISD will continue to follow all guidelines with regards to COVID-19 safety and social distancing. Decisions on ticketing and attendance protocols will be made closer to the ceremonies with the goal to allow as many family members to safely attend as possible.
