Graduation Class of 2021

Good afternoon,

This email is regarding graduation for your son or daughter. Graduation for the Class of 2021 will be held June 5, 2021, at Westville High School track and field. Each senior will be given tickets from the senior class sponsor, Mrs. Kovach, next week. Each senior will be permitted eight tickets onlyIf a senior does not use all eight tickets, he or she may choose to give their tickets to another senior to use for their guests. All guests must have a ticket to enter graduation and provide their own chair for seating purposes.

Seating will be first come, first serve and it is seat yourself on the inside soccer field. Absolutely no guests will be permitted to sit on the track, as graduates will be seated there and walk around the track at the conclusion of the ceremony. You must provide your own seat. Chairs will not be provided. Handicapped seating will be available on the far left side of the track (the high jump area), but again, chairs will not be provided.

All vehicles must park in the front parking lot and patrons will enter through the gated area to the inside of the track. Absolutely no one will be allowed to park in the back of the school due to the safety of graduates and staff entering and exiting the building. If you have someone that needs assistance with walking and will need a ride on the golf cart to the handicapped seating area, please email Mrs. Kovach, Senior Class Sponsor no later than June 2, 2021, with the first and last name of the guest who will need a ride on the golf cart.

The gate will open at 11:15 a.m. and the ceremony will begin at 12 p.m. All guests will be seated on the inside of the track. Graduates will be seated in front of the stage and a screen will be provided for all guests to view the ceremony.

As a reminder you can contact Mrs. Kovach to purchase a "Shout Out" message for your senior to go in our commencement program as a surprise for as little as $10. Email her at for more information.

Seniors will have their traditional "Walk Through Celebration" starting in the elementary and then around the track on May 26 starting at 8:30 a.m. All guests are welcome to attend. Guests should park in the front of the school and must stand along the outside of the fence along the track. All guests must wear a mask and socially distance themselves. No guests will be permitted to enter the school.

Finally, seniors will have graduation practice on Thursday, May 27, at 10 a.m. This practice is essential that they attend as we will go over the graduation ceremony thoroughly and they will receive important information. Seniors will also clean their lockers out after practice.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out. I am VERY excited to celebrate our seniors! I look forward to seeing you all soon!
