2021 Upper Sandusky High School Senior Class


Dear Parents / Guardians and Seniors: 

USHS is excited to announce the Graduation and Commencement Ceremony plans for the Class of 2021!  We appreciate everyone’s patience and understanding as we work through the unique challenges this year has presented.  Attached you will find an outline of the particulars for the graduation season.  More details will be communicated to seniors as we approach the end of the school year.  



Date:  Friday, May 28th @ 7:00 pm 

Location:  High School Stadium   

Students report to Athletic Complex at 6:00pm


Due to health and safety regulations, students should limit guests to 6. All guests of the student will be required to sit in a grouping, wear masks and remain socially distanced from other families.   


Inclement Weather Commencement

Date: Friday, May 28th @ 7:00 pm 

Location: High School Gymnasium  

Students report to the Auditorium at 6:00 pm. 



If inclement weather is projected, the Class of 2021 graduation ceremony will move indoors to the Upper Sandusky High School gymnasium.  Due to health and safety restrictions, only parents or guardians will be permitted to attend the ceremony.  Each student will be given two (2) tickets.  Students with split families will receive up to four (4) tickets. 


We realize the importance of this event and want each student to have the support of their entire family, so we will make every effort to hold the ceremony in the stadium.  Please keep in mind however, there is a lot that goes into the preparation of this momentous event, therefore the decision of the location will be made at 3:00 pm on Thursday, May 27th.   


Tickets will be distributed at rehearsal on Friday morning.  

If the ceremony is held in the gymnasium, it will be live streamed / video-taped.  

Due to health and safety restrictions, neither the choir nor the band will perform at the indoor ceremony.  




  • Attendance at rehearsal is REQUIRED OF ALL WHO EXPECT TO PARTICPATE IN THE GRADUATION CEREMONY.   Please notify the main office as soon as possible if you do not plan on participating in graduation.  
  • Graduates should report to the high school gym at 8:30 am on Friday, May 28th.  The busses to the elementary schools will leave the high school at 8:40.  GRADUATES SHOULD BRING THEIR CAP & GOWN.  
  • Rehearsal will take place immediately following the graduate parade at the elementary schools on Friday, May 28th.   
  • The senior group photo will be taken after graduation practice.   CAP & GOWN ARE REQUIRED FOR THE PHOTO.    Order forms will be available in the office the week prior to the photo.
