Graduation Ceremony Information
Class of 2022 Graduation
We are excited to announce the dates for the Kent School District Class of 2022 Graduation Ceremonies. As of December 2021, our comprehensive high school graduations for Seniors who have met all graduation requirements will be held at the ShoWare Center on June 11, 2022. The dates, times, and locations for our various Kent School District graduations are as follows:
Comprehensive High Schools June 11, 2022, at the ShoWare
- Kent-Meridian High School & iGrad 8:30 AM
- Kentlake High School 12:30 PM
- Kentridge High School 4:30 PM
- Kentwood High School 8:00 PM
- Kent Laboratory Academy June 9, 2022, at 7 PM at Kent-Meridian High School Gym
- Transition Outreach Program June 16, 2022, at 6:30 PM in the Kent-Meridian High School PAC
To ensure we follow state and county social distancing guidelines, we are expected to adhere to the ShoWare facility requirements of admitting only those into ShoWare who are fully vaccinated or have proof of a negative COVID test (https://www.accessoshowarecenter.com/p/plan-your-visit/arena-entry-requirements). We are also very excited to announce that we have secured an outside company to live stream all graduations. This way, family, and friends, anywhere, can still be a part of the big day at the same time as those able to attend in person. As graduation approaches, schools will provide additional information and updates regarding COVID procedures.
We recognize that our Seniors have lost out on many traditional high school events. We are excited to announce that KSD high schools will be holding Proms this spring. To participate in a KSD high school Prom, all students and guests must follow the DOH guidelines and require proof of COVID vaccination or a negative COVID test prior to attending the dance. Everyone must wear a mask. At this time, there will be no exceptions to these expectations.
We look forward to partnering with our student leaders to discuss how we can make this graduation and Prom memorable for the Class of 2022.
