Graduation 2020 Information

Dear Class of 2020 and Families,

As you all know, we are living in a most unusual time which has caused us to face some real challenges. To that end, we have been given clear direction from Governor DeWine and the Portage County Health Department that we will not be able to host a typical face-to-face graduation ceremony.  However, the Rootstown administrative team and the Senior Class advisors have developed a plan to allow each of you to have a personalized graduation ceremony.

We are asking that each of you sign up for a time slot on one of the following dates: 5/20 from 4-9 , 5/21 from 4-9 p.m., or 5/24 from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Please sign up by visiting the link: https://bit.ly/RHS2020Graduation. Only available times will show up. This is on a first come, first served basis so you are encouraged to sign up now, but no later than May 15th!

On the day of your assigned time, please park in the front parking lot, exit your vehicle and head towards the main entrance.  An RHS staff member will greet you at the spirit rock for you to sign; please bring your own Sharpie. From there, you will be escorted and directed by an RHS staff member through the rest of the process. Each of you should be dressed in your cap and gown and be accompanied by up to six of your family members to stay in accordance with the guidelines set forth by the Ohio Department of Health. You will enter the gymnasium and your family will be seated while you proceed to a designated place where you will be announced, walk across the gymnasium and receive your diploma cover (actual diplomas will be picked up at a later date). We will have a videographer and photographer present videotaping each part and taking pictures of each graduate.  After photos are taken, a staff member will help you exit the building through the Board of Education office. The video of each graduate will be put into a presentation that will be aired on June 7th at 2:30 p.m. along with the senior slideshow on the district’s YouTube channel and Facebook page. If you have not yet sent photos for the slideshow, please use the following link to do so.  bit.ly/RHS20slideshow


The senior class would also like to present you with a gift, so please fill out the following form by May 13th. bit.ly/RHSSrShirts

Please note that there are other special senior events that are still occurring, now virtually.  Senior Awards will be aired on May 17th at 6 p.m. on the district’s YouTube channel and Facebook page.  In addition, Virtual Senior Signing Day will be aired on May 29th at 6 p.m. on the district’s YouTube channel and Facebook page. It is our hope that you tune in and enjoy these meaningful and fun ways to honor the Class of 2020.
