Dear Seniors and Parents,
We appreciate the feedback you gave us regarding what you would like to see for graduation this year. We were working with Maverik Center on hosting our graduation ceremony off campus with two other Jordan District high schools. As the county is doing Covid testing in the Maverik Center parking lots, our ability to hold commencement exercises was dependent on how much of their parking we could use. Unfortunately, Covid testing is on the increase in the county, and Maverik Center cannot offer us the parking we would need to accommodate enough graduates and parents, so they had to cancel our reservation.
Due to this circumstance, we are planning on the second most popular option, and that is, to hold our commencement exercises outdoors in our West Jordan High Stadium. We are planning on the commencement exercises to begin at 9:00am on Thursday, June 3rd. If there is inclement weather, the ceremony will be moved indoors to our gym with an overflow in the school auditorium.
Additionally, please plan to join us for our last graduation parade following the ceremony. We are currently working with the City of West Jordan and the WJPD in finalizing a start time. Additional information to follow relating to the start time, and the route, for the parade.
We will do our best to accommodate as many parents/guardians and family that we can, but please know that we are still constrained by State Guidelines in our campus venues. As of now, we are anticipating being able to accommodate 4 tickets per graduate (the graduate plus 4 guests).
Parking is also limited, so we will be asking families to carpool. We may even need families to drop off graduates at their earlier time before graduation starts, so that graduates do not fill the parking lot before family members arrive.
As we have more information, we will be passing it along to you. Please be patient as we work through accommodating such a large event in our limited facilities.
Each of your Jaguar Seniors is important to us, and we want to give them a positive and memorable graduation ceremony as we recognize this great accomplishment.
Mark your calendars for our WJH graduation ceremony on June 3rd, 2021 at the West Jordan High Stadium starting at 9:00am.
