Important Information about Caps and Gowns: ***Please note: Students planning to pick up their caps and gowns on April 1st must have their account balance fully paid. Outstanding payment balances not paid in full by March 24, 2021 will not receive their Cap and Gown on the distribution date - Thursday, April 1st, 2021. All unpaid items will remain at Midwest Scholastic, and once paid will be delivered later in April.

With the easing of COVID restrictions by the Centers for Disease Control and the Rock County Health Department, we are pleased to share that tickets are no longer required to attend the ceremonies in person.
We will offer the following options for seating:
General Seating- This will be in the stands on the home and visitor sides of the field. Guests are asked to sit with family and socially distance.
Accommodated Seating- This will be on the track socially distanced and accessible to those with mobility or other health issues. Please call Parker at 743-5610 or call Craig at 743-5262 to reserve seats in this area.
Remote Viewing- We will provide a link to watch graduation remotely and access the video later.
Graduates and their guests are asked to wear masks when entering the stadium until seated and then again when departing. This is a safety precaution that will be taken during times of high concentration of guests in close proximity.
We will continue with Saturday, June 5th at Monterey as our plan in case of inclement weather.
We will continue to share updates as we get closer to graduation. We look forward to celebrating with you!
I am pleased to share that this week, the Board of Education gave the high schools approval to plan a face-to-face graduation ceremony with safety protocols! With this announcement, we are able to begin to make plans for what commencement will look like and what parameters and safety protocols will be in place. To help you, I am sharing some questions that I have already been asked and answers, based on what I know at this time.
When and where will commencement take place? Craig will hold its commencement on Thursday, June 3, at 7:00 p.m. at Monterey Stadium. In the event of inclement weather, commencement will be moved to Saturday, June 5, at 11:00 AM at Monterey Stadium. We will not move graduation indoors because we are unable to socially distance in a building with this number of graduates and guests.
Are seniors required to attend? Each year we have a segment of our student body who chooses not to attend commencement. Those who do not attend June 3rd will be able to pick up their diploma at Craig beginning on Monday, June 7.
I am excited about the opportunity to have a live commencement! I will continue to provide updates to you as we develop our plan. Please feel free to contact me if you have additional questions.
