CRLS is so excited to celebrate our graduating seniors in-person this year!

An in-person graduation ceremony will be on June 10th from 3 to 8 PM at Danehy Park. Following the in-person ceremony there will be a virtual graduation broadcast on CEATV 98/99 and streamed on the CRLS website.

To help us plan for the in-person graduation ceremony, please complete this rsvp form. Note - only graduates and the guests they register through this form will be permitted to attend the in-person ceremony.

To keep everyone safe during the ongoing pandemic, this year's graduation will be a little different from previous years. Graduating seniors can be escorted to the stage by up to three guests and will be allowed to invite an additional two guests to view them crossing the stage from the audience. Graduating seniors will cross the stage, receive their diploma from a table, while their family views in front of the stage, then rejoin their family for a photo with Mayor Sumbul Siddiqui, and then another photo with their guests before walking on and exiting the ceremony.

Graduating seniors will graduate according to the schedule below. The times listed below are the arrival times for students and their guests, students will cross the stage approximately 30 minutes after their arrival time. After a student crosses the stage they will be dismissed to continue their celebration elsewhere so that the next group of seniors and their guests can arrive and graduate at Danehy Park safely without overcrowding.

3PM: LC C - Finn’s Students
3:30PM: LC R - Tubinis’ Students
4PM: LC C - Richard’s Students
4:30PM: LC R - Roldan’s Students

We will send additional details regarding parking and specific arrival locations for graduates and their guests in a few weeks.

There will also be a virtual graduation ceremony aired the evening of June 10. Graduates in the class will have their name announced and a photo displayed during the pre-recorded ceremony. The ceremony will feature musical selections, speeches, and presentations of the CRLS Faculty of Distinction Awards. Commencement will be streamed on the CRLS website and broadcast on CEATV 98/99.

Senior Materials Collection & Final Plan Forms

Seniors will need to return all borrowed materials including textbooks, library books, athletic uniforms & equipment prior to commencement. Additionally, in order to receive their cap and gown they will need to will need to update their Naviance accounts with all outcomes and final plans as well as complete their “Senior Final Plans Survey” and submit it to their guidance counselor.

Seniors do not need to return their Chromebooks. ICTS will disconnect them from the CPS network after graduation. Students who do not want to keep their Chromebook can return it when they pick up their cap and gown so that it can support other students and/or be properly recycled.

Yearbooks will be provided at no cost to seniors. Distribution details will be provided later this spring.
