Class of 2021

Wednesday, May 26, 2021

Dear MASD Parent/Guardian:

Commencement for the Class of 2021 will be held on Tuesday, June 1 at 6:00 p.m. on War Memorial Field. We hope that the weather forecast of 74° and no rain holds true over the coming days, but in the event of severe weather, we would postpone the ceremony to the following day. Since Governor Wolf’s restrictions on indoor and outdoor capacity limits will be lifted on May 31, we are able to open graduation to the public. Each graduate will receive 10 tickets which will guarantee a seat in the bleachers on the home side of the field for family members. Any other attendees without tickets are welcome to sit on the visitor side bleachers or stand along the fence to watch the ceremony.

The Order of the Secretary of the Pennsylvania Department of Health Requiring Universal Face Coverings remains in effect until 70% of adults in Pennsylvania are fully vaccinated. As per the order, “all individuals age 2 or older, whether indoors or outdoors, must wear a face covering that covers their nose and mouth while at school and at school-sponsored events, and when they are traveling in school buses and school-provided transportation.”

COVID-19 Mitigation Orders and Gathering Limits

Immediately following graduation, a parade is planned through Royalton, Middletown, and Lower Swatara Township. The parade route is different than last year and begins at War Memorial Field and ends at Dayspring Ministries (see map below). Last year’s parade was a huge success and very well-received by the community. We hope to have even more people outside as the fire companies and police cars lead our graduates in their parents’ vehicles through our municipalities. We estimate that the parade will begin by 7:30 p.m. and conclude by 8:30 p.m. Please plan to join us as we congratulate the Class of 2021 and send them off into the world of post-secondary education, work and the military.

With Blue Raider Pride,

Dr. Lori A. Suski
Superintendent of Schools
