2021 Graduation Dates

Frederick County Public Schools is planning in-person graduation ceremonies for the Class of 2021 that will take place outdoors at home stadiums.

COVID-19 health and safety protocols will be observed for the ceremony. Seating will be physically distanced with hand sanitizing stations available throughout the stadiums. All graduates will be permitted to invite two guests. Due to the limited number of guests, each graduation will be livestreamed so that friends, family and community can view the ceremony in real time. The recordings will also be available on the individual school’s and FCPS YouTube channels. Links to each livestream will be provided prior to the event.

Most ceremonies have been scheduled for the morning in the hopes of avoiding high afternoon temperatures and inclement weather. Plans for inclement weather are under development and will be shared at a later date.
