Dr. Neal Brown III  

Dear Parents:

 Your son/daughter will soon be graduating with the Class of 2021.  The Leo Jr/Sr High School faculty and staff wish to express our gratitude for working with us and your child in achieving this milestone in his/her life.  We wish your son/daughter every success in the future!

 In order to keep you informed regarding graduation and other upcoming events, we would like to share with you the following information:

 1.         In order to graduate with a diploma from East Allen County Schools and Leo Jr./Sr. High School, a senior must have met all Indiana high school diploma requirements.  This means that along with passing all state and local class requirements, students must also pass ISTEP+ (both math and English/Language arts) or earn the alternative Pathway Diploma. All parents and students should be aware of their individual graduation status. Seniors who have not fulfilled minimum state graduation requirements by May 20, 2021, will not participate in the graduation ceremony on May 28, 2021.

 2.         Graduation will be at 7:00 P.M. on Friday, May 28, 2021.  Exercises will be held at the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum. Students should be at the War Memorial Coliseum no later than 6:15 P.M. to line up for the procession. Seating begins at 6:00 P.M.  While there is no charge for admission to the graduation, the War Memorial Coliseum does charge each car for parking ($6).  Please plan accordingly.

 3.     In the interest of time and in order to preserve the dignity of the graduation ceremony, we ask that recognition of all graduates be held until all seniors have received their diplomas. Traditionally, the graduation ceremony is a dignified ceremony and anything that interferes with the ceremony is disturbing to all. We ask that there be no yelling, whistling, or other activity that would draw undue attention to a particular graduate. We also ask that you encourage your son/daughter to conduct himself/herself in a manner that will not detract from the dignity of the ceremony.  The time for recognition is at the end of the reading of all graduates’ names. I know all of you are proud of your graduate, but individual recognition is out of order and you are asked to refrain from it. Parents, we really need your cooperation in this matter.  Please do your part to make sure we have an orderly graduation.

 4.     All financial obligations to the school are to be remedied by Friday May 21, 2021, at 3:15 P.M.  Books and iPads are to be turned in and all fees paid.

5.    Dual Credit and AP Final Exams

             May 14 & 17 – Math & Science

             May 18 & 19 – Social Studies, English, & Electives

6.   Thursday, May 20th Schedule

    5. Students return to the high school at 2:30 pm – Dismissal

 7.   A group picture of academic honor diploma recipients, valedictorian, and salutatorian will occur at graduation practice. Recipients will need their caps, gowns, dress shoes, and National Honor Society stoles.  Without the preceding items, you will not be part of the photo.  The group picture will hang in the south entrance of our school, above the display cases.

 8.   Male graduates are to wear dress shirts with ties as well as dress pants and dress shoes with their graduation gowns.  Ladies are to wear a dress or dress pants and dress shoes with their graduation gowns.

 9.   Parking is available in the War Memorial Coliseum parking lot at a charge of $6.00 per car.

 10. Each graduate will receive 4 tickets to graduation at no charge.  There will be handicapped accommodations as well. The War Memorial Coliseum is air conditioned for your comfort.

 11.  During graduation practice, students will be instructed in the procedures for gathering with relatives and exiting the Exhibition Hall after the graduation ceremony.

 12. The senior class will take a panoramic picture at the football stadium on Thursday, May 6 at 12:30 pm.

 We anticipate a large crowd for graduation and we will do everything possible to limit the ceremony to a reasonable length of time, hopefully one hour or less.

 We hope the above information will be helpful to you.  If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact the school.  Once again, congratulations to the Leo High School Class of 2021 Graduates!
