Students throwing the caps at graduation

Congratulations to the Class of 2021!

Updated: May 18, 2021

As you know, the COVID 19 targeted mitigation orders regarding gathering limits are expected to be fully lifted in Pennsylvania on May 31, 2021. With the guidance released from the PA Department of Education, below you will find the revised plan for PTHS Commencement. We are excited to be able to open the event to our full capacity to accommodate unlimited family members for all graduates!

Ceremony: The ceremony will take place at Confluence Financial Partners Stadium (at the former High School) on Friday, June 11 at 7 p.m. for all graduates. Attendance at the event will not be limited and tickets will not be required. We will continue with our plan to provide seating on both sides of the field to allow for additional space between groups.   Families are encouraged to plan responsibly for attendance at the event and to use the live streaming option for extended family and friends.  

Rain Dates: In the event of inclement weather on Friday evening, the event will be moved to Saturday, June 12 at 10 a.m. at the Stadium. If necessary, a second rain date of Sunday, June 13 at 12 p.m. has been planned. The District will notify families via email and phone notification after 4 p.m. in the event that a change is necessary. 

Masks: Under CDC guidance that schools continue to use the COVID-19 prevention strategies for at least the remainder of the 2020-2021 academic school year, masks will be required at the event.
 

Special Seating at the Stadium

Due to the changes that have been made to the setup for commencement there will be no additional reserved/handicapped seating on the track as there has been in previous years. Guests in need of assistance may use the handicapped seating that is available at all stadium events in the first rows of the bleachers. This seating is limited and will be available on a first come, first served basis.

Photographs of Graduation

Photographs of Graduation
The District has given access to Tri-Color Photography to provide professional photographs of our graduates from the commencement ceremony.

Photographers will be on-hand at the ceremony and proofs of the photos will be provided online via www.tri-colorphotography.com following the event for purchase. Photographers will be onsite prior to the ceremony starting at 5:45 p.m. to get informal individual or student group photos for any interested graduates. Please note that parents will not be permitted on the field to take photos during the ceremony.  

Additional information with specific instructions for accessing the photos will follow after graduation.

Parking

Parking
Due to construction at the former High School, parking is limited and will be restricted to the former student lot and Pleasant Valley Elementary. Families are encouraged to utilize shuttles that will run from the new High School to the stadium beginning at 5:30 p.m. and continuing throughout the evening.

Graduates are asked to report to the New High School at 5:30 p.m. and park in the student parking lot. With the former school under construction, we will stage the graduates in the new gymnasium and all graduates will be transported to the stadium via bus. All students must be checked in at the New High School and take the bus to the event. Shuttles will be available after the event for those who need transportation back to their vehicle.

Due to construction at the former high school, parking will be limited to identified areas. For individuals in need of handicapped parking, please contact Jami Christopher at 724 941-6250 ext. 8800 or [email protected].
