  • Dear 2020 Graduates:

    Last year, Topeka Public School District and many surrounding colleges held virtual graduation ceremonies due to the high level of spread of the virus. This year, the county restrictions have reduced, vaccinations have been available and the spread of the virus is at a much lower level. Therefore, we are offering the opportunity for the 2020 graduates who would like to cross the graduation stage in-person an opportunity to do so on Sunday, May 23, 2021. While students have received their diploma, they will receive a small keepsake from the school. If you would like to participate, you must wear masks and follow all safety protocols. If you would like to participate, all participants must register at the link below by April 30, 2021 to enable us to ensure we prepare accordingly. Each graduate will be allowed admittance of up to seven guests and tickets will be made available by the school who will contact students based on the contact information provided. The ceremonies on Sunday are as follows:

    Topeka West - 9:00AM
    Highland Park High - 10:30AM
    Topeka High - 12:00PM
