The Bethel High School Graduation 2021 Has Been Rescheduled to Wednesday, June 23rd, 6pm, Due to Weather, according to a notice sent to Students, Parents and Guardians today:

Dear Students, Parents/Guardians,

Unfortunately, the latest guidance received from our weather consultant indicates that the rain will remain stationary into the early evening.  This would not give our staff enough time to dry all seating and platforms before the ceremony begins, creating an unsafe environment for spectators, staff, and graduates.  Therefore, we will be moving the graduation ceremony to our stated rain date of Wednesday, June 23rd, 2021@ 6pm. We look forward to celebrating with our seniors! Please see below for final details:

The Bethel High School faculty and staff are looking forward to this special ceremony to be held for the first time in 22 years on Ralph DeSantis Field, Wednesday, June 23, 2021 at 6 p.m. (guest arrival beginning at 5 pm please see below for specific directions).  The graduation ceremony will be a formal commencement exercise that we believe reflects the values of our parents, our Board of Education and our educational community.  This letter contains the major details about the ceremony so that you may plan for this important evening.  In preparation, we ask that you read the information below carefully, as execution of this event in an orderly fashion, requires all of us to work together.
