Class of 2021 graduation info
Dear Seniors and Families,
We are so excited to provide you with details about the upcoming Albany High School graduation!
Graduation 2021 will consist of a series of outdoor, in-person events where students will receive their diplomas on Sunday, June 27, on the Albany High football field. Each senior will be allowed to bring four guests. There will be seven events, and an approximate schedule as well as additional information are available below.
Seniors must wear their caps and gowns to the outdoor ceremony. No stilettos or high heels will be permitted on the field. Students wearing any foot attire that can puncture the field will be provided flip flops.
Each senior will be allowed to bring four guests (please note the change!). We remind seniors and guests to observe proper social distancing by staying six feet apart from other family groups. Face masks are recommended but not required. Seniors will be provided a Class of 2021 facemask.
Please plan to arrive at the assigned time. Families may park in the rear parking lot (the entrance is off North Main Street), and then proceed to the football field. Our staff will be on hand to guide you. Please wear comfortable footwear, as the walk from the parking lot to the football field is a bit of a distance. Monitors will be available to assist any seniors/guests with mobility needs.
Students will be lined up in alphabetical order by academy on the football field. Guests will be escorted to the stadium seating. Graduates will proceed to the stage, where students will receive their diplomas.
We look forward to seeing you at graduation and celebrating with you! We are proud of each and every member of the Class of 2021 and the resilience you have shown during these challenging times.
Please note the table below is for general planning purposes. Specific times for each student have been mailed out with the information on this page. If you have questions, please contact us at (518) 475-6200.
In addition the in-person celebrations on Sunday, we have also released a series of videos featuring seniors reflecting on their time at Albany High, as well as messages to Falcons from district leadership.
