PSD planning 2021 in-person graduations with health protocols 

Poudre School District intends to host in-person graduation ceremonies in May to celebrate seniors in the Class of 2021.  

With planning efforts underway, PSD is not yet ready to communicate all the logistical details, such as the maximum number of attendees per graduate or seating arrangements. That said, families can expect COVID-19 health and safety protocols to be in effect – think required masks, 6 feet of distancing between graduates and attendees, symptom checks at entry. As information is finalized, it will be updated on this web page. 

As of early March, PSD’s graduation schedule is as follows: 

  • Thursday, May 20 – Polaris Expeditionary Learning School, 1905 Orchard Place, Fort Collins
    • Polaris: 12:30 p.m. 
  • Friday May 21 – French Field at Rocky Mountain High School, 1300 W. Swallow Road, Fort Collins
    • Poudre High School: 9 a.m. 
    • Rocky Mountain High School: 1 p.m. 
  • Saturday May 22 – French Field at Rocky Mountain High School, 1300 W. Swallow Road, Fort Collins 
    • Fossil Ridge High School: 9 a.m.
    • Fort Collins High School: 1 p.m. 


We will post information about PSD’s four alternative schools’ and the International Baccalaureate ceremonies as it is available. 

This information is subject to change, as PSD works with the Larimer County Department of Health and Environment and monitors changing public health conditions.
