Appearing live onstage at the DTE Energy Music Theatre on Saturday, June 12: the Rochester Community Schools Class of 2021!
We look forward to celebrating the senior classes from Stoney Creek, Rochester Adams and Rochester High School with three distinct commencement ceremonies at the DTE Energy outdoor amphitheater in Clarkston. This exciting venue allows classmates and families to gather together safely with weather-protected seating to recognize the accomplishments of our graduates.
RCS will celebrate on June 12 according to this timeframe.
- 11:00 a.m. Stoney Creek High School, doors open at 10:00am
- 3:00 p.m. Rochester Adams High School, doors open at 2:00pm
- 7:00 p.m. Rochester High School, Doors open at 6:00pm
Each high school will create a personalized event with an outstanding committee of students, parents, principals and teachers.
Under current COVID-19 conditions, the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services determines gathering capacity limitations. Each student will be allowed a limited number of tickets for spectators, as permitted by the MDHHS orders and public health conditions on June 12. At this time, MDHHS regulations allow a maximum of 1,000 people for an event at the DTE Energy Music Theatre. Each class has approximately 400 students. Details and directions will continue to be shared through our schools. The ceremonies will also be livestreamed for loved ones to share in the excitement from any location.
This is an exciting time of year as we prepare to participate in senior traditions with more than 1,200 members of the RCS Class of 2021.
Thank you for joining us in recognizing the Class of 2021!
