Congratulations to the CLASS OF 2020!

  • IT'S OFFICIAL! SLPS Class of 2020 will graduate at …

    BUSCH STADIUM!

    Thank you for holding the last week of July open because there is BIG news today! Saint Louis Public Schools' Class of 2020 will have the distinction of being the first ever to participate in a graduation ceremony at Busch Stadium!

    The event is set for Thursday, July 30, 2020, time TBD (rain contingency planned). And, there is more BIG news! Our commencement speaker will be none other than comedian, actor and St. Louis native, Cedric the Entertainer! 

    As an open-air ballpark, Busch Stadium makes it possible for us to have a traditional ceremony by offering us a greater measure of safety in these unusual times. It also offers a unique and exciting graduation memory for our graduates and their families. Now that all the bases are covered, we are ready to confirm your participation! Please complete this brief survey. Once you have confirmed, a printed invitation and a Cardinals commemorative graduation ticket will be mailed to you. Your swift confirmation will also help us in ordering special gifts for you!

    Even with a large stadium, we will have to maintain a close eye on our guest count. Each graduate may invite two guests. Depending upon what’s happening in our community at the time, we might be able to accommodate two additional guests per graduate.

    The St. Louis City Department of Health (DOH) has approved our graduation plan but has indicated the need to keep a roster of all attendees. Their names and contact information must be included in your survey responses. You may also contact us by email with any questions: 2020grads@slps.org.

    Additional notes:

    - The DOH requires that all guests wear face coverings, be screened and temperature-checked upon entry and agree to maintain social distance from others. Guests also must adhere to the District’s event protocol – no large bags please. This will help speed up entry into the stadium.

    - For those who cannot attend, the SLPS Graduation Event will be streamed live from Busch Stadium.

    PLEASE COMPLETE THE RSVP FORM (www.slps.org/grad2020) AS SOON AS POSSIBLE AND NO LATER THAN JULY 9, 2020. Thank you!
