Commencement Email Update 4/28/2020


Black Tiger Families, 


After releasing the original plans for Commencement, the Cuyahoga Falls High School  administrative team started to receive suggestions on how to improve our ideas. Again and again, the team was asked to consider allowing the presence of family members on the important day of the recording. After hours of collaboration, several great improvements were made to our ceremony. On behalf of the staff and graduates, Thank You. This is clearly new territory for all of us and we truly value your input. Although we are physically distant, we are still a Black Tiger Family. 


Today, the CFHS administrative team is excited to share the news allowing graduates to have four guests attend the filming during their scheduled allocated time on stage. Details outlining this are located by clicking the link in your corresponding email and are also posted on our website under the Commencement Ceremony Class of 2020. In addition, attachments including a picture of where guests will be located as well as the details and map of stations for our graduates are included. 


We realize this new plan is exciting for many of our families. However, we need to remind you that the virtual ceremony will follow our traditional Commencement ceremony’s footprint. Families that choose to view the recording are asked to adhere to the procedures that we have laid out in order to respect the film crew and staff.  On this day, families will be escorted by staff during their child’s time period to stand in the back of the auditorium to watch their child walk across the stage, stop at the podium to say their name, pick-up their diploma cover from a small table and finally walk across the remainder of the stage. 


Below are some important links to review prior to the filming of the commencement ceremony:


In order to attend the recording, students  must complete the FAMILY RECORDING RSVP


All seniors must reserve a spot for the  recording days. Make sure to complete the SELECTED TIME SLOT form if you have not done so yet. 


We ask all family members to review THE GUEST DOCUMENT in order to prepare for the recording day. It includes a map of where guests will be located as well important  information regarding procedures. 


We ask all students to review RECORDING AND STATION MAP DOCUMENT which provides a map of the stations as well as important information and procedures.


All information including the above links can be found on the LINKS FOR CUYAHOGA FALLS HIGH SCHOOL 2020 VIRTUAL COMMENCEMENT


Thank you again for providing your feedback. We are all in this together.  Be well, stay safe and as always Go Black Tigers!
