NKSD Class of 2021 graduation ceremonies

It has been a long and unusual school year for the North Kitsap School District, but at last graduation season is upon us, and it looks like the Class of 2021 will get to have a more-traditional graduation ceremony than the Class of 2020.

North Kitsap High School will be hosting two graduation ceremonies on June 11 one at 4:30 p.m. and another at 7 p.m. at North Kitsap Stadium while Kingston High School will be hosting its graduation ceremony on June 12 at 1 p.m., also at North Kitsap Stadium.

“In order to uphold social distancing requirements and event capacity restrictions, commencement ceremonies will be ticket-only events this year,” NKSD communications coordinator Jenn Markaryan said.

Each graduate is provided a limited number of tickets for family and guests, and all NKSD campus protocols, such as masking and social distancing, must be followed.

For those unable to make it to the ceremonies, each school will be providing links to live-streaming of the commencement ceremonies via the school’s Facebook Pages and the NKSD website.

North Kitsap High School will make special recognition of its valedictorians — Maeve Bottoms, Emily Grant, Katie Stuart, Megan Turner, and Grace Zinkhon, along with salutatorian Keelyn Taylor.

Its speakers will be Associated Student Body president Brianna Hoffman, senior class president Casey Simonson and ASB vice president Chris Carthum.

Kingston High School will make special recognition of valedictorian Thomas Brown and salutatorian Emily Ramirez.
