Lee's Summit R-7 School District

2021 Graduation

The Lee’s Summit R-7 School District will host in-person graduation ceremonies on Saturday, May 22, at Children’s Mercy Park, the home of the Sporting Kansas City soccer club in Kansas City, Kansas, rain or shine.

Venue technology will automatically assign seats for each family group before the ceremony and can ensure that the members of graduates’ party are systemically socially distanced throughout the stadium. Guests will wear masks while entering, exiting and moving around the stadium, but will not be required to wear them at their seats.

Graduates will participate in a traditional ceremony — complete with student speeches and a walk across the stage. The ceremony will be projected on the park’s large video board, utilize in-house sound and will also be live-streamed.

The time of the ceremonies will be as follows:

  • LSHS at 3 p.m.
  • LSNHS at 5:30 p.m.
  • LSWHS at 8 p.m.
  • Details regarding a Summit Ridge Academy ceremony will be provided.
