  • Graduation Weather Update

    Attention Bayshore families, 

    As of Noon today, Tuesday, May 14th, we intend to have our regularly scheduled graduation ceremony at LECOM Park on Wednesday, May 15th, at 4 p.m. Please know there may be inclement weather in the area that may impact the ceremony. As a precaution, we suggest you come prepared with a raincoat or poncho to stay as dry as possible. Should the weather become severe enough to delay the start of graduation – or require us to reschedule graduation to a later date and time within the week – we will communicate those changes to you by phone and email as soon as we have that information. We appreciate your understanding and support as we work to celebrate our accomplished seniors.
