If it rains on Saturday morning, LHS graduation will be moved inside Middle School & seating will be by invitation only
Published DateLACONIA — With what is now called tropical storm Andrea bearing down on the Atlantic Coast, administrators at the Laconia School District told the School Board there is a contingency plan for Saturday morning's scheduled graduation.
As of 4 p.m. yesterday, the Laconia High School graduation will be held at 10 a.m. on the grass at Opechee Park.
Administrators said they are prepared to move the graduation inside the Laconia Middle School should it rain and said they will notify guests and School Board members via Alert Now — school alert system.
Business Administrator Ed Emond said should the graduation be moved inside only those with invitations will be admitted in the smaller space. He said the school district is still working on parking and possible shuttles from the High School and Pleasant Street Elementary School.
The venue, that has traditionally been held on the football field at the high school, was relocated for this year while the new Bank of New Hampshire Stadium is under construction.
Former School Board Chair and current Vice President of Hospital Clinical Services at LRGHealthcare Marge Kerns is the commencement speaker.
