Guthrie High School has scheduled graduating commencement exercises to honor the Class of 2023 for Friday, May 19, 2023, at 7:30 p.m.
The ceremonies will be at either the Lazy E Arena or Jelsma Stadium depending on the availability of the arena.
In the event the Lazy E Arena is not available for the ceremonies, they will be moved to Jelsma Stadium (weather permitting).
“Mr. LeGrande (GHS Principal) and I both had hoped to lock in a date for the indoor venue but also realize families must plan for this important day in the lives of their children,” Dr. Mike Simpson said in a release. “Having anything outdoors in Oklahoma during the spring can be problematic if a large crowd is expected. We hope to secure the Lazy E Arena but realize the importance establishing a date for the event.”
The district is expected to be notified in February regarding the availability of the arena.
Graduation announcements will come with an insert that identifies the scheduled location of the ceremonies.
