LaPorte Graduation Hangs in Balance

(LaPorte, IN) - No decision has been made on where to hold the LaPorte High School graduation.

Westville officials have decided to hold their graduation ceremony at the 49’er drive-in theatre near Valparaiso.


Schools Superintendent Mark Francesconi says he’s not sure what will be allowed when LaPorte’s graduation ceremony in June because of expected changes in the governor’s stay at home order and social distancing guidelines.


He hopes to have a clearer picture in the coming weeks so a decision can be made by the middle of next month at the latest.


Francesconi says a lot of things are on the table and students are being surveyed to find out what they prefer.


He says having the ceremony at Kiwanis Field is most desired with the least desired option being a remote graduation ceremony. He hopes a decision can be made by no later than the middle of next month.
