Lee’s Summit R-7 School District

The Lee’s Summit R-7 School District will host virtual graduation on Saturday, July 25, following guidance from Jackson County officials.

The video commencement will celebrate the Class of 2020 from Lee’s Summit High School, Lee’s Summit North and Lee’s Summit West. Summit Ridge Academy’s virtual graduation ceremony, which was previously scheduled for July 27, is moved to July 25. All virtual ceremonies will premiere at times in the afternoon/evening that will be determined at a later date.

The virtual ceremony will be professionally produced by a local company and include the traditional components of a high school graduation ceremony (student speeches, welcome address, conferring, etc.) while highlighting each graduate and celebrating the Class of 2020.
