LSMSA year-end events rescheduled for August 9

The Louisiana School for Math, Science, and the Arts (LSMSA) has rescheduled end-of-the-year events that were postponed due to COVID-19. Tentatively set for Sunday, Aug. 9, three major events are planned for an unprecedented one-day celebration.

“It is important for us to offer these annual traditions for the LSMSA Community,” said Dr. Steve Horton, LSMSA executive director. “While a one-day celebration will be hectic, these are meaningful milestones for our students, and we hope to offer them in-person as allowed within state guidelines.”

The following dates/events are tentative and subject to change based on the state’s directives for large gatherings. All events are scheduled to be held in Northwestern State University’s Prather Coliseum.

9:30 a.m. Junior Ring Ceremony
11:00 a.m. Commencement Rehearsal
12:30 p.m. Senior Recognition Ceremony
3:00 p.m. Commencement

At this time, LSMSA is planning for open seating, taking into account any and all requirements for social distancing. However, should the state restrict the attendance of gatherings, restrictions may be put in place for the number of guests allowed per student.
