Dear Parents/Guardians,

 

Good morning! We hope you are looking forward to our graduation ceremony on Friday.

 

As my phone message indicated, there is just too much information to leave on voicemail so please

make note of the information provided here. Seniors will have graduation practice tomorrow at 12:30 p.m.

in the auditorium. Caps, gowns, and tickets will be handed out in the cafeteria following rehearsal. For an outdoor ceremony, each family will receive seven tickets, which will allow entrance to the main bleachers. Once the main bleachers are at capacity, then families and guests will be directed to the visitor bleachers. Please understand that there will be no additional tickets issued. For an indoor ceremony, graduates will receive two tickets for admittance to the gymnasium and two tickets for the auditorium. Guests in the auditorium will view a livestream of the graduation ceremony.

 

Please be sure to bring all your tickets to graduation as you never know if we have to move the

ceremony indoors after beginning an outdoor ceremony. Please know that there will be a headline on the homepage of our website that will provide the graduation updates  beginning at 12:00 p.m. on graduation day. There will be no other phone calls home so we ask all parents and seniors to access this information from the website.

 

Remember that parking on campus is limited so we encourage you to carpool. You can park on either

side of the school using East Elbrook Drive or West Maple Avenue or you may park in front of the school

on Forest Avenue. The rear entrance to the school will be closed to all cars but you may walk to the

field. Please do not park anywhere in the front circle or in any of the fire lanes, which are clearly marked

in yellow. If the parking lots are full, you may park at Hillside School or Brookside School. There will be

a shuttle service from Hillside and Brookside every 15 minutes beginning at 5:15 p.m. Stadium gates will

open at 5:30 p.m.

 

Lastly, we will be livestreaming our graduation ceremony. If we do decide to move the ceremony

indoors, your family may want to consider having auditorium ticket holders watch the ceremony from

the comforts of their own homes and avoid coming to school. Regardless, please direct anyone who

would like to view the ceremony remotely to visit our website in order to access the livestream.

Streaming information will be posted on the day of graduation as a headline on our website. We look

forward to seeing you at 7:00 p.m. for a beautiful outdoor graduation ceremony.

 

Again, please check our website for any messages pertaining to graduation.

 

Thank you very much!
