  • Be early. Parking will be difficult to find if you are late.
  • Appropriate attire is required. Students who do not have their cap and gown will not be able to participate in the graduation ceremony.
  • Extra decorations or stuffed animals on cap and gown will not be allowed.
  • Children may not walk or sit with the graduates on the field during the ceremony.
  • For safety reasons, flat shoes only - no heels!
  • For your safety, metal detectors and wands will be in place at the Amphitheater and Soccer Field. As a result of the delay this may cause, our gates will be opened for guests at 3:30pm to accommodate the crowd.
