Graduates will receive their tickets on Friday, June 12th during the required graduation practice. All senior debt must be paid before tickets will be released to the student. Practice begins promptly at 9:30AM. Each graduate will receive 12 tickets to the ceremony. Children under the age of two are not required to have a ticket. They should be prepared to sit on the lap of an adult to allow space for other ticket holders. In the event of bad weather, graduation will be held in the New Gym. Each graduate will have four tickets for entry to the New Gym. Four tickets will gain entry to the auditorium for live streaming. The remaining four tickets will not have access to the ceremony due to space limitations inside the building.
There will be limited seating for handicapped guests and one escort on the field. This seating is on a first come basis. Guests requesting handicap seating will need to do so prior to June 11th so that their ticket can be stamped for entry onto the field.
