Doors will open @ 5:00 PM to the public for general seating (no tickets are necessary). Entrance will be limited to the student entrance closest to the gym. Reserving seats is not allowed. Overflow viewing for graduation is on the walking track and Performing Arts Center (live video telecast).



Any person requiring handicap access and seating will be accommodated at the athletic entrance at the side of the school starting at 4:30 PM.  Only one person is allowed to accompany anyone needing assistance and seating for both will be limited to the section closest to the exit door. This is for the convenience of the handicapped individual.


             SHUTTLE BUS                                      

We will be offering shuttle buses that will operate starting @ 5:00 PM. There are three scheduled stop locations. Locations are as follows: At both Franklin Street entrances to the school, at the main driveway intersection by the tennis courts, and Winter Street near train tracks on Franklin Street. After graduation, shuttle buses will load and make one run back to Franklin Street. Return service will not be available after the first return run. Return service is intended for those with limited mobility.



On the day of graduation, all graduates will park in the junior parking area (lower lot) and walk up the access path. Graduates should arrive no later than 5:00 PM and enter the school by the athletic entrance and file directly to Student Dining. No guests are allowed to enter at this door. The ceremony will start promptly @ 6:00 PM. Graduates should not bring valuables with them since there is no place to keep them secure. We cannot be responsible for any lost or stolen items.
