We cannot wait to celebrate with you, graduates! It's time to leave the nest. As you prepare to graduate, we have prepared a safe, celebratory graduation for you!

On the day of your graduation, you should be dressed in your cap and gown and line up in the Garvey Center 45 minutes prior to their ceremony. The ceremonies will take place in the parking lot north of the Mabee Learning Center (east of the Payne Athletic Center).

If weather requires an indoor ceremony, ONLY guests with tickets will be allowed to enter the Payne Athletic Center. Following COVID-19 safety protocols, FOUR tickets will be distributed to each graduate at Senior Salute. Reminder: it is the responsibility of the graduate to keep track of the tickets. Lost tickets will not be replaced.

We know you have a family and friends who will want to watch you walk the stage, so the ceremony will be streamed at

NOTE: Masks are required before, during and after the ceremony, and healthy distancing between family units is expected.
