    1. Practice is at 4 pm, Friday June 9 and is mandatory. Tickets for graduation will be given out at the end of practice and all money/items owed to the school must be taken care of by this time. We anticipate practice to last for about an hour and a half. Dress is casual.
    2. Graduates should arrive to school on Saturday, June 10 by 8 am and report to the commons area. We will work with anyone not wearing appropriate clothing to try to fix the issue. Students must be dressed appropriately in order to walk.
    3. Family and guests will not be allowed to bring in camp chairs, umbrellas or tents, as this blocks the view from other guests. We encourage you to dress in light clothing, and be well hydrated before coming. Sunscreen is also highly encouraged.
    4. We will have EMS and an medical tent available,and our JROTC will be selling water. Safety for both our graduates and our guests is our number one priority.
