Information for students

This is a very special time for you, and we want you to have the perfect graduation ceremony. Please, read this information carefully, as it contains information you need to ensure a wonderful night for everyone!
The ceremony begins at 7:30pm, but you will need to report to the Chieftain Center at 6:00 pm. Only graduates may enter there.

Do not wear cap/gown when you check in at the Chieftain Center. You will need to carry in your cap/gown. Only appropriately dressed graduates will be allowed to enter the Chieftain Center. All SHS Dress Code policies apply regarding hair color, piercings, etc. Graduates with inappropriate items will not be allowed to move to the staging area.

After entering the secured area, you will put on your cap and gown to have your formal graduation picture taken. The online form and selfie taken on May 11th will identify that picture for later purchase, if desired.

Next, you will need to turn in your phone, keys, and/or purse to staff before moving to seats on the court. Bags will be furnished for safekeeping and you will pick them up after graduation is over. Pickup will be at a table by the Bailey Building.

Finally, pick whatever seat you want on the court.
