Commencement Ceremony to be Held in the Gymnasium

The Commencement Ceremony for the Class of 2017 will be held in the gymnasium at 5 p.m.  Access to the campus will be open for spectators at 3:45 p.m. with doors opening at 4 p.m.  We offer a few reminders for our graduates and their families.


  • Graduates should plan to arrive to South High and meet in the fieldhouse no later than 4 p.m.  Only the South High graduates will be permitted into the fieldhouse both before and after the ceremony.

  • Seating is open in the gym, but requires a ticket.  Limited accessible seating is available at the base of the bleachers. Only one family member will be allowed to sit with someone needing accessible seating.  All other family members will need to sit in the spectator bleachers.

  • So as to not impede sightlines, balloons and/or signage will not be allowed into the building.

  • Graduates will follow a recessional back into the fieldhouse at the conclusion of the ceremony where they will receive their temporary files and diploma.

  • Spectators should remain in their seats until all graduates have exited the gym.

  • Graduates have been encouraged to arrange a place to meet family and friends following the ceremony as only the graduates will be allowed into the fieldhouse.  Families may want to stay in the gym and have the graduates return there, as it is a good place for photo opportunities on the stage, etc.

  • For those unable to attend the ceremony, it will be streamed live via High School Cube.  We have linked it here for your convenience.
