COMMONLY ASKED GRADUATION QUESTIONS!

COMMONLY ASKED GRADUATION QUESTIONS!

DO GRADUATES HAVE TO TAKE THE SHUTTLE TO ARRIVE AT GRADUATION?
Yes, we would like all graduates to shuttle in from the shuttle designated site.  This ensures on time and safe arrival of all graduates.
 
WHAT CAN WE NOT BRING TO GRADUATION?
Umbrellas, balloons, coolers, and air horns or other loud noise makers are not allowed in the stadium. Umbrellas/balloons can obstruct views, coolers are unnecessary, and air horns can be uncomfortable to those around.
 
WHEN DO WE RECEIVE OUR GRADUATION TICKETS, OUR 1 PARKING PASS, AND CAPS & GOWNS?
Cap and gown pickup along with graduation ticket pickup is May 30th in the Badlands Stadium from 1:45-2:30pm.  Make sure all debts are cleared and chromebooks returned. Anyone owing debts will not receive their gown/tickets.
 
CAN I ARRIVE EARLY AND SAVE SEATS OR WAIT IN LINE?
No, the stadium is shut down until the parking lot opens 1 hour prior to the start of the ceremony. Any blankets/chairs that make it into the stadium prior will be swept. 
 
WE HAVE A PERSON WITH DISABILITIES AND NEED HANDICAP PARKING, DOES THAT COUNT AS MY 1 PARKING PASS?
Yes, every graduate receives 1 parking pass to park on campus.  Handicap parking is limited and on a first come first serve basis. 
 
WILL THERE BE ACCESSIBLE SEATING FOR PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES AT THE EVENT?
Yes, there will be seating for persons with disabilities and their families on the track. Like parking, this is limited, and on a first come first serve basis.
 
WILL ANYTHING BE DONE ABOUT THE WEATHER?
The weather cannot be controlled. June can be hot and June can be gloomy.  Check the weather prior to the event and dress accordingly.  Hats and sunscreen are highly recommended.
 
CAN MY GRADUATE WEAR LEIS AND OTHER SORTS OF REGALIA DURING THE CEREMONY?
Only school provided/approved regalia may be worn during the ceremony.  This regalia is distributed during senior awards and consists of cords, stoles, and medals that are directly related to and approved by SJHHS. Leis can be given to graduates after the ceremony and look great in pictures! Students requesting to wear culturally relevant regalia during the ceremony must get prior approval from ASB.
 
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR UNDER MY GOWN AND ON MY FEET?
Clothes and shoes!  After graduation there will be pictures taken by family/friends.  Think about what you want to wear under your gown that will make your family happy during pictures.  This is a dignified ceremony and it is suggested that graduates wear dresses and dress clothes.  Absolutely no heels on the turf!  The heels will not only poke holes in the turf, but they will also get stuck and you may fall.  Flats or wedges are recommended.
 
WILL THERE BE A PHOTOGRAPHER TAKING PICTURES OF GRADUATES RECEIVING THEIR DIPLOMAS?
Why of course there will!  South Coast Photographic will be taking a still shot of each graduate holding the diploma and another shot of the student receiving the diploma on stage. 
 
WILL WE BE ABLE TO COME ONTO THE FIELD AND TAKE PICTURES AFTER THE CEREMONY?
The graduates will do a recession out of the back of the stadium at the end of the ceremony and pick up their diplomas.  Parents/guests will exit the front of the stadium and wait for their graduate outside of the stadium and gym area.  The stadium will not be available after the ceremony.
