Appropriate dress for the graduation ceremony will consist of the following worn under the official gown:
Approved special recognition items include medals for valedictorians and salutatorians; stoles for Student Council Officers, Class Officers, National Honor Society, Early College High School Graduates, National Technical Honor Society; cords for the top 10% of the graduating class, community service recognition, and distinguished graduate recognition.
No other recognition or decorative items may be added to the graduation gown or cap. Students whose attire does not comply with these regulations may not be allowed to participate in the ceremony.
Several days before graduation, the gown should be taken out of the wrapper and hung to let the wrinkles fall out. The mortar board is worn flat on the head. Tassels are to be worn on the right side of the cap before Graduation and will be moved to the left side as part of the ceremony.
DO NOT USE A HOT IRON ON YOUR GOWN!
The Graduation Ceremony is a formal occasion and appropriate behavior is expected. Noisemakers are not permitted during the ceremony. Any violations of these regulations may result in confiscation of the items or removal from the arena. Doors will open 30 minutes prior to the start of the ceremony. Families must have their tickets with them in order to enter the ceremony.
