GRADUATION - May 25 - Football Stadium 8:00 P.M.
Graduates must be in the gym no later than 7:00 P.M.
Graduates are to pick up their diplomas in the small gym AFTER the ceremony.
Due to the large crowds at graduation, we suggest you arrive early. Gates will open at 6:00 P.M. Once a parking lot is full the gates will be closed. Handicap parking is available in the south-west parking lot. A Handicap plate or plaque is required to park in the handicap lot. Shuttles will be available to the football stadium for those in need.
To protect Burrowing Owls and their homes, VGHS Administration put up signs and tape to keep the community from parking in the dirt area across from VGHS. Please do not park in this area or remove the signs and tape. Please park in designated areas only. Thank you for protecting the Burrowing Owls and their homes.
Guests are asked to treat the ceremony with appropriate dignity and respect. The attention should be on the graduates and not on the people in the audience. Applause is appropriate, but common courtesy needs to be displayed so every graduate’s name is heard. Spectators are expected to be seated in the bleachers throughout the ceremony.
