AT THE FIELD
All guests must sit in the stands.There will be seating for handicapped guests, who may bring one other person with them to the handicapped seating area. Parents/guests will not be permitted on the field for any reason. In the past, we have had parents who have come on to the field to attempt to take pictures. Please rest assured that photos of the graduates getting their diplomas will be taken. Parents/guests who attempt to access the field will be asked to return to their seats and may be asked to leave the field entirely.
We wish the ceremony to be dignified and respectful. Toward this end, students may not decorate their robe or mortar. Inflatable items, balloons, and noise-makers are strictly prohibited at the stadium by both graduates and guests. Cell phones on the field are prohibited.
RCHS Graduation ceremony will be held June 6, 2013 at 7:00pm at the RCHS Stadium. Students must attend practice on June 5 to receive their tickets.
Tickets will be distributed after the graduation practice on Wednesday, June 5 at 1pm. RCHS will divide the number of available tickets/seats by the number of graduates and that is how many tickets each graduate will get. We anticipate that number to be 7 tickets per student (subject to change). Students who miss practice will forfeit their tickets unless arrangements are made ahead of time.
All Seniors must complete a check out form by Wednesday, June 5th before 12:00 PM. Failure to complete a form will result in not graduating! Forms may be picked up in the Counseling office starting June 1st or printed offline.
Students who fail to meet the Senior contract requirements lose the right to walk at Graduation! Please see the Senior Contract for details!
