Graduation Tickets

Next week, seniors will receive 6 tickets to share with their invited guests. Graduates do NOT require a ticket, so all 6 are for their guests. Families who do not need all six tickets are encouraged to share your tickets with each other. You may contact each other to make these arrangements.


We have a small surplus of tickets that will be made available by lottery drawing. Please email lynn.ojeda@pisd.edu to be registered for our lottery drawing by Monday, May 16th at 5:00pm. The lottery drawing will take place on Tuesday, May 17th, and registered families who receive an additional ticket via the lottery will be notified by Wednesday, May 18th.


Plano ISD is working to provide live streaming of the event. Once confirmed that the current wifi access has been strengthened, I will provide information on access live streaming for to you share.


Our district communications department will also record this event, and it will be broadcast within a few days of graduation on one of our district television channels to be communicated with you upon confirmation.
