TICKETS

Limited to 6 Per Graduate

Tickets will be distributed to the graduate only on Friday, June 5, 2020 in the drop-off lane at MWHS from 2:00-6:00 pm. This would normally be done during practice, but we are not allowed to have graduation practice this year.

SEATING


Students will be told in advance if they will be seated on the home or visitor side of the field and tickets will be marked Home or Visitor. Once inside the stadium guests will need to move to their seats. There will be markings on the seats indicating which seats are to be left unoccupied for social distancing and guests will sit on every other row for the same reason.

GUESTS

Guests will be required to practice social distancing entering the stadium, in the bleachers, and exiting the stadium. Gathering for group photos will not be permitted.



ENTERING THE STADIUM

All four stadium entrances will be open to help with social distancing. There will also be markings on the sidewalks to serve as a reminder about social distancing and provide a guide.



EXITING THE STADIUM

Normally parents are encouraged to stay for the entire ceremony. This year students and parents may leave once they receive their diploma for safety and to ease crowding at the end of the ceremony. Once the ceremony is over guests are required to exit the venue.
