The time has come for senior Blue Devils to say “goodbye” to high school and “hello” to bright futures.
Graduation for the Class of 2014 will take place at Lebanon High School on Saturday, May 31 at 7 p.m. – in traditional style on the football field.
Changes have been made to parking and rainout plans since last year when weather uncertainty caused administrators to move graduation indoors – and because of space limits and confusion – many parents missed their child’s big day.
This year each graduate will receive three parking tickets to drive on campus and park. To allow more room for students and their families, LHS faculty will park off campus.
In the event of rain, graduation will be moved to the gymnasium. Seating in the gymnasium will be divided equally among the number of graduates – allowing each student six tickets. Overflow seating will be directed to the school cafeteria and auditorium where guests can watch the ceremony on TVs.
Students will receive their packets including the parking passes and rainout tickets during the last week of school. If they do not pick up packets in the last week of school, seniors will receive them at the end of graduation practice on May 31.
According to a release from LHS, it is “imperative that graduates be at the May 31 practice.” If a student will not be able to make it to practice due to unforeseen circumstances, they should contact one of the coordinators immediately. Otherwise, the graduate will not be allowed to participate in the ceremony on Saturday evening.
Those without campus parking passes will be directed to off-campus parking at College Hills Church of Christ, Fairview Baptist or West Hills Baptist Church, all located on Leeville Pike. Shuttles will run from each location from 5-7 p.m. and run one hour after graduation ends.
