Class of 2016 Commencement
Commencement for the SYVUHS graduating class of 2016 will be held on Friday, May 27 at 4:00 PM in Pirate Stadium.
Seating is first come, first served. The stadium gates will open at 2:00 PM to admit friends and family of the graduates. Seats may not be reserved by leaving blankets or other personal effects. At least one member of each party must remain with any belongings left to hold seats. Unattended items will be removed. Handicapped seating is marked in the bleachers (no track seating) with handicap parking available next to the maintenance building accessible from the back parking lot.
Graduates are encouraged to carpool or get dropped off and must arrive in the New Gym by 3:00 PM, dressed appropriately (slacks, collared shirts, and dress shoes for guys; skirts or dresses with dress shoes or sandals for girls) and carrying their caps and gowns. Students should bring no other items to check-in as nothing may be hand-carried into the ceremony and nothing may be left in the gym. Please note that graduation leis are permitted, but hand-carried bouquets are not. Caps may be decorated, but must be tasteful and appropriate.
There is also a mandatory graduation practice at 2:00 PM on Thursday, May 26. All students who plan to participate in commencement must attend. All obligations must be satisfied and debts paid prior to the graduation practice.
