GRAD NITE DETAILS
WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW….
The “Grad Nite” experience will start immediately after the Graduation Ceremony. There will be no time to go out for dinner with your family and
come back to check-in. Plan to take family photos after the Baccalaureate Ceremony (usually on the Sunday before graduation) and consider having your family dinner that night.
SHOULD MY SENIOR GO HOME AFTER GRADUATION TO CHANGE CLOTHES?
NO!! Immediately after the Graduation Ceremony the graduates will need to return their cap & gown and then pick-up their diploma. Once that is done the graduate should change their dressy clothes to casual clothes. We encourage the graduates to wear comfortable clothing and shoes to Grad Nite (Girls – no high heels). Parents, please make sure that your graduate sends his/her dressy clothes home with you. Or they can put their clothes in the “Check Room” inside the gym with other items that will be left behind and picked up the next morning.
WHAT IF MY SENIOR NEEDS PRESCRIBED MEDICATION DURING THE COURSE OF THE NIGHT?
If your senior needs to take medication that evening, he/she needs to include that on the Consent Form. The medication must be in its original container and placed in a labeled clear Ziplock bag with your child’s name on the bag. The medication will be kept safely in a labeled bag with a designated volunteer at the venue. If possible, administer your student’s medication before he/she checks in for Grad Nite. We will also accept contact lens cases and eye glasses in a clear Ziploc bag with the student’s name on it.
WHAT IF MY SENIOR WANTS TO LEAVE THE VENUE EARLY?
This will not be possible, as the only means of returning will be on the buses that will return once the event is over. No senior will be allowed to leave Grad Nite
once they’ve checked-in and boarded a bus. The volunteer staff will only call a parent or guardian if there is a problem. Yes, we will call parents of 18 year old seniors.
WHAT WILL MY SENIOR NEED FOR THE GRAD NITE PARTY?
No money is required at Grad Nite. A sweatshirt or jacket may be needed.
It is advisable NOT TO BRING ANYTHING OF VALUE. We will not be held responsible for any lost or stolen items left behind in the “Check Room” or at the venue. The volunteers in the gym “Check Room” will not accept valuable items such as jewelry. Please leave your items with your parents after the ceremony.
Cell phones are allowed. Please make sure every student includes their cell phone number on the consent form.
