Event Guidelines

Graduates are being asked to arrive and report to the gym no later than 6:15 p.m. All bags are subject to search upon entry. Bullhorns, whistles, beach balls, balloons, confetti, streamers, etc. will not be permitted in the stadium.  Handicap seating is available.


The masking policy for this year’s Graduation Ceremony has been updated due to Gov. Abbott's Executive Order issued May 18 related to masking guidelines. The decision has been made to make the wearing of masks or face coverings optional at the Graduation Ceremony for the students and those in attendance.

This decision was made largely due to the fact that this is an outdoor event, it is the last day of school, and that we will continue with reduced capacity due to COVID as well as parking issues at Unicorn Stadium.
