Therefore, school officials ask that all parents and family members honor this event by following the Etiquette for Seminole County High School Graduation guidelines listed on page 9 in this edition.

Because of limited seating capacity, the school is issuing graduation tickets to graduates.  This will insure that immediate family members will have a seat in the gym for the ceremony.  Each graduate will receive 14 tickets for those wishing to attend the ceremony in the gym.  Others without tickets may view the live stream in the cafeteria. Tickets will be distributed to the Seniors on Thursday, May 16th during homeroom.
