Graduation moved indoors
The Rockdale High School gradation Friday has been moved indoors to the RHS Gym, according to Supt. Denise Monzingo.
"While we wanted to make these decisions in time to allow families to plan, it was important that we had all procedures in place prior to making the call to move graduation," said.
"We know graduation is important to our families and community, but we have limited seating in the gym. In order to accommodate this lack of space, each graduate will receive nine tickets during graduation rehearsal. Each ticket is for one person over the age of two. Children 2 and under who will be sitting in your lap, will not need a ticket. Doors will open at 6:30 pm."
"We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause however it is in the best interest of our students to ensure that commencement exercise is an event not interrupted due to weather," she said.
RISD Technology Department has worked to create a live Internet feed which can be viewed on the Rockdale ISD Facebook, or available to view in the high school cafeteria for any attendee without a ticket.
For any questions please call 512-430-6000 instead of the high school.
Guests with tickets will enter the gym through the lower or upper gym entrance. Graduating seniors will use the bus entrance and stage in the old gym. The Big Blue Band will enter through the band hall. Administrators and graduation workers will enter through the lower gym entrance.
