  • Attire is informal and within school dress code.  The venue will have indoor and outdoor activities.  Graduates are encouraged to DRESS IN LAYERS and bring a jacket, as it can get very cool this late at night.
  • Any serious infraction of the Grad Night rules will be reported to the parent/guardian by telephone and may result in removal from the event.  If the parent/guardian cannot be reached, the graduate in question will be considered to be in custody of the security and/or police.
