PARENTS AND GUESTS

Parking

Please see the attached map.  Green areas are open parking.  NOTE:  the front circle will be used for district guests so parking will be limited in that location.  However, side streets may actually be closer to the field and all gates to the field will be open!

Inclement Weather

In the event of bad weather, graduation ceremonies will be held inside the SM NORTH Fieldhouse.  Please watch your email for communications letting you know specifically where SME GRADUATION commencement will be.  If ceremonies are moved inside, seating will be limited, and tickets will be required.  Graduates each received 5 tickets at graduation rehearsal on Friday May 17, 2024.  Please check with the office if tickets have not been picked up.

Alternate Viewing
