The campus will be closed until parking begins at 3:30 PM and upon
arrival show your WA parking pass to a parking attendant and place
the pass on your vehicles left side dashboard and at this time each
graduate will be provided a WA mask. Once your vehicle is parked it
should be turned off and all passengers must remain in the vehicle
with the exception of seniors participating in the graduation
** Change – At the beginning of the ceremony, once you hear
pomp and circumstance playing over the sound system, seniors
will exit their vehicles and sit in chairs, six feet apart, in front of
the bleachers. Any senior who is uncomfortable sitting in the
chairs may remain in their vehicle.
Graduates will be called up alphabetically and will enter the bleachers
from the right set of stairs, pick up their diploma on the table on the
right and move to center stage and face the audience and pause for a
photo. Then they will move across the stage to the second table and
pick up their awards.
They will then exit the bleachers using the left stairs and stop briefly
at the WA Graduation Photo Booth for an individual photograph with
their diploma. Seniors will then return to their seats and wait for the ceremony to
conclude. The ceremony will conclude with seniors being asked to
stand for the official graduation proclamation, turning of the tassel,
and the traditional cap toss. Immediately following the ceremony
seniors should return to their family vehicle and parking attendants
will direct vehicles on how to exit the field.
