Graduation Update! Please read carefully!
Based on Governor Abbott’s order that was released on Monday, May 18, we are removing the limit on the number of people that may ride in the car with each graduate. Guests in the vehicle, with the exception of the designated driver, may accompany the graduate into Tiger Stadium to see their student walk the stage. A designated driver will remain in the vehicle at all times. The designated driver can be a neighbor, a friend, a church member, a co-worker, etc. Only one vehicle per graduate will be allowed. They will drop off the graduate and their party at the south gate. The group will need to remain together the entire time and will exit the northwest end of the stadium with the graduate to meet their driver.
The plan listed below has been designed to honor Governor Abbott and Commissioner Morath’s graduation guidelines and social distancing guidelines from the CDC.
Parade Line-Up: The parking lot opens at 6:00 PM. Graduate and their guests must arrive no later than 6:45 pm and park in their assigned parking spot in the South Parking Lot. Parking pass must be displayed in the windshield. 7 pm Parade Begins: Graduates must wear their cap and gown in the parade. Each graduate will receive 1 parade/parking pass. There is not a limit to the number of guests that may accompany the graduate in the vehicle for the parade. Please be safe. 1 vehicle (car/pick-up truck) per graduate (siblings may ride in the same vehicle) Decorated vehicles are allowed and encouraged Broadcast: KSNY/Big Star 101.5. KSNY will broadcast the parade on the radio and SISD Facebook live beginning at 7 pm. This will include the valedictorian/salutatorian speeches, school song, alma mater, and naming of the graduates. No candy may be thrown from vehicles.
PARADE TRANSITION / GRADUATION Graduate drop-off and parking: At the end of the parade route, the graduate and their guests will exit the vehicle in the parking lot in the Southwest corner of Tiger Stadium.
