CHS graduation info

The 2020 Cross High School graduation will be held on June 20 at A.E. Ravenell Stadium. The ceremony will begin at 9 a.m. Each student will be allowed four guests.

(Children 3 years of age and younger will not require a ticket; however, seating will be measured and designated to accompany ticketed individuals only.)

Parking and traffic

Parking is available throughout the campus. We will only block out parking near the entrance for graduates to walk and enter the stadium. Student/graduate traffic will enter the campus at the two gates closest to the football field. Student/graduate traffic will exit through the two gates near the bus loop.

There will be two gates for attendee/guest traffic. These gates will be marked by last name, A-M; N-Z (of graduates). Attendees/guests will enter and exit out of the same gate.

 Arrival and seating

The stage for graduation will be placed in the center of the 50-yard line.  Seating will be available for guests in the home section of the stadium. Seating will be pre-marked. Attendees/guests will be expected to remain in their designated seating area until the conclusion of the graduation ceremony. Attendees WILL NOT be permitted on the field before, during or after the graduation ceremony.

**Please note that our clear bag entry procedure will be in effect.**

Attendees/guests will be dismissed by section in an effort to adhere to social distancing guidelines. All attendees/guests are asked to move directly to their vehicles and exit the campus.
