We look forward to celebrating our graduates in person this year. Ceremonies will be at Highline Memorial Stadium and the Highline Performing Arts Center.
Update: We are expanding capacity and are able to accommodate more guests at graduation. Each graduate will now be able to invite three guests. There will still only be one physical ticket. Guests of the same graduate will need to coordinate and enter together. Please note, physical tickets say they admit two guests, they will now admit three.
Guests will sit in socially-distanced pods. Pods are defined as three guests of the same graduate (same ticket), sitting together in marked seating areas. Tickets were distributed through schools.
Masks will be required for all guests and graduates.
Performing Arts Center Parking
We have limited on-site parking at the Performing Arts Center for students, staff and guests. Same household carpooling is encouraged.
Highline Memorial Stadium Parking and Transportation
Parking at the Performing Arts Center on S. 154th is available but limited. If parking is full, please plan to use shuttles at school sites or other public parking. ADA parking will be available at Moshier Field at the entrance of S.156th (ADA placard is required). There will be no general parking at Moshier Field. Families can also be dropped off at the Performing Arts Center and walk a short distance to the stadium. Please see the walking path illustrated on the Graduation 2021 page.
All graduates must ride the bus from their school site.
After the ceremony, all graduates are required to ride the bus back to the school. Graduates and guests will reunite at their school site.
No balloons will be allowed at the stadium or on the bus.
There will be no in-person rehearsal this year. To prepare for graduation, please review these video walkthroughs of the Performing Arts Center and Highline Memorial Stadium. They show you how to navigate check-in, load the bus, walk in the processional, line up for name reading, pose for photos on stage and depart in the recessional.
Performing Arts Center
Please note: Graduates will be staged outdoors in a socially distanced line prior to the ceremony. Please plan for inclement weather.

Please note: All students are required to ride the shuttle from their school site. Students will need to wear turf appropriate shoes. You will not be allowed to load the bus or walk at the stadium if you have on heels (high heel or spiked heel/stiletto); heels will puncture the turf and are prohibited on the field.
