Done with school and ready to graduate? Here’s all the important information you need for graduation.

When: Saturday, June 8, 4 pm

Where: The Cedar Park Center (2100 Avenue of the Stars, at the intersection of 183A and New Hope Road) There are no tickets, no reserved seating, and no limit to
how many can attend.

Monies or Textbooks: Seniors are responsible for taking care of any outstanding debts prior to graduation, including library fines or books not turned in, textbooks, books or items owed to teachers, uniforms, outstanding fees, or any other item or money owed to LHS, faculty or staff. These items must be resolved or exemptions will be held. If there are any remaining items, those will be noted on the chairs at graduation practice. Failure to clear these items will result in the diploma being held.

Graduation Practice: Mandatory and will take place at 9 am.,Thursday, June 6, in the Competition Gym. In case of a conflict, only Mr. Mansfield can give permission to be absent from practice. No caps and gowns for practice. Students eligible for Texas Scholars will receive their medal at practice and will be responsible for bringing the medal to wear at graduation on Saturday. Replacement medals will not be available.

Transportation: School buses will transport students to the Cedar Park Center from the Leander High. All students must ride the buses to ensure maximum organization and minimal confusion.

Graduation Day Schedule: 1:30 p.m. – Students should arrive at LHS with cap and gown, and report to the competition gym for final practice.
2:45 p.m. – Students will begin boarding the buses.
3:15 p.m. – Buses leave LHS

Dress and Shoes: We want our students to look their best at this very important event; therefore, girls are expected to wear a dress or dress slacks and blouse under their gown (no jeans). Boys are expected to wear dress pants, collared shirts and ties under the gown (again, no jeans). Caps and gowns cannot be modified in any way. Students should wear footwear appropriate for a dress occasion. No sandals, flip flops, or tennis/running shoes. Boys should wear socks with their shoes. Because there are rather steep ramps on and off the stage, girls might want to avoid super high heels. Remember, this is being filmed and is shown on the jumbo-tron.

What to Bring: Students are responsible for bringing their caps and gowns with them. Personal belongings should not be brought on the bus. If something must come with you (i.e., keys, tiny purse, etc.,) it will be placed in a box in a holding room and returned after you have picked up your diploma. You cannot have anything with you during the ceremony. No phones or electronics of any kind. Please leave balls, beach balls or any/all distracting items at home. Students who violate this rule run the risk of not “walking” at graduation or having their diploma held for an indeterminate time.

Parent/Guest Parking: Parking is available immediately adjacent to the Cedar ParkCenter. There is a $5.00 fee per car to park. The mobility impaired entrance is on southwest end or mobility impaired guests can be dropped off and meet their parties after the vehicle is parked.

Seating: Seating for & family and friends is on a first come, firstserve basis, and there is no limit to the number of guests who may attend.

What Should Parents Bring: Parents, family and friends may bring cameras and video devices. We have arranged for a professional photographer, Photo Texas, to take pictures of your son/daughter on the stage, and there will be a videographer who will video the ceremony. Please do not bring signs, banners, air horns, or other noisemakers. Cedar Park Center security will be present and will confiscate such items. Also, in keeping with our desire to have a dignified ceremony, we ask that these devices not be used.

Project Graduation: This important drug/alcohol free event will be on Saturday, June 8, after graduation from 10:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m. with doors locking at 11:00 p.m.. The event is sponsored by the senior parents and will provide fun, games, food, and prizes. We hope all of our seniors will choose to attend this drug/alcohol free event as a way to celebrate their important achievement.

Senior Awards Night: This special event will be held at 6:00 p.m., Monday, May 20, 2013, in the Performing Arts Center on our campus. This is an opportunity to recognize the many achievements of our seniors and announce local scholarships.
Pick Up of Diplomas: Diplomas will be picked up right after the graduation ceremony at the Cedar Park Center. Any diplomas not picked up at that time may be picked up during the summer Monday – Thursday, 8:00 a.m. – 12:00p.m. or 1:00p.m. – 5:00p.m. in the Guidance Office. Our campus will be closed June 24 through July 5, 2013.
