Elon Parking Map

Please use the lots off of North O'Kelly Avernue for general parking.

At this time each senior will be allowed six (6) reserved seats for guests. Tickets will be issued at the end of graduation practice to each participating senior to distribute to his or her guests.  The number of tickets that each student receives is determined by taking the number of available seats in the Elon gym, subtracting the number of seats for participating seniors and faculty, and then dividing by the number of participating seniors.  The school has no more tickets to distribute.  Students should ask friends who may not be using all six tickets if additional tickets are desired.
Proper Dress
Participating students must be properly attired in academic cap and gown.  We expect all students to consider this an important event and to dress appropriately. Men are required to wear dark dress shoes, long dark dress pants, white shirts and dark ties. Ladies must wear dress shoes(black, navy, brown or nude NOT white) and dresses should not hang from under the gown.  Athletic shoes are not appropriate. Shoes that flop and/or have a strap between the toes are not appropriate. Dress sandals need a strap around the heel. The only ornamentation/decoration that is allowed will be a student's earned academic cords and medals.  All students will wear white tassels.
A professional photographer will take a picture of each student as he receives his diploma. Each senior will be able to view a proof on the photographer’s website from which an order may be placed.  No one will be allowed to come down front to take a snapshot.  This decision has been made so that all parents and guests may see the event without obstruction. Please notify your guests of this ruling.

Practice for Graduation will be Monday, June 12 at 9:45 am.   Attendance at practice is mandatory if you plan to participate on Thursday afternoon. Seniors will be advised as to where to park for practice so they will not receive a ticket or be towed.  At the conclusion of practice, students with speaking parts should plan to stay after practice to rehearse. Do not make other appointments during practice time. If there is an extenuating circumstance, call the school office (538-6020) so you may be in contact with Mr. Stephan about your situation. This is not a dress rehearsal so appropriate clothing is regular school clothes.
