• Below please find key details about this year's graduation:

    • Date and time:
      • Graduation: Sunday, June 5, 2022 at 10:00 a.m.

     

    • Location: Richard Walsh Field

     

    • Parking: 
      • There should be enough parking for our graduates and their families
      • Graduating students are encouraged to carpool so that there is ample parking for guests
      • Please follow signs and look for directions from volunteers

     

    • Arrival and seating:
      • Gates will open at 8:30 am
      • Guests may enter the stadium through the entrance by the ticketing office or by ‘the McDonalds’ building
      • Guests may sit in the grandstands or on the field
      • Guests who choose to sit on the field are invited to bring their own seating (beach chairs, camping chairs, etc.; sorry, large blankets are not permitted)
      • Seats in the grandstands are probably as appealing as ones on the field (and vice versa). Families that are unsure of which seating option is best for them are welcome to bring chairs even if they sit in the grandstands. We will simply have the chairs stored out of the way, retrievable after the event 
      • Please: do not sit on the track; Seniors will be entering and exiting on the track, and we need this space open and accessible in case of an emergency
      • Please: no coolers, no beach balls, and no pop-up tents

     

    • Guests: 
      • There is no limit on the number of guests our graduates may bring
      • Access for handicapped guests:
        • There will be expanded parking for handicapped guests as well easy access to the field at the area near to the red buildings (including the ‘snack shack’)
        • Seating for guests needing handicap access and support will be provided on the track in front of the grandstands
        • All guests needing handicap access and support were previously asked to email ARHSgraduation@nsboro.k12.ma.us. If you have not, please do so immediately so that we can plan for your attendance and comfort
