        • Sunday, June 6 at 10:00 AM on the football field 
          • Gates to the field will open at 8:30 AM. Guests that arrive before 8:30 are encouraged to remain distanced as feasible
          • Rain dates information:
            • The tentative date for making a decision about whether a rain date will be used is tomorrow, Thursday, June 3. The decision will be communicated through a variety of channels, including OneCallNow and email.
            • Rain dates: 6/5, 10:00 AM OR 6/7, 6:00 PM
      • Parking, guests, and seating:
        • Parking: 
          • Please arrive in one car per graduate
          • Families are encouraged to park in the following lots, according to their graduates’ last name:
            • A-J: Gold lot (adjacent to the gym) or rotunda lot
            • K-Z: Maroon lot (adjacent to H-building) or rotunda lot
          • Please follow signs and look for directions from volunteers
          • Please only park where directed and only in marked spaces
        • Guests: 
          • Please enter the stadium through one of two entrances, according to your graduate’s last name:
            • A-J: main entrance adjacent to the red storage buildings
            • K-Z: gate entrance adjacent to the ‘McDonald’s building’
          • Access for Handicapped guests:
            • See map for details about handicap-accessible parking
            • 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
          • Each graduate is permitted to bring four guests. There are no tickets; all households will be checked in by their graduate’s name at their assigned gate
          • Guests are encouraged to distance from individuals not in their household as feasible; attendees are not required to be 6+ feet apart
          • Guests are not required to wear masks

     

    • Seating:

     

        • Guests are welcome to sit in the grandstands or to sit 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 chairs stored out of the way (behind the red storage buildings), retrievable after the event. 
        • Please: do not sit on the track; we need this space open and accessible in case of an emergency
        • Please: no coolers, no beach balls, and no pop-up tents. 

     

     

    • Other details:

     

      • Prepare for the weather: Even though we are starting the event at 10:00 AM, the weather may be warm. And, there is no shade on the field or in the stands, unfortunately. Please plan accordingly. 
        • The APTO will be selling water to those who need it. Additionally, guests are welcome to bring their own water into the event, of course.
        • Guests and grads are encouraged to wear sunscreen!
        • Guests are welcome to bring umbrellas, but they will be kindly asked to take them down at the start of the ceremony
      • Live streaming: Northborough Cable Access will live stream the event.
