GRADUATION REHEARSAL INFORMATION

Terrell High School will host a mandatory graduation practice with seniors on Friday, May 26 at 8:00 AM at Memorial Stadium to review graduation ceremony procedures including arrival times, ceremony sequence and dismissal information. Students will not be allowed to wear heels at the rehearsal nor at the graduation ceremony. Flats or wedges are required.

ENTRANCE INFORMATION

Students:
Students will report at 6:00 PM.  As a reminder, students will not be allowed to wear high heels at graduation. Only flats or wedges will be allowed on the stadium turf.  

Staff Members:
Staff members assisting with graduation are asked to report at 5:45 PM so as to be ready to greet students as they arrive. 

Guests:
The stadium will open to the public at 6:30 PM. Guests may enter the stadium at the main entrance.  Tickets are not required for entrance.  At no time - before, during or after the ceremony - will parents and family members be allowed on the turf to take photos.

GUEST & TICKET INFORMATION

Terrell ISD is not limiting the number of guests that may attend graduation at Memorial Stadium. Guests may sit anywhere within the seating area and will NOT need a ticket for entrance.

Should inclement weather occur, graduation will be held at the Performing Arts Center and, due to limited seating, a set number of tickets will be available per student.

STADIUM HOUSE RULES

To ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for all graduation attendees, the following guidelines and policies will be in place (failure to follow these guidelines may result in immediate removal from the graduation venue): 

  • No outside food or open containers will be permitted.

  • All bags must be clear to ensure the safety and security of our guests. If a guest requires a diaper bag for their child, the diaper bag will be screened prior to admittance.

  • Tailgating is not permitted.

  • Guests may not walk onto the stadium turf at any time - before, during or after graduation. 

PHOTOGRAPHY

Photographers will be on site to take photos.  A photo will be taken as the graduate receives his/her diploma and again once he/she exits the stage. The photos will be posted on the Terrell ISD Facebook page approximately one week after graduation.

Three photo booths will also be available outside the stadium for families to take pictures with their graduates once the ceremony concludes.  At no time will parents be allowed onto the turf to take photos with their graduating seniors.

DISMISSAL

Graduates will participate in a recessional and will exit the field near the scoreboard where families can then meet them. At no time - before, during or after the ceremony - will parents and family members be allowed on the turf to take photos. Three separate photo booth areas have been arranged outside and underneath the stadium to allow families to take pictures with their graduates once the ceremony concludes.
