  • Students must follow the attire guidelines listed above to be able to participate in the senior walk.

  • Students must have their caps, gowns, tassels, and stoles for the walk.  For safe keeping, these will be given to parents directly following the walk.

  • Please note that it is of extreme importance that parents take all Graduation regalia with them following the walk as we do not have extra items and would hate for students to be missing something for the actual Graduation Ceremony.

  • Students will walk the halls as the whole student body lines the building to say goodbye to our seniors.  

  • Guests should plan to use the main parking lot and enter through the main entrance.  You will be directed where to stand upon your arrival.

  • Guests are welcome to make signs to hold as you cheer for your senior.  

Graduation Practice – Thursday, May 18, at 10:15am (seniors only-report to gym)

  • Practice will conclude around 12:30pm.

  • Feel free to bring yearbooks to sign as well. 

  • Seniors will sign for graduation tickets (12 each) at practice. These tickets will not be replaced if lost. Seniors are encouraged to give their parents the tickets as soon as possible for safekeeping. 

  • If you have tickets that you are not using, you are welcome to share those with another graduate should you choose.  We do not require unused tickets to be returned to the school and therefore, cannot assist graduates with securing other unused tickets.

ELCA Class of 2023 Graduation 

Friday, May 19, at 7:00pm (Contingency Plan – Saturday, May 20, at 10:00am)


Graduate Reminders 

  • Arrive by 6:00pm sharp. 

  • All graduates should enter the activities center entrance and report directly to the gym. Only graduates are permitted to enter the building. 

  • Please park in the north parking lot (playground side).  DO NOT park in the spots closest to the portico.

  • All diplomas must be picked up in front of the weight room at the conclusion of the ceremony.  

  • In addition to following the dress code indicated below, be sure to bring your cap (with name written inside - no decorations on cap) and tassel, gown (pressed or steamed), stole (received with cap and gown) and honor stoles/cords if those apply to you.  We do not have extras so if you are missing an item, you will have to contact a family member to bring it for you.  

    • Dress Code (adhere to school requirements regarding dress policy)


  • Clean shaven and follow hair guidelines according to the ELCA Student Handbook.

  • Dark blue or black dress pants.

  • Dark dress shoes (no sandals or tennis shoes).

  • Dark socks.

  • White collared shirt and tie.

  • No earrings or gauges.


  • Appropriate length of skirt/dress (make sure length does not exceed length of graduation robe).  Remember the dress needs to be modest and cover both shoulders.

  • Dress sandals or dress shoes – Please no flip flops, clogs, or casual shoes.  We recommend that you not wear spike style heels since they will be difficult to walk in across the football field.


  • No nose rings, sunglasses, or cell phones are allowed on the field (we will be taking these up before we line up and they will be returned to you when you pick up your diploma).

  • Decorated caps will not be allowed in the ceremony.

  • Graduates are permitted to wear masks during the ceremony if desired.  They will have to show that they are clean shaven or do not have a nose ring on underneath.  

  • Graduates not following the dress guidelines as indicated above will not be allowed to participate in the ceremony.

Ticket Holder Reminders 

  • Only ticket holders will be permitted to enter the stadium gates.  Tickets are needed for each person (including children – the only exception are infants in a carrier).

  • Guests who hold bleacher tickets (yellow tickets) will enter by the ticket booth and go directly into the stadium stands. For social distancing purposes, all bleacher guests are asked to spread out to allow adequate room between families. 

  • Guests who hold field level tickets (white tickets) will walk to the left of the ticket booth and enter near the track.   Field level seats are assigned to a table for each graduate.  A map of the field will be sent out closer to Graduation so that you can easily find your seat.

  • Please inform your guests of where they should be seated ahead of time to help avoid any confusion.  It is very beneficial to tell your field level guests their table number ahead of time.

  • Guests are not allowed to leave the stadium and re-enter.  Please inform your guests of this policy.  

  • Anyone who does not hold tickets for graduation can sit in the grassy area across from the ticket booth (outside of the stadium gates). This area is first come, first served, and cannot be saved ahead of time. Overflow guests are asked to bring a chair or blanket to sit on. 

  • Anyone arriving at or after 7:00pm will have to wait until the end of the processional to be seated.

  • Graduation will be staffed with health professionals and bottled water will be available at the medical tents.

  • The Graduation ceremony is an optional, dignified, solemn ceremony for seniors, their families, and guests.  We ask that every senior, parent, and guest participate in a manner that will allow each graduate to have his/her special moment on stage. 

  • Every graduating senior and his/her family and guests deserve to see his/her senior walk across the stage to hear his/her name called as he/she receives a diploma; therefore, items such as air horns, cowbells, and other noisemakers which may interfere with hearing a graduate’s name called are prohibited.  

  • Any graduate and/or guest who creates a disturbance or insists on being a distraction to others will be escorted out of the stadium by security personnel.

  • Parking for our handicap guests will be directly in front of the Life Center.  Please do not park in this area unless you have a handicap tag.  There will be a golf cart available to take handicap guests to the ticket gate.

  • Guests are not allowed to decorate tables or use the center aisle for any reason during the ceremony.  Balloons are not allowed on the field.

  • Each graduate is eligible to receive a Graduation DVD (free of charge).  We will send an email out when they are ready, and you can pick it up at the front desk.
