Parking is available on campus beginning at 4:00 p.m. on June 13. The parking spots in front of the 800 building are reserved for the Board members, PTSA auction winners and dignitaries. Please feel free to park in or on the parking structure also.

Overflow parking is available at Saddleback Church in the “lower lot” which is accessible off Portola Parkway. Enter on Saddleback Parkway or Purpose Drive and turn left into the lower lot just before the pedestrian bridge. Busses (including wheelchair accessible busses) will be there at 5:30 to begin shuttling guests to Trabuco Hills High and will be available at 9:15 pm to shuttle everyone back.

Gates to the stadium will be open at 6:00 p.m. If you plan to arrive early, you may use a personal umbrella for shade until the ceremony starts. Water will be available for purchase from the stadium snack bar. To enter, you must have a ticket. Tickets are being distributed to the graduates after graduation practice on June 12.

Lei. If you purchased a lei for your student, please pick it up on your way into the stadium and hold onto it until after the ceremony. Students typically just wear them for photos.

Cords/ Sashes. Only school sponsored groups with the approval from administration can where cords or sashes.

Seating. There is no assigned seating for the ceremony. You are welcome to bring a “bleacher seat” as our bleachers do not have back rests. Please don’t bring ice chests, chairs, E-Z Ups, megaphones, or noisemakers as we have over 600 students graduating and our stands will be filled to capacity.

Handicapped Accessible Seating. We have limited handicapped accessible seating available on both sides of the stadium. Each handicapped person is able to have one guest sit with them in a chair that will be provided. If the parking lot is full and you need a handicapped seat in the stadium, please tell a parking attendant and you will be allowed drop off access in front of the stadium. We cannot guarantee handicapped parking; only drop off access after the lot is full.

Graduates report at 6:30 p.m. As a reminder, graduates will be reporting to the main gym at 6:30 to line up for the ceremony. They should be dressed in cap and gown. (No spike heels on the stadium turf.) Graduates will not be allowed to bring cell phones, purses, cameras, leis, etc. into the ceremony. Only school-sponsored and approved sashes and cords are allowed to be worn with the cap and gown.

Diplomas. Diplomas will be distributed immediately following the ceremony at tables behind the stage for one half hour after the commencement concludes.
