Lei. If you purchased a flower lei for your student, please pick it up before the ceremony starts.
Cords/ Stoles. Only school sponsored groups with the approval from administration can wear cords or stoles.
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 500 students graduating and our stands will be filled to capacity.
Graduates report to the tennis courts at 5:00 p.m. They should be dressed in cap and gown. Students may wear flower leis during the ceremony.
Graduates may not bring any personal items or have any items in their pockets. Please make arrangements to safeguard personal possessions prior to arriving at the black top. To guarantee the safety of participants and to insure the dignity of the program, all participants are subject to search.
· Collared dress shirt, ties, dress pants. No jeans or shorts.
· Dresses or skirts.
· Graduates must wear their El Toro High School Medallion
· No high heels due to the artificial turf
· No flip-flops/rainbows.

Graduation caps may not be decorated.
Flowers and balloons are to be given to the graduate after the commencement exercises.
Students will be checked prior to entering the field to ensure that no foreign objects are taken onto the field.
Families: Air horns are not permitted and will be confiscated by security. Air horns that are used once a name is called will prevent the family of the next student from hearing their name. PLEASE BE RESPECTFUL.
Diplomas. Diplomas will be distributed immediately following the ceremony in the MPR. Students that borrow a cap, gown & tassel will need to return the items in order to pick up their diploma. If you purchase a cap, gown & tassel you do not need to return them.
**Due to capacity and fire code regulations of the El Toro Athletic Complex, only 6 tickets will be distributed to every family that has a graduate. By doing so, El Toro High School is able to fulfill its commitment of providing a safe, secure, and comfortable venue for its students and families.**
