Important: Seniors will be searched prior to marching into the stadium. Leave all personal belongings at home (i.e. sunglasses, purses, cell phones, keys, and cameras).  Because students will not have access to their phones during the ceremony, plan on a meeting spot with family for when the ceremony concludes.
