    Graduation Tickets: 
    This year we will be issuing tickets for the Graduation Ceremony. Tickets are free, and each graduate will be given 10 tickets to distribute. Tickets will be available starting June 1st. If you do not need all 10 you can return extras or give them to another student in need. Tickets are transferable (meaning if you don’t use yours, you can give them to another grad). Students needing more tickets can submit a request starting on June 5th, and all available extra tickets will be distributed by June 10th. The SWAC bleachers have ample seats for the senior class families, and we will do our best to make sure all reasonable requests for additional tickets are granted. Seats cannot be reserved and will be first-come, first-serve when the doors open at 4:00 p.m.

    Special areas will be reserved for those in attendance needing accommodations including those in wheelchairs or those who cannot walk down the stairs. Please feel free to drive to the top of the stadium and drop off prior to parking.  

    The super long-range forecast is currently calling for temperatures in the mid-60s with a less than 15% chance of rain during our window of time. The ceremony will happen on the field rain or shine – graduates will be reminded to bring light layers to wear under their gowns. The SWAC stands only have partial covering, so check the weather report and please come prepared!   

    Driving Directions & Parking: 
    We are graduating our senior class conveniently across the street from CSIHS at the South West Activities Center (SWAC) and the address is 2801 SW Thistle St, Seattle, WA 98126. Parking is first-come, first-serve. Parking is available in the SWAC lot, and in the CSIHS lot. In addition, parking will be available along all the neighboring streets. We are NOT the only event scheduled at SWAC that day, (the WSHS graduation is immediately after ours) so please make plans to leave the SWAC afterwards to make way for the next ceremony.

    Graduation Ceremony: Graduation will start promptly at 5:00 p.m.  The soon-to-be graduates will begin walking into the stadium beginning at 4:55 p.m. Upon completion the graduates will leave the field and be available for pick-up in front of the Sealth Auditorium. The WSHS graduation is immediately after ours, so the SWAC stands will be cleared as soon as our ceremony is finished. No family members or supporters will be allowed on the field at any time. Ushers will occupy the lower level of each set of stairs to ensure that people do not come down to the bottom of the stairs to stand or take pictures.
