1. Weather permitting, graduation will be held outside at the Canton South Brechbuhler Stadium at 7 p.m. Each senior will receive five tickets for the graduation ceremony. Attendees will be seated in the stadium in a socially-distanced manner.

2. In the event of inclement weather, graduation will be moved to the Canton South Red Ash Gymnasium in two sessions (6 p.m. or 8 p.m.) based on the graduate’s last name. Seniors will only receive two tickets, and seating will be socially-distanced.
