In anticipation of inclement weather expected later Monday night, Interim Superintendent of Schools Mr. Ralph Mayo has announced that Greenwich High School Graduation outdoors in Cardinal Stadium will begin at at 5:00 pm instead of 6:00 pm.
All scheduled events will be shifted one hour earlier.
The district has 2,100 rented chairs in lieu of the home bleachers which have been deemed unsafe and roped off.
On Friday the chairs for families were set up on one end of the football field.
As of about noon on Monday light rain has fallen. Consider bringing paper towels in case the seats are wet.
No tickets are needed to attend graduation if the ceremony is held outside.
Parking is limited at GHS. Additional parking is available at Greenwich Country Day School. Shuttle buses will run before the ceremony starting at 5:00pm.
Shuttle buses will return to GCDS for 30 minutes after the ceremony has ended.
Last month the district announced that the graduation speaker will be Rob Mathes, and Emmy winning, Tony and Grammy nominated music arranger, composer, producer and director who is a member of the Greenwich High School class of 1981.
