DARIEN, Conn. — Darien High School will say goodbye to the Class of 2016 at its commencement ceremony Thursday.
The ceremony will be held at 5 p.m. on the Darien High School stadium field — weather permitting. If the ceremony is held outdoors, attendees will not need tickets and seating will be unlimited.
Gates will open at 4 p.m. and seating will be on a first-come, first-served basis. The school asks graduating seniors to report to the South Gym at 4 p.m. for robing and final preparations.
In case of rain, the graduation will be moved indoors to the auditorium and an announcement will be made on the school website by noon. Attendees would be required to use the two tickets provided to each student in the event of rain.
A professional photographer will be at the ceremony and will make photos available online a few days after the ceremony.
The police department will close High School Lane and Nutmeg Lane, so all traffic must enter through Noroton Avenue. Parking will be tight, so the school advises attendees to budget extra time and carpool if possible.
Handicap-accessible parking will be located in the lower parking lot near the stadium field.
A reception will be held for all graduates, families and guests in the main cafeteria immediately after the ceremony.
