Due to inclement weather, the Olathe North Graduation has been moved from ODAC to the Olathe North Gym. Due to the change, there are a few logistical details I want to clear up.
Tickets: Due to the gym capacity you must have a ticket to enter the Olathe North gym to watch the graduation live. Each Senior was given 4 tickets for their family. We will not have any additional tickets available. Any senior who did not pick up their tickets can report to the front office at 5:00pm to pick up their tickets. Overflow seating is available on a first come first serve basis in the South Gym. The graduation will be live streamed for those guests to watch. We will have bleacher seating and chair seating on the floor.
Senior Arrival Time: Now that the ceremony is at ON, seniors do not need to report to their classrooms until 5:45pm. All readers and row marshalls please report at 5:30pm. Seniors remember: press your gown, dress appropriately and arrive on time.
Spectator Arrival Time: The Olathe North building will be opened at 5:00pm. The Olathe North Gyms will open at 5:30pm for spectator seating. To get in to the North Gym all persons must have a ticket. Overflow seating is in the South Gym.
Parking: Parking is first come first serve with the exception of our dignitaries who will be attending the ceremony. We also have very limited handicap parking at Olathe North. I would recommend dropping families at the door then parking your vehicle. Overflow parking will be located at the Johnson County Sherriff's Office at Buchanan and Santa Fe. There will be a shuttle that will run prior to graduation and after graduation.
Sorry for the last minute change, but weather got the best of us today. I know it is frustrating that only 4 family members are available to enter the North gym with a ticket. Please respect my workers at the door and understand it is not their decision to only allow 4 tickets per family. Enjoy this wonderful evening and congratulations to all the Graduates and their families.
