Plans for Outdoor Graduation 2019
All 2019 graduation ceremonies will take place at College Boulevard Activity Complex (CBAC), located at 11031 S. Valley Road. Olathe Northwest High School, directly across Lone Elm Road from CBAC, will serve as the indoor facility for all graduations in the event of inclement weather. The graduation schedule will be:
If weather indicates a need to move indoors, that decision would be made three hours before each ceremony and ALL will take place at Olathe Northwest High School. Notices would be sent via the Blackboard communication system to parents and posted on the district website and social media sites. There will be NO message if outdoor graduation will go on as planned.
All seniors will be allocated FIVE of graduation tickets to be used ONLY if graduation is moved indoors to Olathe Northwest’s gymnasium. Overflow seating will be available in the auditorium at Olathe Northwest with a video stream. We encourage parents to bring their allotted tickets to either location of graduation.

Tickets have been distributed to the seniors Thursday and Friday this week before and after school and during Eagle Halftime. Please check with your student to ensure they got the tickets. WE WILL NOT REPLACE ANY LOST TICKETS!!!! If your student has not pick up their graduation tickets please make sure they come to the from office next week.
