2021 Graduation Ceremony

Please join us for Southington High School’s 2021 Graduation Ceremony!


Friday June 18th on our turf field at 4:00 PM.  Rain date is 2:00 PM on Saturday June 19th.


Each family is allotted 4 tickets. No additional tickets are available.  Tickets will be distributed along with caps, gowns, and masks when seniors return their school issued laptops on either 6/17 or 6/18.  Please see our announcements on Canvas for more information. 

Families should sit in pods appropriately distanced from other families, (approximately six feet). Masks are recommended for all family members but not mandated in the bleachers if pod distancing is maintained.  Handicapped seats are available upon arrival.  If needed, please see a staff member who will direct you.

Both home and away bleachers will be utilized.  Each graduate will receive the diploma in front of the home bleachers and then proceed through the “S '' on the 50 yard line and continue towards the visitor bleachers.  Two photo stations will be set up by Art Rich so each student may be seen if families are seated on the visitor bleachers. Spectators are encouraged to bring their own water as we will not be selling refreshments. All graduates will have water provided for them. 

Parking and arrival times:

Students and their families should plan on parking in the front parking lot of the high school.  The rear parking lot will be for handicapped parking only. Overflow parking is available at the DePaolo Middle School and shuttle buses will transport to SHS.  Students should arrive between 2:30 - 2:45 and report to the auditorium lobby in their caps and gowns.  Spectator seating on the field will begin at 2:30.

Our graduation ceremony will be live streamed on the Southington High School YouTube channel.  The ceremony will be available for viewing all summer!
