Letter to Graduating Seniors and Their Parents

Schenectady High School Graduation Update!

Greetings Class of 2022 Students and Families: 

Our graduation ceremony is scheduled for Friday June 24th, 2022 at 9:00am on an outdoor stage on the Schenectady High School turf field.  Guests will be admitted by ticket only and graduates are required to report by 8:00am.  

 Parking on site will be challenging but we have several options:

  • We highly recommend using our continuous shuttle bus service available beginning at 7:45am from the Golub Corporation parking lot at 461 Nott St. Schenectady, 12308. Google Map Link: https://rb.gy/dc6cun

  • Limited parking will be available beginning at 7:30 in the E-Wing parking lot of Schenectady High School (enter from McClellan St.)

  • Parking in the neighborhood is discouraged due to strict parking restrictions

 Important Reminders

  • We will have seating for families on the turf field by ticket only.  Graduates will obtain up to four tickets at rehearsal on Thursday June 23rd from 11:00 - 1:oopm (rain or shine). 

  • Graduation rehearsal (6/23 @ 11:00) is required for all graduates planning to participate in the ceremony.  This is only for graduates and you must arrive on time!  You should not bring your cap and gown to rehearsal.

  • Please notify the school nurse’s office, 881-2044 option 5 as soon as possible, if any relatives or friends, require special accommodations, so arrangements can be made in advance.

  • In the event of inclement weather, we may delay the ceremony until 1pm or choose to go ahead in the rain (rain plan will be announced by 6pm on the 23rd).

  • A professional, high quality livestream of the event will be produced and a link to the live ceremony will be available on the district / high school websites that morning.

  • Water is the only beverage on the turf field. Graduates and guest must avoid wearing high or spiked heels due to the maintenance requirements of the turf field.

 We are excited to celebrate the achievements of the Class of 2022!
