NO PRACTICE – There is no practice this year. Students will arrive at the Family Arena on July 16 and will find their name on their designated chair on the main floor of the Family Arena. Names will be in alphabetical order. PHS staff will help direct our graduates to the correct location. Graduates will need to be in their seats on the area floor no later than 6:30 p.m. There will be no formal procession this year due to social distancing guidelines established by the St. Charles Family Arena.
GRADUATION DAY – Students will wear their caps and gowns along with their stoles and any special cords they have received.
We have enough diploma covers that we no longer need students to bring their own diploma cover. Please note when you and your family enter the Family Arena you will go through metal detectors and your temperature will be taken by the staff of the Family Arena. No bags or purses or backpacks will be allowed per Family Arena guidelines.

HEARING IMPAIRED SEATING – There will be seats blocked off in Section 107 for those who are hearing impaired. The signers at graduation will face these seats.
