Procedure for inside graduation MCHS 2018

In the event the 2018 Meade County High School Commencement Ceremony is conducted inside this year due to anticipated weather conditions, please follow these procedures.

Graduates shall report to the MCHS Cafeteria by 6:45PM on Friday, May 25 and enter through the front door at the math end.  All doors will be open at 6:30PM, family and guest shall enter through the main doors.

Each 2018 Graduate will be given four (4) tickets for family or friends to attend the ceremony in the gym. Lost tickets cannot be replaced.  The auditorium will be available on a first come basis and will broadcast a live stream of the ceremony.

Parking will be very limited at MCHS, the grass area between the high school and the vocational school will be closed due to construction work.

A shuttle service will be provided between the high school and BPS/DTW for parking for family and friends of graduates.  There will be multiple buses (regular and handicapped accessible) running between 6:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. with the last shuttle leaving at approximately 7:45 p.m..  The shuttle buses will begin returning people to their cars immediately following graduation.

Additional handicapped parking spaces, marked by cones, will be provided on the front row of the high school parking lot.   Space will be roped off in the gym and auditorium for handicapped individuals.

For those unable to attend, a live broadcast of the ceremony can be seen on

Immediately following the ceremony Graduates will exit the gym and report to pick up their diplomas in the 400 hallway.

We respectfully ask family and friends who are unable to be seated in the gym or the auditorium to make alternate arrangements to watch the live feed elsewhere off campus.  It is critical that our graduates can move easily through the hallways, before and after the commencement.

Immediately following the commencement, crews will begin setting up MCHS for Project Graduation activities.  We respectfully ask that ALL attendees, graduates, family and friends exit the building within 20 minutes after the ceremony.  The doors will reopen at 11:00PM for Project Graduation and close at Midnight.
