  • The Coliseum will no longer allow seat saving. Commencement seating for families is on a first-come, first-served basis;
  • There are no reserved seats, except for the graduates and special commencement guests invited by the school districts;
  • Prohibiting the following items in the Coliseum: balloons, beach balls, silly string, bubbles, glitter, frisbees, signs/banners, tripods/monopods/selfie sticks, artificial noisemakers (air horns, bullhorns, whistles, etc.), and confetti/confetti cannons, laser pointers and weapons of any kind;
  • Outside food and drinks will be prohibited, and limited concessions will be available for purchase for all ceremonies;
