We are excited to see you tonight for graduation! We will move forward as planned and can’t wait to celebrate.


In the Event of Rain

Our hope is that we will be able to hold graduation Thursday at 6:30 p.m. at Pioneer Stadium as originally planned. If necessary due to weather, we will make a decision by 2 p.m. Thursday.

Rain is also predicted for Saturday. If we need to use the scheduled rain date of Saturday at 10:30 am and rain is expected, we will make a decision by 8 a.m.

Should we need an alternate plan, we will move graduation to the Meridian campus on Tuesday, May 25 during the school day. Due to space limitations, family and friends would be asked to watch Meridian’s Facebook Live broadcast at facebook.com/meridiantech.edu. We will provide more details if this option becomes necessary.


Arrival
Students need to arrive at Stillwater High School’s Pioneer stadium no later than 6 p.m. and find a seat on the field within their program. The ceremony starts promptly at 6:30 p.m. Pioneer Stadium is located next to the high school on North Boomer Road.
