Good evening families of graduating seniors,
Hart High School’s Class of 2018 will graduate on Wednesday May 23rd, 7:00pm at College of the Canyons. We’ve got some important information to share with you about the event. The information here will also be available on our website.
Gates open at 5:00pm. Admission is by ticket only. Please, be in your seats no later than 6:45. Seats may not be held for groups or reserved ahead of time.
Accessible seating is available on the track surface, field level, on the west side of the stadium.
Parking - COC is currently under construction for a parking structure. That will make a great benefit for the future, but for this year parking will be impacted. Temporary alternate parking is available in two locations. The grass practice field above the visitor stands of the stadium is available for parking. Newhall Land is also making parking available across Valencia Blvd off of Tourney Rd. Please, see the map for location. Our local Sheriff Department will have deputies directing traffic at the intersection of Tourney and Valencia Blvd to assist in guiding our guests safely from this Newhall Land parking area into the COC parking lot across the Valencia Blvd.

Prohibited items for guests - It’s important for all families to see and hear the ceremony. Air horns, large posters, balloons and other similar items that would interfere with others experiencing the ceremony are prohibited.
Water is permitted in the stadium, but food and other drinks are not permitted.
Student Check In - Students need to check in to the East Gym starting at 5:00pm and no later than 6:00. Students should only bring their cap & gown, tassel, phone, keys, and possibly a wallet. Students belongings will be checked by security as they enter the gym to assemble.
Caps - For the ceremony students need to wear their caps without decoration. Some students have begun making a decorated covering to put on the cap for photos, then removed for the ceremony.
Leis - During the ceremony, students are only to wear flower leis, and not leis with packaged items such as candy.
Any vendors in the parking lot are not licensed, and have not been given permission to sell. They have no affiliation with our schools. Our own school groups will be selling water at the gate.
