WARREN, NJ - Be prepared. Watchung Hills graduation is scheduled for 10 a.m. Thursday June 23 and the weather forecast is calling for rain. The plan is to hold graduation outdoors if possible. The school posted the following on its website:

"The graduation ceremony is scheduled for 10 am tomorrow morning. We intend to hold the ceremony outdoors, rain or shine. Only lightning, torrential rain, or other severe weather would cause us to delay the start of the ceremony. We are watching the weather forecast very carefully and will send a follow-up email message with a revised time, if necessary. 

Though the indoor contingency plan in the PAC is unlikely, please keep your tickets. Each graduating senior already received two. No additional tickets will be provided. We will run a live video of the indoor ceremony in the south auditorium and the north cafeteria for additional guests. It also should be available online through our website.

Tomorrow morning, students should report to Gym 7/8 at 8:30 am. Feel free to drop off students before parking your car. Students will not be allowed to drive to school because we simply cannot accommodate all the cars. Please help us enforce this rule, so we have enough parking for parents and guests. Please carpool, if possible. We will provide a shuttle service from Mountain Avenue to the north parking lot area behind the school.

We will have a designated parking area on campus for vehicles that have a New Jersey DMV-issued license plate or placard for persons with a disability. We are not providing placards. We also will have golf cart shuttles available to assist folks with travel between a drop-off area in the back parking lot by the JV baseball field and the stadium. Special seating is available for folks who cannot climb the bleachers at the stadium. Because of space limitations, only one person can sit with the individual with a disability in the designated area behind the graduates. All other family members and friends must sit in the stands.

We look forward to a dignified and memorable ceremony. Thank you."
