The commencement ceremony at Monticello High School. will now be held at 7 p.m. at Monticello High School Memorial Stadium. With potential rain and thunderstorms in the forecast for later in the night, the district wants to be sure to give our graduates and families enough time to enjoy the ceremony outdoors at our beautiful Memorial Stadium. The forecast for the evening hours calls for perfect weather, and we can not wait to showcase our Class of 2019 in our stunning outdoor setting.
With commencement beginning at 7 p.m., the gates will open at 6 p.m. for families and friends. Graduates are asked to arrive to Monticello High School at 6:15 p.m.
As a reminder, families can find parking available in the West parking lot, East parking lot, Eastview parking lot and at Little Mountain elementary school. Gates will be open to the public on both sides of the stadium for ease of access. Handicap parking will be available in front of Memorial Stadium and can be accessed from the West parking lot. A limited amount of handicap seating is available on the field - if a person wishes to access this seating, we ask that they just bring one companion onto the field with them to keep seating available for others. Families with elderly members attending the ceremony are asked to arrive early if possible, since there will be no other reserved seating, and nearby parking will be limited. MHS parking lots will NOT be accessible via Chelsea Road tonight. Access will be available via School Blvd. to keep traffic flowing smoothly. Chelsea Road will be accessible for exiting tonight’s ceremony.
The Monticello High School Tech Team will be producing a live stream of tonight’s ceremony for those that are unable to attend tonight’s ceremony. When that link becomes available, we will share it on the district website (www.monticello.k12.mn.us) and on social media.
