Any student that still has an unpaid fine will NOT be able to enter Senior Check Out. Bookkeeping WILL NOT BE AT SENIOR CHECK OUT. You must pay fines using the above instructions.
Thursday, May 11, 2023 is the last full day of classes for seniors. Teachers will sign the Check-Out Sheet and record either a pass/fail or letter grade on the Report Card Form. Teachers WILL NOT sign either form before Thursday.
Friday, May 12, 2023 Senior Check-out is 8:20-11am in the East Gym. Both the Check-Out Sheet and Report Card Form must be fully completed before students may check out. Honor cords will be distributed to those seniors who earned honor/high honors.
Graduation rehearsal is MANDATORY. No senior may participate in the graduation ceremony unless he or she has participated in the rehearsal on Tuesday, May 23. Seniors must report to the South Gym no later than 2:30pm. Rehearsal will last until 5pm. Rehearsal may run late, so it is suggested that you do not schedule any dinners, parties, or work until after 5:30pm. Immediately following rehearsal, caps and gowns will be distributed in the North Gym. Caps and gowns WILL NOT be distributed early for any reason.
Graduation is Wednesday, May 24, 2023 at 8am. Seniors report to the South Gym at 7:00am. DO NOT BE LATE. The time allotted for the ceremony is approximately 2 hours.
Graduation tickets will be distributed at Senior Check-Out. Each graduating student receives 10 tickets for the graduation ceremony. Extra tickets are not available. If additional tickets are needed, please have students request them from friends who do not need their full allotment.
Appropriate dress is required to ensure the dignity of the graduation ceremony. Inappropriate dress will jeopardize a graduate’s participation in the ceremony. Shoes are REQUIRED.

PARKING AND SEATING
Stutler Bowl entrance gates will open at 7am on the day of graduation. Graduates should park in the South parking lot. Guest parking is available in all lots on campus. Please note, the South parking lot will close at the curve on Campus Drive at 7:30am.
Handicapped parking is available at the north end of the parking lots located at both the east and west sides of the stadium. Only a limited number of wheelchair spaces are available in both the east and west stands, so plan to arrive no later than 7:30am.
The graduation ceremony is a celebration for graduates and their families. Everyone attending deserves the opportunity to enjoy the ceremony. Excessive cheering and noise for a specific student diminishes the experience for the next graduate, so please hold your applause until the end of each diploma group. In line with District policy and State law, Cherry Creek High School reserves the right to remove any individual from graduation whose behavior or appearance serves to detract from the dignity of the occasion. All graduates and guests are expected to participate in a dignified manner. Any inappropriate behavior during second semester or at this year’s Prom may jeopardize a senior’s participation in the graduation ceremony.
In case of rain or other inclement weather at 8am, the ceremony may be postponed or possibly rescheduled. Information regarding the postponement of graduation can be found on the CCHS Website, Facebook or Twitter feed @cchsactivities. If the weather forces graduation to be rescheduled, the ceremony may be held as late as Saturday. Travel plans should be made with this scenario in mind.
Diplomas must be picked up in the North Gym within 30 minutes of the recessional. Graduates who have chosen not to participate in the graduation ceremony may pick up their diplomas in the Registrar’s Office after May 24.
Cherry Creek will be broadcasting the graduation live. Details and links will be provided at a later date.
