Tickets will be available for pick up at your school, prior to your school's graduation ceremony.
Families will be allotted 20 tickets per graduate, and tickets will be required for all guests 6 and older.
Your child's school will provide you with the exact date and time for picking up tickets.
What to Bring/Not to Bring for Graduation
Examples of items that guests may bring include:
Small "clutch" handbags or larger, clear plastic bags for belongings (note that all bags are subject to search), regular sized umbrellas, signs for graduates, balloons, flowers, and cameras.
Examples of items that guests should NOT bring include:
Air horns or items that make distracting noises, glitter or confetti of any kind, silly string of any kind, any flammatory items or weapons of any kind, any projectiles of any kind, and personal food or drink items with the exception of nutritional items for infants or small children. No drones are allowed.
After the Ceremony
When graduation ceremonies have concluded, graduates may rejoin their families in 1 of 2 ways. Graduates who drove themselves may leave the Media Center parking lot, drive to the front/main lot, and rejoin their families within or in front of AMS. For graduates who were dropped off, they may walk across the graduation field and enter the stands at a designated stairs/entry point.
NOTE: No guests will be allowed to access the graduation field at any time before or after graduation ceremonies.
All HCS Graduation Ceremonies will be live streamed and recorded. Links for each event are available on school websites as well as the HCS Graduation website.
Live Stream content will be edited for any time gaps or technical issues and a finished recording will be available for the public on the day following a school's ceremony.
For graduates/students: Graduates driving themselves may follow the provided map/directions to the Atlanta Motor Speedway infield and park in the small lot adjacent to the AMS media center. Schools' graduation teams will be there to receive graduates and direct them to the staging area.
For parents/guardians dropping off graduates: If dropping off graduates, parents/guardians may follow the provided map/directions to the Atlanta Motor Speedway infield and drop your graduate off at the AMS media center where schools' graduation teams will be there to receive graduates and direct them to the staging area. Parents are not allowed to park in the infield parking lot. Alternately, parents/guardians may park in the main AMS lot and graduates may walk down and across the graduation field to the AMS media center area where graduation teams will receive graduates and direct them to the staging area.
All guests parking in the AMS main lots should use the map provided and follow the directions of posted AMS staff. Disability parking will be prominently designated and, for guests with mobility issues, our team will assist in transporting to seating areas.
In the event that a graduation ceremony is canceled due to inclement weather, the ceremony will take place the following day, at 10:00 AM, at Atlanta Motor Speedway. Gates will open for make up ceremonies at 8:00 AM. In the event that a graduation ceremony is paused due to inclement weather, graduates, staff, and guests will be directed to specific areas in which to safely take shelter.
