OLD BRIDGE HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATION INSTRUCTIONS

For questions, contact the school.

Dear Class of 2020 parents/guardians, 
 
First and most importantly I hope that this message finds you and your families safe and healthy. All districts holding a live graduation ceremony are required to submit their plans to County & State Officials for review and approval, therefore no changes or modifications can be made.  In order to adhere to current state guidelines, each graduate will be permitted 2 guests. We will be live streaming and taping the ceremony so that siblings, extended family members and friends will be able to view from home. The ceremony will be shorter than usual but will include many of the traditional components and most importantly, each student will be recognized.   

Graduation Day at Lombardi Field: No paper tickets will be issued prior to the event. Graduates and guests must arrive together at the recommended entrance to check in. All guests are required to wear face coverings. Also, temperature screenings will be conducted, and any guest with a temperature above 100.4 will not be permitted to enter. Graduates will be seated in the home bleachers and families will sit socially distanced on the field. Guests are encouraged to bring a beach chair and/or blanket since no guest seating will be provided.

Diplomas will be brought to your vehicle. In addition to receiving their diplomas, students will receive important Graduation Day information, including Lombardi Field entrance instructions, arrival times, graduate seat location and best viewing location for parents/guardians.
