Coweta County High School Graduation Ceremonies

2018 Vals and Sals 2

On May 24 through 26, over 1,500 graduates are expected to participate in commencement ceremonies at Coweta’s three high schools.

Attendees for this year’s Commencement ceremonies at Northgate, Newnan and East Coweta High Schools are encouraged to arrive early for parking at the three campuses.

East Coweta High school – which holds its graduation ceremony at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, May 26 - is encouraging attendees to use off-site parking at Lee Middle School, Willis Road Elementary School and Poplar Road Elementary School that morning, beginning at 7:00 a.m., and use shuttle buses provided to and from the ceremonies. Handicapped parking is available on the main campus, but those needing it are encouraged to arrive early.

All three high schools are monitoring weather conditions before and throughout their scheduled graduation ceremonies. Every effort will be made to hold graduation in the high school stadiums as scheduled. Light rain or intermittent showers may not cancel the event.  It is recommended that all guests plan for the possibility of a light rain during graduation ceremonies.

In the event of severe weather including heavy rain and lightning, graduation ceremonies will be moved to the schools' gymnasiums.  Students have been issued a limited number of tickets to accommodate guests in these circumstances. Attendees must show those tickets for entrance.

All three high schools will also provide live-streaming services and locations in such an event.  Northgate High School and East Coweta High School will provide alternate location on-campus with commencement programs live-streamed.
