Expectations for Attire and Behavior at Graduation

In order to ensure that our graduation ceremony is a positive and memorable event, we are asking for your help. Graduates should dress appropriately with the required traditional cap and gown. Over the years, the behavior of our graduates has been exemplary and we are confident this behavior will continue. Please remember that each graduate deserves their moment to be recognized. Your conduct should not draw attention away from other students so each of you can have an opportunity to celebrate all of your hard work and dedication. South Glens Falls does not allow students to wear cords, sashes, or other designation accouterments that are not issued by the school district. Students may take pictures before and after the ceremony with these items, but during the ceremony they are prohibited.
