High School Seniors and Parents, After having assigned and given out graduation tickets to our seniors, there are a limited number of tickets remaining for graduation on May 24th, at 7pm. These tickets will be made available on a first come first serve basis to our seniors beginning at the time of this post. The senior must be the person to come to the high school office to pick the tickets up during school hours. They will not be given to any other person. The senior will have the opportunity to pick up one (1) additional pack of four (4) tickets. There will be no effort of trying to match up the ticket location to their previously received tickets. For those who do not have enough tickets for your family, ASU is providing a live link to view the graduation ceremonies. Thank you for your patience, understanding, and support of our seniors as we approach graduation day. https://youtu.be/q61SyfAMki4
