WARSAW — Warsaw Community Schools will host an in-person commencement ceremony for the Class of 2022 at 7 p.m. Friday, June 3, at the Tiger Athletic Complex (TAC) on Fisher Field.
This is the third year for an outdoor commencement ceremony. Organizers have a plan in place to address logistical considerations such as parking, arrival time, procedures, and seating arrangements. With the assistance of the City of Warsaw Police Department and school resource officers, graduation attendees may arrive on campus from SR 15 or Logan Street points of entry and will be directed by officers to designated parking lots. There will be no parking permitted in Tiger Circle.
Graduating seniors are to report to the Tiger Den through Door #29 at 6 p.m. Ticket holders will be directed to the main entrance gate that will open at 6 p.m. There will be no standing permitted along the fences inside or outside of Fisher Field.
WCS leaders have developed a system to accommodate families who have a member with a physical limitation and have contacted Warsaw Community High School staff prior to June 3 requesting an alternative seating arrangement. With respect to safety concerns, WCS will only permit ticket holders to remain on campus. Guests are asked to stay home if they feel unwell or if they are a high-risk individual due to health concerns.
WCS has arranged livestream options for friends and family to access the graduation ceremony video and broadcast with WIOE and News Now Warsaw. WIOE will livestream online. On the homepage, there will be a choice titled “Tiger Grad Video.” The video will be located at the top of the video section and should begin playing automatically. If not, clicking any of the video choices will launch the livestream. An audio-only production will be broadcast on WLQZ, Z93.9 FM. News Now Warsaw will also host a livestream on their Facebook page.
The Class of 2022 commencement ceremony is expected to be one and a half hours long. At the close of the event, the main gate and the visitor’s gate will be opened.
