  • Instructions for Students

    • Do not bring in cell phones. They will be confiscated. Those confiscated will be available for pick up at South Gwinnett High School after Memorial Day.

    • The only items seniors may bring into the arena are cap, gown, and one car key.

    • If other items are brought in they will be collected and can be picked up at the school during the week following graduation.  This includes cell phones. We recommend leaving all other belongings at home or in your car to save you the time of having to retrieve them from school at a later date.

    • Please do not wear your gown in; simply drape it over your arm. You can put on the gown after you go through security.

    • Before graduation, you should remove your cap and gown and hang it up so most of the wrinkles fall out. Only use a cool iron if necessary.

    • All students will walk into the Arena with a cap and gown in hand so that clothing can be checked.

    • Do not decorate your caps/gowns. All caps and gowns must be plain.

    • If you are worried about the pronunciation of your name at the ceremony, submit an audio file on your SGHS 12th Grade eClass page, LINKED HERE.

  • After the Ceremony

    Gas South Arena Staff and South Gwinnett Faculty will assist the graduates with exiting the floor of the arena by rows. Families need to arrange a meeting place off-site of the arena. Congregating/gathering is not allowed on arena property. Please plan to meet off-site. If you rode with your graduate to the ceremony, please meet at your car and leave after the ceremony.  If there is an issue with behavior during the ceremony from students who are attendees, they will be escorted out of the arena
