Each graduate will be allowed 4 guests, and each guest will need to arrive wearing a wristband. Graduates will each be given 4 wristbands when they pick up their cap and gown on May 20. Guests will have the option of sitting in the bleachers or on the field. Seating will be in pods of 4. Guests do not need to sit with their group. Because our ceremony is outside, graduates and guests do not need to complete a Covid screener.

The Graduation ceremony will begin promptly at 8:30 am.

See this LINK to view seating options. 

ADA Seating: There will be areas available for ADA seating at Recht Field. Guests may choose to sit either in the bleachers or on the field.


We expect that graduates take the opportunity to celebrate this important achievement by dressing appropriately. Students should wear clothes and shoes that are both comfortable and look nice, in line with a dress code that aims to show respect for the graduation ceremony. Graduates are allowed to decorate their cap to display their unique personality, as long as the decorations are appropriate, respectful, and don’t distract from the ceremony.  


The ceremony will be livestreamed as well. Please share this link with family and friends unable to attend the Boulder High School ceremony:
