The O'Connor High School Class of 2019 will graduate at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, June 11 at the Alamodome, and we're excited to celebrate this important milestone in our students' lives! Here you will find all of the pertinent information about everything that needs to be done prior to graduation day and information that will assist both graduates and families the day of the ceremony.
As seniors prepare for graduation, here's a list of important things to remember including dates and deadlines: Graduation Check List. For the ceremony, the District produces a listing of all scholarships that have been awarded to O'Connor seniors. While the deadline to be included in this publication has passed, it's not too late to have the number of scholarships received and one scholarship announced at Graduation. To do this seniors must complete the senior scholarship form and turn it in at the Counselors' office as soon as possible. Seniors should include all scholarships they have been awarded, no matter if they will use them or not. Find the form here: Senior Scholarship Form. Additionally any student enlisting in the military upon graduation can have that announced by bringing a copy of their enlistment papers to the principal's secretary.
A mandatory practice will take place at 10:30 a.m. that morning, also at the Alamodome, and students should be in the area of the Alamodome A Parking Lot guard station by 10:15 a.m. Bus transportation will be provided from O'Connor TO PRACTICE ONLY, and buses will leave campus at 9:30 a.m. Students riding a bus to practice must be in the O'Connor Bus Loop and checked in at 9:15 a.m. Graduates must return to the Alamodome by 5:30 p.m. for line-up in their caps and gowns and they will enter through the loading docks as they did for practice.. At the end of the ceremony graduates will exit the Alamodome through the NE and NW metal door exits closest to Sunset Station and be able to meet their families there.
For those families and friends attending the ceremony, tickets are not required. Parking is $20 cash only in Lot C while Lot A is reserved for handicap and permit parking only. See a parking map here: Alamodome Parking. For the 6:30 p.m. ceremony, doors will be open one hour before. Please remember that all in attendance will go through a security check with wands, and only clear bags are allowed as indicated here: Clear Bag Flyer. Additionally the Alamodome prohibits the following: helium balloons, selfie sticks & tripods, wrapped gifts, signs, noise makers and weapons. On the night of June 11th, the ceremony will be live-streamed on the NISD website for those unable to attend. The link will be posted on the NISD website the day of the ceremony. Families and friends can also purchase a ceremony DVD using this form: Graduation DVD.
