Graduation Information | Commencement Exercises
Class of 2017

University of Utah | Huntsman Center
1:00 PM

Dear Parents of Graduating Seniors and Early Graduates:

On Thursday June 1, at 1:00 p.m. Highland High School will celebrate its 59th Commencement Exercises at the University of Utah Huntsman Center.  There are no tickets required and plenty of seating will be available. 

Graduating from high school is a very important step in the life of each student.  It is a time of happiness and joy for students, their parents, their relatives, as well as the teachers and staff at Highland High.  It is also a time to reflect on the past and take a moment to look forward to the future.

Please encourage your student to clear all absences, tardies, and fines; we require these to be completed by May 25, 2017 to ensure your student’s participation in graduation.

Students should arrive at the Huntsman Center by 12:00pm to take pictures with family and friends. Line-up will begin by 12:20pm. 

On behalf of the faculty and the Class of 2017, I would like to request your assistance in helping to make the ceremony proceed smoothly. We ask that all spectators be in their seats when the processional begins promptly at 1:00pm and refrain from using air-horns, noisemakers, or other objects of distraction.  To ensure that all names will be heard, please hold all applause and cheers until all graduates’ names have been announced. We want to provide a commencement ceremony our students and community can remember with pride.

On behalf of Highland High School’s faculty and staff, I want to express appreciation to each of you for the trust, support, and confidence you have shown by allowing your daughter(s) or son(s) to be educated at Highland High School.  We extend our best wishes to all the graduates and their families.
