Graduation Tickets 2023
Each senior will be allotted 6 tickets for graduation. Four of those tickets will be maroon colored and two will be gold. All 6 tickets will be valid for admission to graduation in the stadium.
The two gold colored tickets can be used in the event graduation has to be moved into the gymnasium. They are the only tickets that will be accepted in the event of rain. Maroon tickets will not be honored.
Tickets will be distributed to seniors after mandatory graduation practice.
In order to receive tickets, seniors must:
pay all fines that are owed to Ashley High School
return their school laptop in good working condition or pay fees associated with the condition / loss of the laptop
be in good academic standing
Up to 2 tickets for handicap seating can be requested per graduate. Handicap will be stamped on the BACK of the tickets and come out of your allotment. They are not additional tickets. A google form to request tickets will be in the school newsletter in the spring.
Due to the large size of the senior class, there will be no extra tickets distributed and no opportunity to ask the administration or graduation coordinators for extra tickets. Instead, seniors who need tickets, in addition to their allotted amount, will need to ask their peers for any extra tickets that aren’t being used.
