Ticket distribution will be as follows: 

In the event of an OUTDOOR ceremony taking place in Walt Snyder Stadium (fair weather):

Each senior will receive six (6) Outdoor tickets.  Either BLUE tickets (HOME) OR GRAY tickets (VISITOR) for the outside ceremony.  These tickets are marked HOME or VISITOR to direct you to the side of the stadium that your graduate will be seated.  Additional tickets for outside stadium seating are available upon request. 

Families needing additional tickets for the outdoor ceremony email Hannah Gessner at hgessner@crsd.org.  You will receive a link to a google request form, the form must be (returned) submitted by June 1, 2024.

 In the event of RAIN, the ceremony will take place INSIDE the Gymnasium and Auditorium:

No additional tickets can be provided for indoor seating due to space restrictions. 

Each senior will receive a TOTAL of SIX (6) Indoor tickets as follows:

·         Three (3) CHERRY tickets for entrance into the GYMNASIUM that will allow 3 family members to sit in the Gymnasium and to personally observe the indoor ceremony; these 3 tickets are the only tickets that will get you into the GYMNASIUM ENTRANCE.   

·         And Three (3) YELLOW tickets for entrance into the AUDITORIUM that will allow 3 additional guests to view the ceremony via closed circuit television.  Those guests receiving the YELLOW tickets will need to enter the building by the MAIN SCHOOL ENTRANCE -- NOT THE GYM ENTRANCE.  This is to alleviate masses of people entering in one location for the indoor ceremony.
