• ARRIVING AT THE FORUM
• Graduates and learning coaches should arrive at The Forum by 1 p.m.
• Stop by the tables near the door to pick up your admission tickets. A-L on the left, M-Z on the right.
• In the event of rain, the tables will be located just inside the doorway.
• Before you enter the Forum, arrange an after-ceremony meeting place with your friends and family. Outside would be best, as the hallways can get crowded.
• Once you enter the Forum, PA Virtual marshals will check your tickets and offer assistance.
• Families may be seated in the auditorium.
• Graduates and learning coaches should proceed to The Green Room hallway.
• Simply, make a right at the ticket booth and follow the hallway all the way around and behind the stage.
• Once you reach the Green Room hallway, find the appropriate table to register.
• Here you’ll receive: Your seating card number and if applicable, your Honors card.
• Once you’ve registered, proceed to the Green Room. Marshals and High School staff will be there to greet you.
• In the Green Room feel free to mingle, fix your cap and gown, comb your hair, do your make-up, or whatever else you need to do to get ready for the ceremony.
• Restrooms, touch-up rooms, and the women’s locker room are located nearby. Just ask a Marshal or staff member for directions.
• Please leave any unneeded personal items at home. PA Virtual is not responsible for lost or stolen items.
• For security, The Green Room and women’s locker room will be locked during the ceremony.
• Limited locker space is available in the women’s locker room. This is first-come-first-serve. Please bring your own lock to secure the locker.

• PROCESSIONAL
• At 1:30 we’ll begin lining up.
• At approximately 1:45 we will exit the Green Room hallway and head to the auditorium entrance.
• Marshal’s will lead the processional. Just follow the person in front of you and stay in line. Remember who is in front of you. The same person should be in front of you throughout the entire ceremony.
• When we enter the auditorium, simply follow the marshal’s directions. They’ll direct you to your seat, which will match the card number you received during registration.
• Once you reach your seat, sit back, relax and enjoy the show.
• THE WALK
• When the diploma section begins, just follow directions from the marshals. Basically, you just need to follow the person in front of you.
• When you reach the stage, hand your name card to the marshal.

• Learning coaches will return to their seats
• Graduates will head to the photo booth located in the main hallway. Marshal’s will be there to guide you.
• Please be mindful of the ceremony and keep the noise down while you wait for your picture to be taken.
