GCS announces ticket allocations for graduating seniors

When graduating seniors walk across the stage at Bon Secours Wellness Arena from June 1-4 (2021 Commencement Events Information), they will do so with a larger number of family members in the audience than last year! This year, each graduate will be allocated four, six or eight guest tickets, which is determined by the number of graduates from each high school.  For example, a small high school that has fewer graduates and, therefore, takes up less space inside BSWA will be able to accommodate up to 8 guests.  A medium-sized high school can allow up to six guests at the arena and still maintain social-distancing between families, while the largest high school, Mauldin High, can accommodate up to four guests per graduate while maintaining proper distancing.  Guests will be seated at pods of four or six chairs.  Each pod will be separated by six feet.

Bon Secours continues to follow CDC guidance for distancing and COVID protocols. Specific directions related to masking, arrival times, and parking will be communicated closer to the graduation dates.

Individuals who are COVID-positive or on quarantine will not be allowed to attend graduation ceremonies, but the events will be livestreamed for their convenience. Schools will dispense tickets to the graduates for distribution to family and friends.
