Attention Seniors- Graduation Info

classof2018Graduation rehearsal will be held at 8 a.m. on June 8th at the Mullins Center. All graduating seniors must attend this rehearsal, which will last approximately two hours. Please enter the Mullins Center via the ground level doors on the west side of the building (facing the town of Hadley) for rehearsal. Lot 67 is available for rehearsal parking.

ARHS graduation will be live streamed on June 8!  You can access the full ceremony here.

IMPORTANT Parking-related Information:

Below is the link to all the UMass parking lots. The main lots by the Mullin Center[#25] are currently closed.

Instead, lots 12. 30 and the parking garage are open for our use during graduation.

Doors will open at 5:00 p.m. for the ceremony. Handicapped parking is provided in the metered lot on the N/E corner of the building.

Balloons of any kind are prohibited in the building. This includes mylar and helium ones as they interfere with lighting and equipment.

New This Year – The Mullins Center has installed metal detectors for the safety of its users. Mullins staff will be available to assist you at all entrances. In order to preserve the dignity and ceremony of the occasion, we ask that parents and guests remain in the seating area during the ceremony, and not climb down onto the floor of the stadium. After the ceremony, the barriers will be removed so families can reunite.

Since the Mullins Center staff must break down the facility set-up that evening, we ask that you not loiter on the floor.

After Graduation Day: Due to a policy change senior folders (including academic, health, and guidance) must be held at ARHS for 3 years after graduation. Therefore, we are unable to release these records to graduates as we have in the past. Class of 2018 folders can be picked up by the graduate starting in July 2021 and will be destroyed in July 2023.

Computer Accounts: As graduation nears, some of you may wish to take your Google data with you. The following links will help guide you in transferring or archiving your data.

Please note that accounts will be turned off at some point this summer, so please don’t wait to archive or transfer your data.
