Graduation Update: Time Changed for Lake Gibson High Ceremony on Saturday


To our families:

Please note that the start time for Lake Gibson High’s graduation ceremony on Saturday, June 6, has been changed.

LGHS will hold graduation at 8:30 a.m. at Publix Field at Joker Marchant Stadium in Lakeland.

The ceremony was rescheduled to an earlier time to avoid any potential conflict with recent demonstrations that have been taking place in our community. We apologize for the short notice.

At this time, all other graduations are still scheduled to take place at their originally scheduled times. Please see for full details.

For each graduation, we recommend that students and guests arrive to the stadium early. Temperatures will be checked in cars as attendees arrive.

Each graduate will have their own ticket (LGHS grads will use their student ID), plus four additional tickets for family members or guests. Each ceremony will have a check-in time (provided to grads with their tickets and information) for attendees to begin taking their seats in the stadium.

Gates will open 1.5 hours prior to each ceremony, but attendees will not be able to take their seats until the designated check-in time. We are taking this precaution to help avoid people crowding.

To expedite the check-in process, grads and attendees will not be allowed to bring signs into the stadium.
