Graduation Weather Plan

Dear graduating seniors and families,
We are making final preparations for tomorrow’s graduation ceremony and are very excited to celebrate this significant milestone in the lives our students and their families. As we all know, the only thing that is consistent with spring weather in Colorado is its unpredictability. We are keeping an eye on the forecast and will notify families by 6:00 a.m. tomorrow by email, phone and text (based on your notification settings in Infinite Campus) if there is a change in ceremony location due to weather.
If the forecast for rain or thunderstorms looks definitive, we will host the 2017 graduation ceremony in our gymnasium. As space is more limited inside, every student was given four wristbands with their caps and gowns to distribute to family members or friends to have a guaranteed seat inside the main ceremony. For any members of our community that we cannot accommodate in the gymnasium, we will be hosting a live stream of the full ceremony in our auditorium and commons area.
Families and friends can also live stream the ceremony through the Erie Tiger Network from any web-enabled device at (link will be live by 10:00 a.m. on Saturday).
This has been a tremendous year for our graduating class and I want to extend my sincerest gratitude to our students, teachers, staff, families and community who have all played an important part in the achievements we will be celebrating tomorrow.
Thank you,
Matt Buchler
Principal, Erie High School
