Participation

Participation in the commencement exercises is a privilege and as such comes with certain expectations.  Among these expectations are:

  • Seniors must have met all academic requirements for graduation.
  • Seniors must have settled all accounts with the Finance Office.  This includes all school fees, fines, Senior dues, and obligations, including parking tickets. 
  • Seniors must attend all graduation rehearsals.
  • As a reminder, all participation is contingent on adherence to the Students Rights and Responsibilities (SR&R) and all school rules. 
  • Seniors your prom is May 18 which will be a wonderful event.  Should a senior come to the prom under the influence of alcohol or other illegal drugs this would result in the individual not being allowed to walk for graduation. 

Tickets

Due to limited seating at Constitution Hall, each graduate will receive six (6) guest tickets. Graduates do not need a ticket.  Tickets will be distributed at the rehearsal.  Should you need special seating for someone disabled, please contact Nancy Schultz at 703-287-2830 to arrange for special accommodations.  Each disabled guest will need a ticket that will count toward the six-ticket (6) limit.

We realize that some graduates may need more than six (6) guest tickets, while others may need fewer tickets.  Therefore, we request your cooperation in working together to balance the requirements for seats among the families of the Langley community.  If you need an extra ticket or if you have a ticket to spare, please contact your friends and neighbors or consult the Langley Student Directory for the names of other graduates.  Extra tickets will not be made available through Langley High School.  Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
