Commencement Ceremony


  • Weather permitting, commencement will take place on the RHS football field. 
  • In the event of rain, we will relocate the ceremony to the gym.

Graduation Schedule

  • 6:15 p.m. - The entry gates will open for seating.
  • 6:45 p.m. - All guests should be seated. Please plan to arrive early, as you may need to park a distance away. 
  • 6:55 p.m. - The graduates will line up for the processional. No guests will be allowed into the stadium or gymnasium until the processional has ended and the National Anthem has been sung. Guests who arrive after 6:55 p.m. will have to wait outside the gates until this time. 
  • 7 p.m. - The RHS graduation ceremony will begin at 7 p.m. sharp. 


  • Number of tickets
    • Each graduating senior is allowed eight guest tickets for the Richfield football field. Guests will enter the stadium from the southwest gate only. 
    • In the event of inclement weather, each graduating senior is allowed three guest tickets for the RHS gymnasium. Guests will enter the gym from the southeast gymnasium doors (door 9) only.
    • If some families do not need their eight tickets we may be able to honor requests for additional tickets, which you can request using the online form below.
  • There is no charge for graduation tickets. 
  • Should you have a family member who uses a wheelchair, walker or cannot take stairs, you can include that information in the online form below.
  • Guests must have their tickets with them at the ceremony to be allowed into the stadium/gym. Ticket takers will be at the entrances. Please be sure to distribute tickets to your guests in advance so that all family members attending have their tickets with them.
  • Students will receive their guest tickets when graduation gowns are distributed during advisory on June 1. 
    • Each graduate will be given eight tickets (five white and three red). 
    • Outdoor ceremony: All eight tickets (both white and red) will get guests onto the football field. 
    • Indoor ceremony: Only the three red tickets will get guests into the gym.

  • In order to accommodate more guests and to plan for accessible seating we are asking all families to complete this online form. Please include the number of tickets you need. If some families need fewer than eight, we can use the extra tickets for families who request them. Therefore, you can also request additional tickets on this form and we will distribute them if available. Please complete the online form by midnight on Sunday, May 29.

2022 Senior Stories

Proactive, approachable and diligent are three words that senior Bryan Herron would use to describe himself. One of his teachers, Karah Holle, agrees. “Bryan has a confident, friendly and contagious attitude. He's polite and kind. I look forward to seeing him every day!”

“Leslie can be quiet in class, but don't be fooled. She is a fearless leader. She steps up and helps other students and is even able to do so bilingually,” says her teacher, Ms. Toedter. “Leslie is an extremely hard worker and is never afraid to ask questions to further her learning. It is apparent that she cares deeply for others, and she is always kind and helpful inside and outside of the classroom.
