As we begin the final weeks for seniors at Glenelg High School, there is important information that you need to know for the 2018 Commencement Program on May 30th, 2018 at 4:00 at Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, MD.
There have been major changes to the parking at Merriweather Post Pavilion due to the ongoing construction. All HCPSS schools have been asked to park in designated lots to help ensure a smoother entrance and exit for all commencement ceremonies taking place throughout the day. Merriweather and their parking team have designed this map to help with the flow of traffic and to make for a quick and speedy exit.
Please see the diagram here to see where you should park for the 2018 Glenelg High School Commencement Program ONLY.
Howard County Police will be directing foot traffic to help all guests to and from Merriweather. Parking attendants will be in the designated lots to help ensure smooth and efficient parking.
We understand that the parking situation is not ideal, but in order to fit all of our guests and have our HCPSS ceremonies in a larger venue, we must abide by these parking regulations designated by Merriweather Post Pavilion. We are at the mercy of Merriweather Post Pavilion and their continued construction.
We are excited to be able to continue the tradition of streaming all high school commencement ceremonies live on the HCPSS website at www.hcpss.org. If you have family that are unable to attend they can watch the graduations live! On-demand viewing also will be available following each ceremony.
You can also order graduation DVDs online now and until June 15. This is a change from previous years when purchasing was available for several months after graduations.
In addition, all graduation-related information, including DVD details and parking maps for each ceremony, can be found on the HCPSS site at http://www.hcpss.org/commencements/.
