    We’re holding this year’s important milestone at Federal Way Memorial Stadium. We’re also making graduation as close as it can be to a typical graduation with an in-person experience, while following social distancing and other safety measures.

    Our plans are based on phase 2 guidelines for venue capacity, social distancing and other safety measures which will also offer greater stability. This means commencement ceremonies will be staggered throughout the day with designated groups of seniors arriving and departing during specified periods of time. Because of venue capacity, there will be a limited number of in-person staff and graduate guest attendees on site at a given time.

    Each graduating senior will be provided a maximum of 2 in-person tickets for family and friends to attend their ceremony at Memorial Stadium. For safety and venue capacity reasons, no other individuals will be allowed at Memorial Stadium to ensure we offer safe and socially distant ceremonies for the Class of 2021. We will be live streaming the graduation ceremonies of our seniors walking this year!

    It will take us working together to ensure prompt arrival and departure for a memorable experience. This also means for safety reasons, any post- graduation celebrations will need to take place away from school district property. We appreciate your cooperation and understanding! In the coming days, we will continue to fine tune our plans and provide updates.

    Memorial Stadium is located at Federal Way High School at 1300 S. 308th St. Federal Way, WA 98003. Free parking is available. We’ll be following strict guidelines to limit parking to in-person ticket holders only.
