Tuolumne, CA — Due to the inclement weather the Summerville High School Class of 2009 will stage its commencement ceremony in the Main Gymnasium this evening rather than at the football field.
Principal Dave Urquhart made that announcement late this morning stating that the dirt track had literally become a mud bath. In addition the grass field is soaked and the seating is so wet from the rain that it would simply be unacceptable for such a special occasion.
Urquhart adds that tickets are needed for entering the Main Gym. Overflow seating in the Small Gym (with big screen tv) will be on a first come/first serve basis.
Immediately following the commencement exercise the fireworks display will go on as scheduled at the baseball field regardless the weather.
Sober Grad Night for the seniors and the juniors who have permission slips will be held in the theatre and the classrooms in that same building. Seniors will be permitted to bring a guest of high school age.
