CHS Graduation to be held outdoors

Back To Front Page


The decision has been made.

Chesterton High School just needs Mother Nature to cooperate.

The CHS Commencement ceremony will be held outdoors, in the sports stadium, on Thursday, May 31, at 7 p.m.

Parking Info

Parking will be available in all of the lots in the Chesterton High School complex. A section of the parking area immediately north of door #34 will be designated for handicap parking only. A handicap placard or license plate will be required. The football practice field located at the northwest corner of CR 1100 N and 11th Street will also be open for parking provided there is no rain in the hours prior to graduation day.

To keep vehicles from driving over curbs and sidewalks, alternative parking will be available in the Westchester Intermediate School Parking lot, 1050 S. 5th Street, on the south side of the building. School buses will shuttle guests to the north gate of the football stadium. Following the graduation ceremony, buses will pick up passengers at the north gate of the stadium and return them to WIS. The shuttles will begin at 5 p.m. and run until 7 p.m., and will be available for the return trip as soon as the graduation ceremony ends and will run until 10 p.m.

It is anticipated that 4,000 guests will be in attendance at the graduation, with limited parking space.
