DHS Graduation Ticket Information

  • The 2018 Deerfield High School commencement will take place at 5:00 pm on Wednesday, May 30 at Ravinia Festival.

    Each graduate automatically receives five tickets to use for family/friends. The graduates themselves do not need to use a ticket for the ceremony.

    We expect to have a limited number of extra tickets available. To request additional ticket(s), please email a request to dhsgradtix@dist113.org.

    Please be sure to indicate the graduate’s name in the request.

    Beginning March 3, we will grant all of the first or single ticket requests that we can. Once all first/single ticket requests have been filled, we will move to meet the second ticket requests. In turn, once the second ticket requests are filled, we’ll look to fill any third ticket requests. ...and so on until we have exhausted any extras available.

    You will receive email replies indicating your ticket request confirmation no sooner than March 2. Later emails will be sent as additional requests are filled.

    Tickets are only distributed to the graduates themselves. They will receive them (and any additional tickets granted) at the rehearsal on the morning of the ceremony day (May 30). Know that we do not send or distribute tickets directly to families.

    Please also know that we live stream (and record) the ceremony live over the internet. The same recording will remain available for viewing through the summer. This presents another option for families who have loved ones who cannot travel or attend the ceremony in person.

    For any questions regarding graduation, please contact Ken Williams, Assistant Principal at kwilliams@dist113.org.
