Cap and Gown Information
Dear Parents/Guardian of a Graduating Senior,
On June 4, 2015 at 1:00 p.m. Dominguez High School will be hosting their Class of 2015 Commencement Ceremony. Compton Unified School District will not require students participating in the commencement ceremony to purchase a cap and gown. These items will be provided to any student that does not wish to purchase a cap and gown as a keepsake.
Students who choose the option of borrowing a cap and gown must return items at the conclusion of the commencement ceremony. If you have already purchased a cap and gown and desire a refund, one will be provided.
All seniors will receive a form that needs to be completed for the use of cap and gown for the 2015 commencement ceremony. Please complete the attached form and indicate your preference and return it to the main office at Dominguez by Tuesday, June 2, 2015 at 3:00 p. m. Please return the form even if you plan to keep the items.

Dear 12th Grade Parents and Guardians:
The Dominguez High School commencement ceremony will take place on Thursday, June 4 at 1:00 at the Stub Hub Center, 18400 South Avalon Boulevard, Carson. We are proud of our graduating class, and look forward to seeing you and your family at the event. In order to make sure the event runs as smoothly as possible, I’d like to share with you the following notes.
On Tuesday June 2, and Wednesday, June 3, seniors will report to their first period at 8:30 a.m., and then proceed to graduation practice in the gymnasium. Graduation practice will conclude at approximately 12:11, and the students will then eat lunch as usual. After lunch, students will be dismissed. Caps and gowns will be distributed on these days as well.
On Thursday, June 4, seniors should report to school at 10:30 with their cap and gown. Per District rules and regulations, students will then be transported from Dominguez to the Stub Hub Center and back again in buses. They will be released to your families upon arrival back at school, not at Stub Hub Center. Grad Night festivities will be held this year at Magic Mountain, with buses departing school at 7:30, and returning approximately 6:30 am.
You should also be aware that students will march in the stadium by height and then be seated; therefore, names will not be called alphabetically.
We value your comfort and would like you to plan for the possibility of a hot, sunny afternoon. Stub Hub Center does not have shade for spectators or participants, and stadium staff have asked that spectators refrain from bringing in umbrellas or other shade devices.
There are no tickets to this event; families are free to bring as many members as they wish. However, please ensure that you park in the Stub Hub Center parking lot, and not the adjoining Cal State Dominguez Hills parking lot. Stub Hub staff have also asked that visitors refrain from bringing balloons or confetti inside the stadium. These may be left in the car, but families in the past have found that the heat tends to deflate the balloons over the course of the afternoon. You may wish to pick these items up after the ceremony.
We look forward to a wonderful afternoon and will see you there. If you have any questions, please call Mr. Striegl, our graduation coordinator, at 562-630-0142.
