Please carpool whenever possible. You will receive a map and instructions with your seating tickets for spectator parking.


Due to the number of people attending graduation, please plan to arrive early. Each Graduate will receive between 4-6 field seating tickets (depending on number of graduates). If you are not going to use all your field seating tickets please share with others. There is plenty of General Admission seating in the bleachers also. The gates will open at 6:00 pm. We ask that everyone is seated by 7:45 pm so we may begin promptly at 8:00pm. Gate will close at 7:45pm until the Graduates have taken the field then be re-opened. Please be respectful and be on time. If any of your guest will be attending with a certified service animal please contact Mrs. Shockley at 775-727-7737 ext. 3032, so we may make seating arrangements for them for the safety of the service animal.


No outside food or drink will be allowed. Water will be sold for $1.00 on the premises as a school fundraiser.

This is a formal event for our seniors; therefore, we are asking people to remain seated during the ceremony at all times. This includes young children. They are not allowed to run around on the field. If you are bringing small children please be sure they are able to sit for the entire ceremony. Be considerate of all in attendance by remaining seated and courteous throughout the ceremony. Professional pictures will be taken during the ceremony.

We will return July 24th to continue handouts if needed. Diplomas will be released to graduates only unless previously requested by Graduate for a family member to pick up.


If you "borrowed" a cap and gown from the high school - you must return it when you pick up your diploma. If you purchased a cap and gown and would like to donate it back to PVHS for future use please do so when you pick up your diploma.                                                         Donated gowns have made it possible for many financially challenged graduates to walk.
