Graduation Ceremony Policies and Procedures

Participation in the graduation ceremony is an opportunity and is not a protected right. Participation may be denied as a disciplinary measure, or if a student refuses to comply with graduation ceremony standards established and developed at Woods Cross High School. Students who do not meet graduation requirements will not be allowed to participate in the graduation ceremony.     

Woods Cross High School maintains a tradition of a formal and dignified ceremony.  Please do not do anything that would distract from our established tradition.  We request that students wear their best dress underneath their graduation robes. Cultural or religious graduation regalia will be accepted, providing the regalia is of broadly recognized cultural or religious significance. Regalia must not be distracting to the ceremony or to the graduate. Questions regarding regalia should be directed to Mr. Mike Moss at mdmoss@dsdmail.net. The Dee Events Center does not allow balloons, confetti, or air horns. Parents wishing to honor their graduates with flowers, candy, or leis are asked to do so after the ceremony. 

 Individual photographs are professionally taken as students receive their diploma. Only ceremony participants are allowed within the ceremony area. Family members and friends are asked to stay in the seating areas. Students will return gowns and pick up their diplomas after the ceremony.    

 We appreciate the efforts of faculty, administration, staff, and parents to make the end of the year and the graduation ceremony special for graduating seniors. If you have any questions, please call the main office (801-402-4500) or the counseling office (801-402-4507).  Congratulations to the graduating class of 2024!
