Event Description

Mayo Civic Center is the host to all three RPS High School Graduations. This is a busy day around the center due to construction, the Med City Marathon and downtown farmers market. Please read the following information carefully and allow plenty of time to park and walk to the center.

Graduation Rehearsal for ALL schools: Due to lack of parking and the potential for congestion, Rochester Public Schools will be busing students from their high school to graduation rehearsal on Friday, May 24th. Students should not drive directly to the Mayo Civic Center. Buses will be departing each high school and students will receive report times from their school. 

John Marshall High School (11 AM): All JM graduates are required to ride the district-provided buses from JMHS to the Mayo Civic Center on Saturday morning. Students shall arrive by 9:30 am, buses will depart from JM at 9:45 AM sharp. Busses are being provided because there will be congestion during the Med City Marathon children's’ events occurring outside of the Mayo Civic Center. Students should arrive to JM on Saturday morning with their caps and gowns. After the ceremony, return busing will be available but not required for graduates.
