Inclement Weather Plan:
Every attempt will be made to have an outdoor ceremony. If the weather forecast calls for a light rain with no thunder/lightning in the morning, we will hold graduation outdoors at 10:00 AM. In this event, please dress appropriately and bring umbrellas, in order to be comfortable during the outdoor ceremony.
If there are more severe weather conditions with thunder/lightning in the morning, we will postpone the ceremony until 1:00 PM, in an attempt to have the ceremony outdoors. However, if severe weather conditions persist and an outdoor ceremony is impossible, the graduation ceremony will be held indoors at 1:00 PM.
We will notify families by phone, listserve and the website if weather conditions cause us to implement any aspect of this inclement weather plan.
Parking & Shuttle Transportation:
On-site parking for graduation is extremely limited. Graduates and their guests are encouraged to use off-site parking and shuttle bus service to and from Hunterdon Central.
Additional information about parking and shuttle transportation will be posted closer to the date of Graduation.

Special Needs Request:
Hunterdon Central will provide accommodations for graduation guests with special needs. Please download, print and complete the Graduation Special Needs Request Form and submit it to the 11/12 House Office by Friday, June 8, if you require handicapped parking, special needs drop-off or special needs seating.
Handicapped Parking: On-site parking will be provided for individuals with handicapped plates and placards from the New Jersey Motor Vehicles Commission. A photocopy of these documents must accompany your request. Handicapped parking will be located in lot A-1, by the Fieldhouse. Limited golf cart & shuttle service will be available from this parking area to the stadium. A special blue placard to gain access to this lot will be issued to those who apply.
Special Needs Drop-Off: A drop-off site for individuals with special needs or limited mobility, who do not have official State plates or placards, will also be available. The drop-off site will be in Parking Lot A1, located behind the Fieldhouse, next to the Polytech Building. Once special needs passengers are dropped off, the driver can then park the vehicle in regular parking. Limited golf cart & shuttle service will be available from the drop-off site to the stadium. A special pink placard to gain access to the drop-off site will be issued to those who apply.
Handicapped Seating: Special seating will be provided on the Turf Field for individuals who use wheel chairs, walkers, or who have mobility issues that would prevent them from using bleacher seating. Due to limited space, only one family member may accompany and sit with individuals who require this special seating. Please note: the turf gets quite warm on hot, sunny days.
Graduation on HCTV & Graduation DVDs:
Graduation 2018 will be broadcast live on HCTV (Comcast Channel 27) on the day of graduation. The ceremony will also be rerun the week following graduation; the HCTV weekly schedule is posted here.
