Saturday, May 12th

UPDATE: The Nicholas School Recognition Ceremonies for students and their families scheduled for today, May 12, 2018, will proceed as planned in the Chemistry Lot. Rain is expected, but no extreme weather.

There is a chance we will have rain for tomorrow’s Recognition Ceremonies for the Nicholas School’s 2018 graduates and their families.

If it is rain only, the ceremonies WILL go on as planned under the tent in the Chemistry lot. Guests should bring umbrellas and rain gear for the walk from the tent to the reception and their car.

In the case of severe weather, it is possible the ceremonies will be cancelled or modified for students and their families. We will make a final “weather call” no later than 7:00 a.m. on Saturday, May 12, and post it on the school’s website and social media channels.
