Students participating in Grand March will be allowed only to enter through the main doors.  All students participating in Grand March will require a ticket for entry.  Your ticket reflects your specific Grand March time, so be sure to arrive within that window (see information above).  Students will need to retain their ticket to enter the dance at McNamara later that night.

The Grand March will begin with live entertainment.  Couples will cross the gym floor from right to left (when viewing the main gym floor) and each couple will be introduced as they cross over the middle of an elevated platform.  Once students have been announced they will be directed to the South Commons to meet with family/friends or leave RHS for dinner or additional group pictures on their own before arriving to McNamara at 7:30pm.
