Please be aware that your graduate could be seated in a different row/seat on graduation day than was originally assigned due to absentees and non-graduates. 


The program should last just under two hours.  Please make arrangements with your graduate to determine where you will meet after graduation with respect to the entrance of the arena. Balloons, noise-making devices and umbrellas are not permitted in the arena as they obstruct the viewing and hearing of the other guests.  If available, Riverview yearbooks will also be sold at graduation for $90.00.  A check can be made out to Riverview High School.

All cell phones must be on silent inside Robarts Arena.  




Young men and women of Riverview are required to wear business casual attire. (Such as: a white or light-colored dress shirt with an appropriate necktie, a dress, or a skirt and a blouse).  If wearing dress slacks students are also required to wear dark dress slacks, dark dress shoes, and dark socks.  Jeans, shorts, T-shirts, flip-flops, and sneakers are not allowed.  Shoes with low heels or flats are required (be aware of the steps and stage that you will have to negotiate).  


Note:  Failure to meet the dress code outlined above could result in the student being prohibited from participating in the graduation ceremony. Students will be checked for appropriate attire prior to being admitted into Robarts Arena.


Videos And Photographs:    


Please be considerate of all the graduates and the flow of the ceremony if taking your own photographs, keeping the aisles clear.  Graduation pictures can be taken in front of the complex. At the conclusion of the ceremony, please remain seated until all graduates have exited the arena.

All of us at Riverview High School are very proud of this special group of young men and women.  We expect great things from them in the future.  Let’s make this a special day to remember.  If your student does not plan to be at graduation, please advise Michele Fulmer by calling Riverview, 923-1484, Ext. 64241.
