The Sheldon Community Center parking lot is designated for handicapped parking only. Do not park in the Market of Choice/Bi-Mart parking lot or you may be towed.  Family carpooling or alternative transportation is encouraged.

All graduates driving themselves must park in the Monroe Middle School parking lot at 2800 Bailey Lane.  We will provide a shuttle bus for our graduates which will run every 10 minutes from 5:00-5:30pm and drop students off in the Sheldon Community Center parking lot.  Students can ride the shuttle or walk from Monroe if they choose to.  We will also provide a shuttle bus after the ceremony which will pick them up in the Sheldon Community Center parking lot to take them back to their cars.

Students can park in the Sheldon parking lot for the rehearsal during the daytime.  They should not park in the community center during the rehearsal.  They may get towed.

Student Attire:  Students should dress nicely as they would for a nice restaurant or event. Students will be sitting on the metal bleachers and will be walking up and down the metal stairs and standing in line so please wear flat comfortable shoes. We encourage students to wear their IB stoles and any other honor cords they’ve received if they would like to.

Photos:   Northwest Exposures will be taking a photo of your student after they cross the stage which will be available for you to purchase.

Eugene IHS Diploma:  To earn the honorary Eugene International High School diploma, students must complete grades eleven and twelve in Eugene IHS with passing grades, complete three years of world language study, complete the CAS requirements (Creativity, Activity, Service), and satisfy requirements for high school graduation.  If a student has not fulfilled all requirements for the Eugene IHS Diploma at the time of our graduation ceremony their diploma will not be in their cover on graduation night. If there is a mistake or a delay in record keeping please contact the Eugene IHS secretary on your campus as soon as possible after graduation night to get the records cleared and to pick up your diploma.

Yard Signs:  4j has yard signs available at the host schools for senior families.  There is one for Eugene IHS on each campus.  Contact your campus if you would like one.

Congratulations to all of our graduates and we wish you the best on wherever life takes you!
