A limited supply of tickets will be issued based on class size, venue of the graduation, and capacity restrictions due to COVID-19.

Commencement ceremonies for JP Schools graduating classes will take place at the Pontchartrain Center, Memtsas and Yenni stadium. Grand Isle School and Fisher Middle-High School will hold their ceremonies on their own campus. Alternate inclement weather dates are reserved for graduation ceremonies at outdoor venues.
