NEW CANAAN, Conn. — New Canaan High School will say goodbye to the Class of 2016 at its commencement ceremony Wednesday.

The ceremony is scheduled for Wednesday at 5 p.m. on Dunning Field — weather permitting. If the ceremony is held outdoors, attendees will not need tickets.

In case of light inclement weather, the school plans to hold the ceremony outdoors as long as there is no danger of lightning. If there is a passing shower, the school may wait it out for a short time before making a final decision.

The school said that all changes to the graduation ceremony will be posted on the school district’s website by 3 p.m. June 15 and available by phone at 203-594-4000 option #1.

The ceremony’s rain date is Thursday, June 16, at 5 p.m. In that event, each graduate would be given two tickets for the ceremony held in the gym, and the ceremony would be broadcast live to the auditorium and cafeteria.

No additional tickets will be available. If needed, students may pick up tickets on Thursday, June 16, after 1 p.m.
