Senior Night Protocol:
**Senior Nights may differ slightly by Sport/Activity and Location but should stay within these general guidelines.
Senior Night at Scarborough should be a wonderful celebration of a student’s four year effort in meeting the obligations of a rigorous curriculum while devoting the time required for participation in high school sports. Because this effort requires the support of the entire family, we want to include the parents of student-athletes in this celebration.
To help ensure a well-managed event, this process has been established as a “check list” of those items that are part of the celebration. Although this may not be a complete list, it is offered as a guideline of those aspects of a senior night that have become part of a traditional celebration.
