Commencement ceremonies will begin promptly at 9:00 a.m. at the Convention Center in Albany.  A bus will be provided for our seniors who are unable to secure their own ride to and/or from the Convention Center.  There will be a sign-up sheet in the main office in order to determine who would like to utilize this transportation.

Students who are riding the bus must report to RCS High School by 7:00 a.m.  Students who are driving or getting a ride to the Convention Center must be in their assigned Meeting Room by 8:00 am.

It will take 15 minutes to get from your vehicle to the Meeting room, so please plan accordingly.

Parking at the Convention Center- There is a $5.00 charge for anyone who wants to park in the Visitor parking lots (P2 and P3) at the Convention Center. The Madison, Cathedral and Eagle Street lots are free of charge to use and will be opened that day.  If anyone needs special parking accommodations, these are only available at the V lot (ID may be required), available spaces are limited, so it is advised that you arrive early to ensure a spot near the elevators.
