CHS Commencement Exercises to Take Place May 24 at The Depot

            The Depot, home of the Cleburne Railroaders, will be the site of May 24 graduation exercises for the Cleburne High School Class of 2019.

            This will be the second year for CHS graduation to take place at the stadium, which last year ended with a display of fireworks. Commencement ceremonies will begin at 7:30 p.m. with gates to the stadium opening at 6 p.m. for the seating of guests attending the event. Parking lots at The Depot will open at 5 p.m.

            “We are very excited to conduct commencement exercises at The Depot again this year,” Superintendent Dr. Kyle Heath said. “We are grateful to the Railroaders and the City of Cleburne for partnering with Cleburne ISD for this very special and memorable event for our graduates, their families, and friends.”

            This year, the District will offer free shuttle service from the high school to the stadium, in anticipation of available parking filling quickly. Guests are encouraged to arrive at the stadium with their entire party and enter and sit together. Ushers will be on hand to assist with seating. The saving of seats will not be permitted.

            The ceremony will also be streaming live at

            In the event of inclement weather, the graduation ceremony will be moved to Saturday, May 25 at 10 a.m. with gates to the stadium opening at 9 a.m. Information on graduation, including any changes to the date and time due to weather, will be posted on the District website, and District and CHS social media. Skyward Family Access will also be utilized in notifying parents of any changes to the May 24 exercises.

           Helpful information for graduates, parents, family, and friends attending the event are posted on the District homepage and also under the Parent tab on the 2019 Graduation page.
