Students bused to ceremony
On May 26, all East Aurora High School seniors will ride buses to Northern Illinois University together. Seniors will receive more information about departure times during senior assemblies.
Students will have the option of riding back to the high school on buses or with their families. Any students who want to return on the bus will have to pre-register for the return trip. Those forms will be provided at the Senior Assembly on April 27, 2017.
Free busing will be provided for all band, chorus, and NJROTC cadets who are part of the graduation ceremony as well.
