Dear Boyd Bronco Senior Parents,

We look forward to honoring our McKinney Boyd High School seniors at the Graduation Commencement Ceremony on Friday, June 8, 2018.  We would like to inform you that this year’s graduations will take place at the Allen Event Center, located at 200 E. Stacy Road, Allen, Texas 75002.

McKinney ISD High School Graduation Times

McKinney Boyd High School – 9:00 a.m.

McKinney High School – 1:30 p.m.

McKinney North High School – 6:00 p.m.

We chose the Allen Event Center to host our commencement ceremonies for a variety of reasons including proximity, availability, attendance capacity, and convenience.  The Allen Event Center is roughly half the distance from McKinney as Prestonwood Baptist Church, where previous graduations have been held.   We also acknowledge there has been discussion in recent months regarding graduation venues, and it has been determined that the Allen Event Center affords the best opportunity to keep our focus on our graduates and their accomplishments.

Each student will be provided nine (9) general admission (GA) tickets for family and guests.  In addition, we are pleased to announce that families will also be given an option to purchase tickets in suites for $25 per seat.  Families can reserve a suite, or join other families and share a suite.  Food and drink options will also be available in the suites.  We will send additional information regarding these options in the near future.

We look forward to honoring graduates at this special occasion and will send out more information soon.
