Grad Party FAQs

What is the West Linn HS Substance Free Grad Party?

How do I get to the Grad Party?

You will load buses at Providence Park on 18th Ave. and taken to a secret location at approximately 9:30 pm.  (Time may fluctuate a bit depending on when the ceremony ends, but you will have some time to take photos with your family and hand them your cap/gown and anything you are not bringing before we load the buses).  These bags will be checked in at the event but you will have the opportunity to get items from them. You will be dropped off at West Linn High School at approximately 5 am.


You will be assigned to a specific bus and there ARE NO BUS CHANGES.  You will be given a wrist band with your bus number.  It is important you keep the wrist band on, it shows you are supposed to be at the party and reminds you which bus to ride home.
