We are excited to celebrate with the Class of 2024 at graduation Saturday, May 25, at Dalzell Field!

Here are a few important reminders in advance of the day:

  • Hempstead High School’s ceremony will begin at 10 a.m. (with doors opening at 9 a.m.)
  • Dubuque Senior High School’s ceremony will begin at 3 p.m. (with doors opening at 2 p.m.)

GUESTS may enter Dalzell Field through both the East and Visitor Gates. NOTE: Due to construction, there will be NO ENTRANCE at the stadium’s West Gate.


For those unable to attend graduation in person, both ceremonies will be live streamed. VIEW THE LIVE STREAM.


  • Parking will be available in Dubuque Senior High School parking lots. (Once these lots are full, guests will still be able to drive into the lot to drop others in their party off at the main entrance to Dalzell Field).
  • Additional parking will be available in Clarke University parking lots – thanks to Clarke for allowing us to use these lots! Please note that parking IS NOT available in the St. Anthony’s Church parking lots.


  • Seating will be available in the home and visitor sections.
  • Accessible seating is available near the rails on the mezzanine.


  • A photography area to capture a photo of your graduate crossing the stage will be available on the field level. We ask that you exit the area once you take a photo of your graduate in order to ensure that everyone is able to get a photo.
  • Professional photographers will be taking photos of each graduate, which will be available for purchase. You will receive ordering information and proofs via email within a few weeks after the ceremony.
