Pasco Sun Dome Graduations Will Involve Enhanced Security; Families Should Plan for Extra Time

Land O’ Lakes, FL – (May 23, 2018) – This year, the USF Sun Dome will employ enhanced security measures for Pasco County Schools high school graduations.

Family members and friends attending graduations at the Sun Dome should plan to arrive early to build in time for the following security measures, so they don’t miss any of the commencement ceremonies:

  • Sun Dome staff will use hand-held metal detector wands on all guests prior to entrance into the facility.
  • All purses and bags will be searched.
  • No backpacks will be permitted in the Sun Dome.
  • If guests want to bring cameras or binoculars, they may not be in cases; cases should be left in vehicles.

These safety precautions are new Sun Dome requirements designed to enhance the security of our graduates, their families, and school personnel. Pasco County Schools supports all efforts designed to increase the safety of our students, staff, and families.
