considerable traffic congestion just before graduation, so it is 
recommended that students allow themselves an extra margin of time.

available at the Greek all day to help with cap and gowns.

families at the Greek Theater, even for disabled. There will be shuttle

inflatable balls, cell phone usage, etc. will be warned and then

g*. * It is strongly recommended that you do not attempt to drive and 
park near the Greek theater up Hearst Street or onto Gayley Street as

park near the Berkeley High campus and take the free shuttle bus 
provided by BHS.

Greek Theater is a pay lot at the northwest corner of Hearst Street and

j . Disabled Access:  There is no designated area for disabled parking 
at the Greek Theatre for graduation.  Disabled people, including those
