Dear Parents and Guardians of Clements Seniors:
Fort Bend ISD is pleased to share the 2017 High School Graduation ticketing process for our ceremonies at the Smart Financial Centre at Sugar Land. We are excited to hold the graduation ceremonies at this new venue within the FBISD attendance boundaries. To ensure there is maximum seating capacity for all of the families with graduating seniors, we are using a similar ticketing process that other school districts, like Katy ISD and Cypress-Fairbanks ISD, have used successfully.
The Smart Financial Centre in Sugar Land provides a new and convenient entertainment venue for the 2017 Graduation Ceremonies. Smart Financial Centre is located at 18111 Lexington Boulevard in Sugar Land. The indoor seating capacity for the venue is approximately 6,200.
In previous years, close to 57,000 family members and friends were able to attend the FBISD graduation ceremonies as more than 5,400 graduates received their diplomas. The attendance at our 2016 graduation ceremonies ranged from 3,200 to close to 6,000 per event depending on the size of the graduating class.
In making our plans, we have been working with some of the same experienced staff members who coordinated past FBISD graduations in the former Compaq Center and in the Toyota Center. In discussions with the Smart Financial Centre operators, we have a solid plan with guaranteed tickets per student based on the anticipated guests from previous years and the size of the graduating class.
General guidelines for obtaining tickets include:
As in years past, all FBISD graduation ceremonies will be live-streamed, allowing friends and family who are unable to attend to watch live on the internet.
We believe this ticket process is the best way to ensure that every graduate’s family is guaranteed seating in the Smart Financial Centre. We look forward to sharing this special event with our students and families.

Stay home when you are sick!
Per FBISD policy, a student may not attend school if he/she has a temperature of 100 or greater. When you are sick, stay home from school and avoid going out in public. This will help prevent spreading your illness to others.
Cover your Cough!
Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or the inside of your elbow when coughing or sneezing. It may prevent those around you from getting sick.
Practice good hand hygiene!
Washing your hands with soap and water will often protect you from germs. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand rub.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth!
Germs are often spread when a person touches something that is contaminated with germs and then touches his or her eyes, nose or mouth.
Practice other good health habits!
Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces and home or school. Get plenty of sleep, be physically active, manage your stress, drink plenty of fluids and eat nutritious foods.
Get the flu shot!
A yearly flu shot will help prevent getting the flu.
