This year we continue the tradition of the Graduation motorcade for our students & families. The motorcade is a "vehicle parade" that starts at WHS and continues towards the graduation venue.

The Wethersfield Police Department will facilitate the motorcade from Wethersfield High School to Hanmer School parking lot. Students enter via the Wolcott Hill Road entrance at 4:30 p.m. and depart at 5:00 p.m. All motor vehicle laws will be enforced by WPD including the following: street legal vehicles only, cannot exceed maximum allowable passengers per vehicle, no sitting in the back of pick-up trucks, etc. Please be mindful that the WPD rules are there to protect the safety of our graduates & families in advance of their graduation.

Students will take a left out of WHS and head north on Wolcott Hill Road, then take a right onto Nott Street where they will cross the Silas Deane Highway with police assistance. The motorcade will continue on State Street past Cove Park. It will continue by taking a right onto Main Street, then a right onto Church Street and finally a right onto Garden Street ending at the Hanmer School. Students will park there and walk over to Cove Park and line up on the sidewalk.
