Group of Students Enjoying Safe Grad Night

What is Safe Grad Night?

What is SGN

Safe Grad Night is a tradition that provides a safe night and an alcohol/drug-free graduation celebration for the Whitefish High School senior class. The lock-in event, held from 10pm-2:30am, gives the seniors a chance to extend their graduation day with a fun night of continuous activities, TONS of prizes/giveaways, and plenty of food! It gives parents peace of mind, knowing their children are enjoying themselves and are safe. The event is (typically) held at The Wave in Whitefish, on the Saturday night following graduation.  Please see Safe Grad Night Information for further details.
