Graduation Weather-Related Relocation Plan
Due to inclement weather on Graduation Day, we will move the graduation inside and hold the ceremony in the upper gym. All times will remain the same, students report at 4:30 pm and graduation ceremony will start at 5:30 pm. Notification of this change will happen by 11:00 am on the date of graduation, notification of the rain venue will be made via Connect-Ed Call, Email, and the information will be posted on the district and high school websites.
Photographs will be taken by a professional photographer who has been engaged specifically for graduation. The photographer will take your graduate’s picture as he/she receives their diploma. There is no obligation to purchase this picture. However, if you wish to take advantage of the photo offer from the photographer, you should follow directions in the materials that will be sent you under separate cover.
All course work must be completed by May 22nd. Please note that only students who have completed and passed all course requirements will be eligible to participate in the June 2 graduation ceremony. If you are in doubt as to your academic record, please check in with your counselor. All materials and equipment loaned to you by the school must be returned to the appropriate teacher, coach or advisor no later than May 22nd as well. Please return all library books to the library. Any outstanding fines (library, parking, books, etc.) must be paid before you pick up your cap and gown. All outstanding obligations must be settled by May 22nd at the very latest.
