Teachers are still available each day during blended learning times before and after classes to help and support. Thank you for reaching out to them if you need assistance or have questions about make-up work.

Textbooks and technology will be collected after exams are finished. Seniors can turn in borrowed technology during on-campus graduation rehearsal days and underclassmen will be able to turn items in the first week of June. If you are an on-campus learner, feel free to drop of textbooks and technology at the AP office.

Update *** NEISD 2021 Graduation Information -

The City of San Antonio has announced changes to safety protocols at the Alamodome, which will affect NEISD graduation ceremonies in the following ways:

  • The Alamodome will open the facility to full event capacity for NEISD graduation ceremonies.
  • Seating will be general admission on a first come, first served basis. Tickets will no longer be required or accepted. If you have already received a ticket, discard it.
  • There is no limit to how many family members can attend.
  • The use of facial coverings are still required for NEISD graduates. However, facemasks are optional for guests attending graduations.
  • Temperature checks will no longer be required.
  • There has been a change in parking. Vaccines are currently being administered in Lot B, which allows for families to park in Lot C. Due to the increase of capacity, the Alamodome has also opened Lot D. Please refer to the Alamodome parking map for information on how to access the various Lots.

We will continue to keep you updated as additional information or changes are received from the Alamodome and City of San Antonio. Thank you for your cooperation and we look forward to celebrating the class of 2021!

Updated Graduation FAQs - updated 5-18-21

*** Tickets are no longer needed for graduation!


Senior Signs - Order yours today! Non-personalized at $10 and personalized at $15 are available. Here is the link to order yours today.

Cap and Gown - Cap & Gown is required for the Graduation ceremony on May 31. If you are still in need of a cap and gown, please contact Josten's at www.highschoolachievements.com

There are no cap and gown sales or deliveries at TRHS.

NHS Stoles and Honor Grad Cords - If you were unable to pick up your National Honor Society Stoles and Honor Graduate Cords during the Josten's pick up event, you can stop by the Roosevelt Assistant Principal's office between 8am - 4:30pm on school days and pick those items up from Ms. Yadira Gutierrez, one of the assistant principal administrative assistants.

DATA Senior Awards - DATA will honor their Class of 2021 Seniors specifically in another special event on Monday, May 24 from 5:00pm - 6:30pm. The DATA Awards will be a Park and Walk-Up event in the front parking lot beside the Saber building with various stations for our seniors to celebrate with teachers as they walk along and gather several awards and special surprises.

DATA Stoles for Graduation - With graduation happening at the Alamodome this year, distributing items at the dome will be much different than how we have done it in previous years at the Coliseum. Therefore, we will be distributing the DATA Stoles to seniors at the Monday, May 24 DATA Senior Awards event and then graduates will return them at the end of graduation on May 31 at the Alamodome. If a senior is not able to attend the May 24 event, they will need to stop by the DATA office after graduation rehearsals the last week of school to get their stole.
