GRADUATION CEREMONY

Combs High School Commencement 2021
Dear Combs Families,


As this unique and challenging school year comes to a close, we are already hard at work preparing for next year.


As part of our planning process, we need each of our families to complete their enrollment verification for 2021-2022. We’re pleased to share that this process can now be done entirely online via ParentVue, and will allow you to simply confirm your child’s current enrollment information, as well as select your desired learning model (in-person or virtual) for next year. If you have already completed this process, it is not necessary to do again.


All you have to do is click here to start the verification process. We ask that all families please complete this verification process by June 1st.


If you have any questions or issues with the process, please reach out to your school site for assistance.
