END OF THE YEAR INFORMATION
The final four days of school with be regular school days (7:15am - 11:15am) on June 17, 18, 21, & 22. However, there will be no afternoon supports on these days. We will use this time for material collection.
CHROMEBOOK RETURN - ONLY OUR SENIORS WILL BE RETURNING THEIR CHROMEBOOKS. Underclassmen will keep their devices over the summer. Please ensure that they are in a safe place and ready to be used in September.
In person seniors will return their devices during the last week of school with their English classes on Tuesday, June 15 and Wednesday, June 16. Virtual seniors must return Chromebooks to the Blue Cafeteria during the afternoon on both days on the following schedule:
Last Name A - L 12:00 - 1:00pm M-Z 1:00pm - 2:00pm
All devices, carrying cases and chargers must be in good, working order upon return in our to avoid a fine/obligation.
SENIOR/UNDERCLASS MATERIAL RETURN
Any material (Books, Classroom Supplies) must be returned to the appropriate teacher by Tuesday, June 22nd. In person students will return these supplies during the regular school day. Virtual Students will return these supplies to their individual teacher's classroom on Friday, June 18th or Monday, June 21st on the following schedule.
Last Name A - L 12:00 - 1:00pm M-Z 1:00pm - 2:00pm
Any school issued material not returned to the proper place will result in the student incurring an obligation. This places the student in danger of not being able to attend future school functions and they will not receive their diploma upon graduation.
ATTENTION SENIORS - IMPORTANT GRADUATION INFORMATION
Graduation will be on Gernerd Field at 2pm on Tuesday, June 22nd. Gates will open at 12:45pm. There will be handicapped seating available on the field for the individual and one guest. We will admit these folks first when the gates open.
Please be prepared to adjust the start time by an hour or so if it becomes necessary to adjust for potential weather. A final decision on time will be made on Tuesday morning.
All seniors, who meet the requirements for graduation, should be in their seat on the field hockey field to begin practice at 7:45am on both Monday, June 21st and Tuesday, June 22nd. As we present live diplomas during our ceremony, it is vital that all be present and in the correct order. Students who miss practice or are late will be placed at the rear of the line.
Unfortunately, seniors who do not meet the requirements for graduation are not permitted to participate in the ceremony.
Due to the relaxing of restrictions on graduation ceremonies and our event being held outside on Gernerd Field, each graduate will receive 7 tickets for the ceremony. Each graduate will receive their tickets on the final day of practice, Tuesday, June 22nd. It very important that they not lose their tickets, as there are NO extras available.
Two years ago, our three high schools began a partnership with each of our sending elementary schools, to give our graduates the opportunity to return to their former schools and walk the halls one more time prior to graduation. This year's event will take place on Monday, June 21st at 10:30am. Our graduates will receive their gowns during practice that morning and should wear them during their visit. I hope that all of our seniors take advantage of this great opportunity. It will be a wonderful experience for our students as well as their former teachers and our elementary students.
