If your student received a failing grade in any course, counselors have added them to the summer school list to make up their credits. Check your school email for the course you are enrolled in. On June 8th, teacher and room assignments will be emailed.

Graduation

Graduation is Thursday, June 10 at 7pm at Fred Kelly Stadium. Each graduate will currently be allowed four attendees, and the event will be live-streamed. Graduation ticket pickup will begin Monday, June 7th in the Counseling Office.


If you have not yet picked up your pre-ordered cap and gown, please pick it up from the Student Center. If you were notified that you received an award, those can be picked up in the Counseling Office.

Transcripts

All seniors needing an official transcript to send to their respective colleges after graduation will need to create an account with Parchment and order their final transcript through the service. Final grades will be posted about a week after graduation. A small fee applies. Counselors do not send final transcripts to schools, this is the responsibility of the student.

Virtual Wellness Center

Our School Psychologists have created a wonderful virtual Wellness Center. Please visit by clicking the link and exploring all the resources they have curated for your mental health and wellness.

4th Quarter Grades

The grading period will end for periods 0, 2, 4, 6-9 on June 10. Grades will post to the transcripts for all periods, 0-9, at this time. Any questions about your student's current grade should be directed towards their current teacher.
