Picking Up Diplomas

Good Day All

For those students, recent graduates that have yet to receive the actual diploma we now have received them.

Students and Parents. We are still on summer hours, which means the hours are from 8:00 – 4:00 Monday – Thursday. The office staff is not on hand to allow you entry into the building. Therefore when coming to pick up diplomas. When arriving you will need to call the number on the front door, to inform us that you have arrived. It is better to call in advance to make arrangements for picking up diplomas.

Parents – Please note if your scholar is 18 we will not and cannot give you the diploma unless we have written permission to release the documents to you. Each folder will have the following items:

1. Diploma

2. Three (3) sets of transcripts in a sealed envelope. DO NOT open the sealed envelopes they are provided for you to use for college entrance and acceptance. Once the seal on the envelope is broken institutions of higher learning will not accept them.

3. One (1) transcript that is not sealed.

4. Check the name spelling on the diploma for any inaccuracies.

Congratulations again on your accomplishment! We are extremely proud of each of you.
