Please read all emails and Edline updates you get this year so you don't miss anything important.

We're looking forward to a great year. Please let us know how we can help you navigate this year.

Senior Lunch

The BIG privilege for most seniors is off-campus lunch on Fridays. Seniors are allowed to leave campus at 11:40 and must return to campus by 12:40. Please read and understand these guidelines related to senior lunch:
  • Each senior must have a signed Senior Lunch Permission Form on file before he or she can participate.
  • Senior lunch happens only on Fridays in which we attend school all day.
  • To be eligible for senior lunch privileges, a senior must attend 7:30 a.m. chapel in the band room. Students are NOT admitted late to senior chapel.
  • Senior lunch is a privilege--not a right. It can be taken away from individual students or the entire class for misuse and/or abuse.
  • Senior chapel is managed by the senior class sponsors; they are the ones to make the call about it.

The Cost(s) of Being a Senior

Based on last year's expenses, here are some costs related to senior year you might want to plan on: Senior Jersey ($40ish), Parking Space ($25), Senior Portraits (sitting fee); Campus Recognition ($50 for cap, gown, diploma + whatever announcements, invitations, etc. you choose to purchase); Yearbook ($65 if purchased early); Cap & Gown Class Picture ($14), Graduation Fee ($100). In addition, if you take a dual enrollment/early scholar class, usual fees apply. These expenses are scattered throughout the year, and they are not all required. But for the planners out there, we just thought you might like to have a "heads up." Contact us if you have any questions.
